Peter's Friday Blog - The conclusion to Back to the Elevator in the Graveyard is now online! & Hotel comparison!
Good day, WOE Friends!
It's finally Friday! I hope you had a productive week. I've been feeling myself again and after the vacation and sick time, finally getting back into the routine.
As you'll see from some of the pictures from our trip, my diet was shot from the beginning. We stopped at McDonald's three hours into our trip. But being that I was sick, I actually lost two pounds. Jennifer only gained two, but has lost it since! I keep saying I'm going to start a new diet plan, but as of yet, zero. Soon, I will have different news. Soon.
I'm very excited to announce the riveting conclusion of the WOE Short Story: Back to the Elevator in the Graveyard! Part 8. is now online! Find it on the WOE Short Story Page or click on the ad below.
I included the WOE HR Picture: Don't Gawk.
I will be adding more pictures to Peter's Pics this weekend.
WOE Complex tour/behind the scenes - Comparing Hotel Family to our vacation hotel.
I must tell you, there is absolutely no comparison from one hotel to the other; other than they both have beds, and a bathroom.
I will tell you my thoughts on the place we stayed for six nights in Peter's Pics soon. But let me start the comparison here.
The beds: We had two Queen beds. Jennifer and I slept on one while Sally slept on the other. We are used to sleeping in a King bed. This caused Jennifer to lay on her side, away from me, just so we could fit comfortably (remember, we need to diet). Sally wore earplugs due to Jennifer's snoring. Hotel Family has a Sleep Number King bed in the en suite. There is a Queen bed in a separate bedroom if you're sleeping three to four. Yes, the two bedrooms will be a little more, but well worth it.
Bathrooms: One bathroom, with one sink in the whole room. Compared to two bathrooms and a kitchen sink. It's tough to wash or even rinse everything in the bathroom sink.
Living room and dining room included. The extra room meant you didn't have to eat and watch TV from you're own bed. Both have balconies.
Suite Butler to control the temperature, music, order food, supplies, towels, maid service, calendar, order/swap tickets & reservations, and more. Hotel: Call down or walk to the front desk.
Portal Box - Order your food, beverages, supplies right to your Portal Box. No opening the door, no room service fee or exorbitant prices, no tipping, and all private. Our hotel had a microwave that had to be unplugged and plugged back in to reset and a mico-fridge.
The Meal Plan. Yes, this does cost $25 each per day. But what we spent on food outside the hotel was ridiculous. We spent over $50 for breakfast, not including tip and $70 for a basic BBQ for lunch. For $25 a person, you get three full meals that can be eaten at the Hotel, the Complex, dine in or room service, and includes snacks and midnight dessert buffet.
Lots and lots of toddlers. And they were very loud with lots of energy. And they were everywhere; shows, hot tubs, restaurants, you name it! At the WOE; age ten and up!
I loved sitting on our balcony and looking at the mountains. But I sure miss the amenities and comfort of Hotel Family.
I hope you have a great weekend and enjoy the conclusion of Back to the Elevator in the Graveyard.
Thanks for reading! Until next time,
