Just a Reminder…

Rick and I will be leaving tomorrow (Friday) morning for our weekend trip up north. I want to leave at “0-dark thirty”…he wants to leave well after the sun comes up. His reasoning…we supposedly can’t check into our hotel until 4:00pm so why hurry up there only to have no place to rest. My thought is that we can always visit with Joey and his mom until our hotel room becomes available. We’ll see who wins this skirmish.

I’ve been trying to decide whether to take my laptop, “Silver Wonder,” on her first outing. I tried to read the hotel website to see if they have free in-room Internet access but all it says is there “may” be a small fee so I’m thinking the laptop can stay home. We’re only going to be gone until Monday afternoon; I can always use my cell phone to communicate with my family; and taking a short sabbatical from BlogLand might be just the thing I need to erase the blogging blahs I seem to have at the moment.

So, since I won’t be around for the next few days, I wish all of you a wonderful weekend with lots of good weather and lots of fun!

Oh…and a little heads-up. I’ve been toying with the idea of changing the look of my blog…at least a little. I’m bored with it at the moment so, when I return, you might just see a new look. Maybe…

I too like the lovely banner and the soothing one color background.

Love the phrase "O-dark thirty", but would prefer to experience it with eyes closed and head on pillow in nice warm bed.

I love your blog the way it is, but I can surely understand the "need" to change it every once in a while. Your blog and the lovely picture in the header is what gave me the incentive to change mine recently.

Have fun on your trip.

Patti said...

I love your blog's look. That picture is so calming. I vote to keep it for awhile, anyway. ;-)


Have a safe trip ~ I know you will have a good time playing with the little one.

I hope you have a nice trip and have fun with Joey. That's a bummer about the internet. Our hotel had free internet, but we don't have a lap-top. They did allow me to use their office computer to do my online check-in. So that was super nice. I really like Hampton Inn. When we stayed at Days Inn in VA they had a business center with computers you could borrow...but you had to use the front desk to get printing. makes sense.

I have plans to change my blog around a bit today once my artist gets her act together and finishes my graphics! Teenagers!

Have a wonderful trip and enjoy yourself. I think a break from Blogland is probably a good idea once in awhile and am thinking of doing the same myself - just for a little while!

Have a great trip. The unofficial rule of free wireless access at hotels is, the more economical your hotel choice, the better your chance of free wireless. At least that's been the experience of the travelers living here.

Have fun and forget the laptop...it is usually $9.95 for high speed access a DAY. Changing the look of your blog is fun and kind of like rearranging furniture and getting new drapes.

Hope you have a safe trip!

It's fun to rearrange the furniture at your blog, you can always change it back if you don't like it. So, have fun.

Do whatever you think is best concerning your blog (OMG do I sound like mom?) Whatever you decide will be terrific.

How did the weekend go? Who eventually won out?

Hope you had a good sabbatical. I think that helps; you will come back excited to see what you missed in Blogland.
