We headed to Oregon yesterday. Pretty smooth drive, actually. Got to meet Todd and Sunkyu and Lia for Pieology Pizza, and then on to Salem. Staying at the lovely La Quinta, sharing a parking lot with Costco. Try and I waited in the car while Eric checked us in. We asked how it looked in there. He said, "normal, except for the people" us, "????" Eric, "they all look like they're from Puyallup".
Yeah, and the walls are paper thin. Eric decided he's on his own vacation program, so he headed off to a late movie while I tried to stay awake and help Taylor with homework. As we were trying fall asleep about 11:15, we could hear the guy on one side of us snoring and the people on the other side talking. Nice.
We needed to be downstairs at 8:15, so Taylor set her alarm for 7:30 and I set mine for 7:45 as a backup.
Eric rolled in at just after midnight, luckily Tay slept through but o course I was wide awake then, after a good half hour nap. He was all concerned about setting an alarm (does he really think we're that irresponsible?!?!) I told him not to worry, we both had alarms set. But....OCD. Tossed and turned and finally got to sleep.
5 am Taylor must have choked on her spit so her coughing fit woke us up. And yep, you guessed it, I'd had a decent 4 hour sleep, that's good enough, right? Wide. Awake. I finally fell asleep, only to wake from a nightmare 10 minutes later. Barely 6:00. Tossed and turned and finally fell into a good sleep. I really could have used that extra hour....
But SOMEONE SET HIS ALARM FOR 7:00. And HE was able to hit he red tutor and fall into an immediate snoring slumber.
I'm laying here in the dark, steam coming out my ears, venting to TypePad.....
