the weekend away

I am home from the weekend! Oh my what a weekend!

Dad and I stayed at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City, it's 5 star and oh wow! I felt so much like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. I had to remind myself not to gawk and checked myself for drool as subtly as I could! I have stayed at nice hotels before but not like this! As strange as this might sound I think I'd rather stay somewhere less "nice" and more full of character charm.

The bummer of the weekend was that Patrick Dempsey was at the track and I didn't get to meet him. I saw him doing a press thing and didn't get close enough, so Dad and I went on and came back latter and he was in hiding or had left for the evening or something. The day after our race Dad said "oh, we should have told Geri that you haven't met him yet, she always knows where he is and loves making sure her special people have had a chance to meet him. That's OK, none of you would belive me without pictures anyways.

I missed the girls a ton, but I was so glad to not have to worry about them, and secretly I was overjoyed that A would have to be in charge for the whole weekend, do two night nights with them, take care of everything. True the house was not picked up at all, but other than that he did a decent job.

Today is cleaning!

Sounds like you had fun. And I would have believed you too.
Glad that A and the girls survived without you.

You could have passed a pic of just anybody and fooled me because I don't have a clue who Patrick Dempsey is. Well, at least you can say you have been there. Glad you had a nice wekeend. Cheers, Ann :-)
