So what's new with you? Nothing new here with Typepad. Still can't blog without a big ole pain in the tush. If I weren't so busy with other things in my life, I'd switch to a different service. But right now, I'm de-stashing, de-cluttering and getting the house ready for sale. We are packing our bags and heading West. Not too far but far enough that it's a good compromise for us.
I've been wanting to move South and East, somewhere near friends, families and water. The Husband has grown up in the area and keeps saying, "sure! let's go!" but when it comes down to it, he doesn't want to go. I CAN'T BLOG LIKE THIS!
Anyway, we found an area that will allow us a bit more space, has a pool and loads of people we already know. Now we just pray that someone wants a 4 bedroom, all brick rambler on a bit over an acre right off the Beltway. Know anyone, send them our way!
Our weekend away was wonderful! But stay away from Lansdowne Resort. The golf was great! The Golf Club staff and food were wonderful. The actual hotel staff could not have been more rude unless they actually spit in my face. Seriously, I have never, ever been treated so rudely by the front desk. And as you know I used to travel 40 weeks a year. It's a shame because when we got married there 8 years ago, it was a wonderful experience. And the food was so much better. The meals we had were just okay. Nothing great. Only 1 of the desserts was anything to really go "Wow!" We were served our red wine at dinner in a white wine glass. Are you kidding me? Seriously, I know they had a problem with staff recently but I don't think it's that difficult to train people red in this one, white in that one. And spa services . . . . The Husband's 50 minute massage wasn't even 30 minutes long. My upgraded pedicure was shorter and less through than the one I get up the street for $25. And I know spa treatments. So I'm very bummed with those aspects but the weekend was just what the doctor ordered for the Husband and I. Especially seeing that we will be spending the next two weeks in super clean up and spruce up mode!
Happy Knitting! Happy De-Cluttering. I'm off to take a full truck load to the Salvation Army.
