Another day, another hotel room.
But this time, I have a few buddies with me!
Unfortunately, my 94 year old (95? I canâ€™t keep up!) grandpa had a seizure earlier this week, so last night, we drove from Charlotte to Gainesville, Florida to see him. I had been doing the, â€œIâ€™ll come down to see him next weekendâ€ thing for weeks on end, which, in hindsight, was pretty presumptuous of me. No time like the present to see the people you love. Gee-pa seems to be doing pretty well now â€“ he bounces back amazingly well. Thank goodness!
And doubly unfortunately, the Husbandâ€™s high school friend, his wife, and their toddler are in town in Charlotte this weekend for a wedding. We only got to see them for a few minutes before we left (boo!) but at least now they can spread their stuff out at our house and relax.
When traveling together and with the dogs, we always seek out hotels with kitchenettes so we can bring some of our own food. This meal was a combo of things we brought from home (peanut butter, Udiâ€™s bagel) and items from the breakfast bar. Yum.
Time to hang out with Grandpa. Someone his age was born before the end of World War I and before women had the right to vote in America. He has some interesting stories to tell!
