Room without a view.

I can't believe it's been almost a week since I wrote a post. Wow, how time flies when you're not having fun.

OH, I kid. Packing and moving and cleaning out the refrigerator is fun. In fact, I think we'll plan that for our next vacation's agenda.

The fact is that I'm tired, but I am not too tired to blog. If I ever tell you that I am too tired to blog, then send an ambulance to my home. I guess that would be tough since y'all don't really know where I live.

But anyhoo.

Our movers arrived earlier in the week. There is something unsettling about watching a perfect stranger sort through and handle all of your belongings while you stand by and just cross your fingers, hoping they don't break anything and then you buy them lunch.

Now we are staying in a hotel that is like a little efficiency apartment, complete with a kitchen and working oven.

Staying in a hotel room with a kitchen is very positive in the planning stages, but once you've watched weird strangers pack your dishes all day, you kind of wish you had a regular room without even a microwave so that you are forced to go out to eat. Instead, you end up making macaroni and cheese for dinner using the hotel's cheap, thin pots and plastic spoons.

The awesome part is that you can feel good about serving up the mac 'n cheese you made in the hotel room even though Chili's makes the exact same kind from the blue box and everything because your little girl thanked God that her mommy is a good cook during the blessing.

And with that last run-on sentence, I think I'll close.

More of the exciting saga of moving tomorrow...

Moving, what a joy! But once your settled in your new place I'm sure you'll be glad. We stayed in a motel with a kitchen for holidays and they had all of one saucepan and one baking sheet. But at least they had "real" cutlery. LOL.

Yeah...we lived like that for 2 months when we moved to San Antonio from Utah without a house or much of a job, for that matter.

Lots and lots of tortellini with powered Alfredo mix on the stove top.

Strangely, it's one of our favorite memories. Enjoy!

I can totally relate to the stove top pasta since I just finished moving too, lol. Yes, it is much better to eat out so all you have to do is just enjoy the fact that you get to relax and let the staff clean up after you :-)

So how was/is your hotel stay going. I work for Hampton Inn so I've gotten used to the best , :-D You should really come stay with us next time you travel or move, lol. You won't be disappointed and you won't have to cook if you don't want to.
