ohio

took off for ohio on saturday..........headed to Lima... would've been lost for sure without Tom-Tom and Sommer....
we had planned on going to an econo lodge...but as soon as we pulled in...just got this creepy feeling, it looked abandonded.....so we seen that there was a days inn down the road so we decided to go there instead....after the wedding..sommer couldn't wait to get in the pool...

loved the rules sign....use bathroom not pool!!!



so for dinner we ran to subway and just picked up some subs....and then back to the room...where I still got to watch saturday night live and played with my new kit.....from kristina....after we went to bed....I was awaken at 3:30am to someone trying to get in our room....!!! so I went and peeked out the front window..and there was some drunk lady trying to get in!!! after she seen me...she just kept saying isn't this our room....so I made sure it was all locked up....but she was out there awhile...then I seen the cops drive by..and was talking to them....and then Tonee' had the room next to us....and she had 2 people actually walk in their room during the night....and they had keys!!!!!!!!! basically I think we were in some drug fested...prostitute...area...it was scary..., but cheap...I guess you get what you pay for?? so the next morning...we went down to get our free continental breakfast....yikes...there was like one bannana, 2 cookies., 2 bagels....and the juice machine...had knats flying all over the top of it...we all just looked at each other...and decided to move on to the next exit and look for a different place to stay
then we used the tom-tom to find a restaurant for breakfast......
one exit up we found this cute tiny family diner....and had a delicous breakfast....plus we eyed up a nice looking holiday inn...
so we went back to the room and packed up.......will post pics of the holiday inn tomorrow.....it was so nice!!!
just think a week from today I will be on my way to chicago....yeah!!! last night I went over jenieces, she was having a lil' cookout....but the menu was a little too...fresh for me!!!! they actually went and picked out a chicken....to kill and grill......ewwww...we stayed in the house when the killin' was going on....no thank you!!! don't want to see that...but it was fun...tried to scrap, but again jeniece was hoggin' all the mojo.....and then we watched the other bolynn girl...was pretty good....off the the dentist today to get my crown put on...I have really had enough of the dentist...lately.....

ah, the joys of the "road trip"...when I was a kid, my mom took my brother and I to visit our dad when he worked in GA...we stayed one night in a motel that...HONEST...was as scary as the Bates Motel from Psycho...after that, I'm a "reserve in advance" girl! But it's good memories and will make a lovely, exciting and unexpected scrapbook page! (see, I'm trying to get it!)....Lori

Man, you've been busy! No wonder you've had no time for blogging. Sounds like a lot of fun...except maybe the hotels situation. I hate all hotels, they are all gross no matter what you spend. There's no place like home! So...I am thinking there needs to be another scrap night soon...what do you think?! Maybe I should get rid of the fam and host...got to be cheap now that I'm going PT.

Omg, I wonder what that first place that you decided not to stay would've been like....maybe there would've been people already passed out on the bed when you walked in! Sheesh!

I do love your stories...Can't wait to hear more of your adventure! :)
