Go stay in a hotel they said, it will be fun they said, get away from your routine they said…after ten nights and counting, I want my life back!
Some of you know, but others don’t ~ we had what we thought was a small electrical fire at the house a couple of weeks back. Well, what you could see as far as damage goes was small, but the further into the walls our electrician got the more problems.
With that said, the house has been without heat for 9+ days and our family of five, plus Pippa have been at the Drury Inn in Dublin trying to remain sane.
This of course happened right as Spring Break started for the kids and threw a major wrench in all of our plans.
So, we have made the best of it, doing different things we could all do, swimming, going to the park, COSI and of course going out to eat, because we don’t have a kitchen here at the hotel either.
Now, the Drury Inn has been amazing and very accommodating. We have a great breakfast each morning and Kevin and I get three free drinks at night while the kids chow down on the least healthiest food ever. I am grateful Juliette has opted for salad and a baked potato twice and Josephine likes carrots and celery, so they do get some healthy food in.
The girls have enjoyed a friends birthday party, getting their nails done, lots of swimming, trying new foods, staying up late, playing with Beenie Boos, American Girl dolls, seeing Sesame Street Live (this was all Josephine), teaching classes with me and seeing their friends during break, all from a hotel room.
It has been an adventure and we are ready to go home. Maybe Wednesday…
Kids go back to school today, so it will be a day of change for all of us and it will all be done from our hotel room.
Here are some pictures of the fun we have been having:
