Where I stayed
This weekend was a much-needed long weekend. Ever since coming back from New Hampshire, our weeks and weekends have been full of driving up to the southern tip, up to the northwest corner of New Mexico, and back. Crazy. But here, we had four nights in one place, and four days of non-work. Sure, we had to get our oil changed, but that just gave us an excuse to go to the mall!
We found a Holiday Inn Express under budget through Hotwire
And it was a joy to walk. The weather was beautiful. Kelsey spent a lot of time down by the pool, catching some sun.
We did have to go to the mall while we waited for our oil to be changed. We hadn't been to a mall in so long, because the rest of the places we've been in Texas for our oil changes haven't been big enough for malls. We've just been able to find Walmarts--and that's not the most comfortable place to spend an hour and a half. In the mall, we ate some pretzels and did some people-watching. Kelsey bought me an early birthday gift at the Crocs store. She bought me a pair of flip-flops that have extra-durable pads on the underside of each the pressure-points on the foot. They also have great arch-support--a rarity for flip-flops. So I look forward to having a nice summer sandal that won't kill my already-weak feet.
All in all, it was a nice restful long weekend!
