I felt all important and stuff
So, I got to go on a business-trip-like-thingy to Ohio last week. It was kind of fun, actually. Mainly because I didn't have to work. And got all my food paid for. And got a hotel room to myself.

Late last year, the company I work for was bought by a larger company. They do some things differently than we do/did, so my boss and I and one other person from a different department went for a visit to one of the regional offices. I got to observe their client services department and listen in on one of the rep's phone calls. (Not just ONE phone call. But phone callS made to one rep. Oh, nevermind.) We got a tour of the building and lots of other stuff that would bore you.

On the way, we ate at Cheeseburger In Paradise. Look! Proof I went to the bathroom at CIP!
Please ignore goofy look on my face.

On to the good stuff, though. We got to the hotel and found out that we each got our own room! Rock on! But we were all spread out on different floors. That was no big deal, though. I got to my room and it was a suite! I was like a kid in a toy store, I swear.

All that space for li'l ole me! Woo hoo!

Monday evening, there was a "manager's reception" in the lobby of the hotel with free drinks! I had two tequila sunrises and that was all it took to make me feel all warm and after that, we walked to the Macaroni Grille. Have you been to the Macaroni Grille? Their portions are ginormous! On the way back, we got rained on. Cold rain. Guess who didn't wear their jacket to the restaurant? Yeah, that would be me.

Back in my hotel room I was lost without a computer to log onto so I changed clothes, texted my husband, watched John & Kate Plus 8 and went to bed. It was like vacation!

To sum it up free food, free lodging, no real work. A really good way to spend 36 hours.

    I know just how you feel. My wife and I stayed at the Hilton in Branson last fall. They upgraded us to a one bedroom suite. OMG, now I know how the high rollers live. It was great. Only about six more weeks before we take the grandcrew to Disney World...WoooHooo!
    Oh yeah, the infamous 70's wedding pic will be posted first thing in the morning.
