Rocky Mountain Hi!

I'm posting this from the hotel "Business Library." It's just a little room with two computers and one of them is out of order. I shouldn't complain though. Anything is better than My Sweetie's laptop. Everyone knows I hate laptops or notebooks or whatever people call them. Or are those different things? Who cares? Not me.

Anyway it's not so bad. Fleetwood Mac is playing behind me in the lobby. No, the band is not in there. I mean on the hotel's "Muzak." But about the trip....

First I have to say how very very different it is taking a road trip east and taking a road trip west. Going west, there are no trees, few bathrooms, and very little else. There is lots of nothing for long stretches of times. At least going east, there are trees. There are also many, many more towns. Going east I mean. West? Not so much.

We got lucky at our first stop in Amarillo. Our hotel room actually had an outdoor space. And lots of restaurants to choose from to walk to. This one here in Colorado, nope. But, the room is much cooler (temperature wise, most certainly not the other) and it is so close to my daughter's house, it's crazy. I can't believe I hadn't seen her in almost 3 months. We had a great dinner together but we (My Sweetie mostly) were really tired and kept it short.

Sunday should be great: Rested up, and also I told everyone I was having some mother/daughter time. I didn't come all this way for group activities. We are going to hang together for a few hours. I'm really looking forward to that. After being in such proximity with me for 48 hours, I bet My Sweetie is looking forward to the break also. It's late, but the adventure continues.....

Nope. Just these two computers.

I love roadtrips. Even if all there is to do is count telephone poles.

I have found that I do not much care for them.
