Living in a Hotel is a Lot Like...


Our days are freakishly similar. Day after day. First, we take full advantage of the hot breakfast buffet. Yum! Whatever will I do once we go back home? Oh, yeah...cook?

Soon after breakfast, we head out to the pool, where we spend most of the afternoon.

Every day A. has gotten stronger with her swimming. She likes to swim underwater, use Nemo (the fish kick board) and the noodle. I have even been able to take short breaks on a nearby chair. We have started taking snacks to the pool, so we hardly leave poolside at all. Ahh..this is the life! See my view...

Since our hotel is within walking distance to Boston Market I have been there often. Meet my new friend, the Market Chopped Salad with Chicken. Now, please don't ruin this for me by politely informing me that my new friend has a zillion calories. It's full of chopped veggies, lettuce, sunflower seeds, cranberries, a touch of bleu cheese and I only use part of the dressing. We won't discuss the latte from the Starbucks that is also within walking distance, okay?

In the evenings we might go to a nearby school playground to play...

or do some artsy craftsy stuff (lovin' the foam shape sticker things), play dress up or games or...


maybe take a short reading break.


All in all, hotel life has been better than I thought. As we are getting closer to moving back home, I'm starting to realize how hard it will be to say goodbye to the breakfasts, the pool, the clean towels, the little packs of Maxwell House. Sigh. I wonder if there is anything else around our house that needs to be fixed. Hmmm.

  1. This is so funny, I said the same thing to my husband last week on vacation. "It's kind of like Groundhog Day!" All the days were so relaxing, but very much the same. I'm glad you're making the best of it.

  4. Glad you're living it up. Having that daily maid service can't hurt either.

    What are you doing to your house?

  7. Stie: We had to move out while our wood floors were sanded and refinished. Long, sad story. Ha!
