It's been a long week, but I'm finally home. I will suffice it to say that the week went well . . . well, if you don't count the heat and humidity we suffered through all week long! I don't know how people who live in the midwest do it - - I was miserable. We passed a sign downtown that said 115 degrees. I don't think it really WAS 115, but it felt like it! So, the heat - - oh, and a little melodrama within the family, but we kind of all were holding our breath for that one. Other than that, we had a nice celebration of my dad's life and remembered the good old days - - and the good days still to come.
And, about my haunted hotel - - the Skirvin. No, we didn't stay there. I was being a little conservative with my dinero, and it was a bit too pricey for us. We decided, instead, to do a priceline thing and got a 3 1/2 star hotel downtown for less than $100! This 3 1/2 star hotel was very, very, very nice - - and right across the street from the Skirvin!! So, naturally we went and explored! It really was quite gorgeous and had a really early 1900s feel to it when you walked into the lobby. 30 foot (feet??) high red velvet drapes off to the left, the gold elevators straight ahead . . . that 30s music playing everywhere. It kind of felt like the Stanley Hotel (you know, from the Shining). I expected Jack Nicholson with his ax to assault us in the hallway! But, he didn't.
But, enough for now. I have files piled up that I must get to . . . I can't wait to catch up on all your happenings from this past week!!
