12/8/08 Travel

Drove to St. Louis today. Will begin a CPI recertification class tomorrow. It will be weird. I worked for the company for 10 years, until 10/06 and I taught this class since 1984 where I worked, so it will be odd to have a "young whippersnapper" teach me. :)

And I'm so grateful my back is good. I'm getting off the pain pills, so I have to be careful of what I do, but that's okay. I'm in a real good mood about my back.

Went to my doc yesterday because I have a sinus infection. What a horrible time to be away from home, huh? But the hotel offers me sleep without having to take care of my animals, or without laundry, dishes, etc. So it's kind of nice being somewhere where people take care of you (for a price). Room service guy, Willie, brought me soup and grilled cheese, but threw in tea and lemon at no charge. What a sweetie!

Time for the shower, and then to training.

Oh, what I discovered about my column on examiner.com? If you don't post every day your ratings don't stay high. So I hurried up and posted last night. We have to post four times a week, but I'm going to try for more. I want to earn a little bit of money.

Have a good time at the training and enjoy having people take care of you for the week. That sounded so sweet of the guy to bring to some tea with your meal. Take care of yourself.

I love hotels! I hope your sinus infection clears up.

Thanks, Jill and Andrea. The hotel is fancy-schmancy, just the way I like it when someone else is paying. :) Still feel like crap but am going to bed soon--after watching Biggest Loser of course.

If you are staying somewhere that Willie is "taking care of you for a price" it might not be the kind of hotel you think it is.

Don't judge me.

:) Actually you cracked me up.
