... quivering. "A man in a hockey mask kept shaking a can of spray paint and the noise frightened me." Next morning, as I unhooked the RV, I glanced over my shoulder to our neighbour. Still no sign of him, but his utility did somehow look blacker. We drove to McKinney without incident (or anyone from the RV Park pursuing us), to the depot where we had picked up the RV about a month ago, and handed back the keys, safe and sound. ...
... order for whatever reason (seems like there always is...) and as I was shuffled to the back of the line along with about 45 other people, it dawned on me that I would likely have to gate-check my carry-on. This, also, seems to happen quite regularly with American airline flights. I've had it happen on a Delta flight, a United flight, and now a US Airways flight. Makes me wonder if the United States needs to go back to school and learn how to run their ...
We bought a truck to carry the camper today! It needs a little work, but seems basically strong. Once we get it travel-ready, we need to go to Arizona to pick up the camper.
In other news today, we also decided to rent out our house (rather than selling), and selected a property management company.
A huge progress day!
When termites have been discovered deep in a home, there are typically 2 stages of treatment. The initial, crucial step is to get these pests from out of your home. If done right, this 1st phase may possibly also offer a shot at eliminating the colony responsible. Take note though, these types of interventions won't in reality protect your home and are only the primary step. The nest location may be impossible to determine (it might not be on your property) and ...
... busy when we arrived; in fact we were the only ones to walk around the house. We took lots of pictures and I even went up to my knees in the pool. We had the place to ourselves and the lady that introduced us to the ranch said that the past ten days had seen trade drop off considerably. Probably due to the credit crunch and the outbreak of Pig Flu in Mexico, which was not that far away.
By 5pm is was time for fridge magnet shopping ...

I went to Dallas on a work-related trip, and my coworker selected this property. This was my first stay at an Embassy Suites, and after my great experience here, it will not be my last!
After a long flight and a short ride from Love Field, we walked through the hotel doors to the sound of a jubilant desk clerk saying, "Yay!" She immediately made me smile. It turned out she was from Chicago and was happy to see the Chicago Bears logo on my shirt. She was so welcoming and warm that it really set the tone for a great stay.
We arrived during the manager's reception, which is held nightly from 6-7:30. They offer complimentary light snacks and cocktails to their guests as a thank you for selecting their property. We decided to imbibe before heading to dinner. The vegetable platter was fresh, the mixed nuts were delicious, and the bartender was very nice.
The hotel boasts a large lounge area with couches, chairs and tables that make it feel very homey. It's nice to be able to have a separate area to relax outside the hotel room without having to leave the property. My favorite part of the lobby was the water feature complete with two swans named Baron and Queen. They were so elegant and graceful. It was great to watch them glide along the water.
There is also an indoor pool and spa that could be seen from the lobby, and it looked so refreshing that I was sorry I didn't being my swimsuit.
The rooms are equally fantastic! We stayed in a two room suite with a separate living area and bedroom with two queen beds. They are very clean and comfortable with fluffy comforters and crisp, white sheets. There is ample seating in the living area as well as two desk areas which made working very easy. There are also plugs in the bases of the lamps which is so convenient!
The bathroom was roomy and nicely equipped. The hair dryer they provide is full size and there is lots of counter space. The shower is also roomy, and the water pressure is perfectly steady!
They offer breakfast in the morning. There are many choices including selections that are cooked to order. I opted for the omelet with everything. They even had jalapenos. It was very good and my bacon on the side was nice and crisp. The chef and the breakfast staff were all very courteous and helpful. Other selections included pancakes, oatmeal, varieties of pastries, bagels, English muffins, cereal, fresh fruit, yogurt, granola, and more! There is a lot of seating in the dining area, so it was easy to settle in and enjoy.
Every staff member I interacted with was incredibly hospitable and engaging. I will happily recommend this property to others, and next time I'm in Dallas, I'll be back!
