update - part four

Jan 12, 2008 at 5:39 PM
For a few days after we got to CW, we were not able to stay at the condo we were originally supposed to becaus ethe key was in the mail and it hadn't gotten there yet - mostly because of our not having been clear about when we'd arrive.

So, we stayed at the Belleview Biltmore, which we thought would be a nice place to stay but NO. Uh UNH.

It was so flipping spooky - I didn't sleep all night. I swear I had someone in my space all night.

These pictures are taken without any camera angle - the hallways actually do skew off to the side like that, and they're endlessly long, and it's just plain creepy, nothing holds still, and the floor tilts.

Supposedly that's the hotel Steven King stayed in before he wrote the shining. If not, it could have been. There was a big fire once upon a time, and it's the oldest inhabited wooden structure in the world.

We agreed not to stay there anymore. So we moved into the La Quinta over near the QI and Lenny's, which was blah but we got a free upgrade to a two room suite because we're so obviously newlyweds. The internet worked and the food was good. There were two separate bathrooms, which was weird because I kept realizing my toothpaste or hairbrush or makeup or whatever was in the other bathroom and having to switch. I didn't take pictures of the La Quinta. Why bother, they are all EXACTLY the same.

I spent nearly every day visiting my sisters, my mom, and hanging out at Kendra's house.

Then the condo key arrived, and we moved over there.

Great view.

Even better view with the twins in it!

And I spend the rest of that time hanging out with my new hubby in a fantastic condo on the water, hot tubbing with the girls, and hanging out with my sisters. Ooh!

Another picture from skating that I forgot before. Yeah, I'm too lazy to update my old post.

Oh yeah, while I was there, a bunch of stuff happened.

Libs and Zane broke up - after Zane stole money. Strange bird, that guy. I love him but he's got to start being himself again. This is getting old.

Grammy hasn't been feeling too good. That started then, too.

And I had an otherwise great time with my sisters and with Michael.
