We had an eventful few days.  My family traveled to the happenin’ metropolis of Boise, Idaho for my husband’s 20th high school reunion.  I even got a very discounted rate at a nice hotel.  It was much fancier than the Motel 6-like hotel we usually end up at.

The festivities were, as you would expect, immensely exciting.

BUT, I don’t have time for that now.  I have something far more important to discuss.

I need to make:

My Official Apology to the Hotel Staff
and a Few Other Randomly Impacted People

First, I’m truly sorry…for the teeth marks on the Do Not Disturb sign.  It was just too enticing.

Also, really sorry…despite your efforts to be green as you stated in numerous signs all over my hotel room, my one-year-old, Dax, had different plans.   He had this uncontrollable urge to keep turning on the bathtub water.

And, due to the lack of a bathroom door lock, the water pretty much flowed…the entire trip!
Extra sorry…I exaggerated a little in the previous apology.  Dax wasn’t playing with the tub faucet the entire trip.  He took a few breaks to press buttons on the phone! 
A big apology to the front desk who received a call from my button-happy dude.   It took me a good twenty minutes to figure out I could just disconnect the darn thing! 
I’m so sorry…we abused our thermostat privileges. 
 Up and down.  Up and down.  It was a constant battle between my husband and myself.  Luckily, we had some cozy nights, as my side of the bed was closest to the controls.  Not that I planned for that to happen.

I apologize…for the footprints on the bedding.  I’m sure they’ll wash out.   

My deepest regrets…maybe the air vent was broken before we arrived, but it doesn’t stay shut anymore.

Big mistake…graham crackers.

Sincerely sorry…this one is for our hotel room neighbors.   Our seven-year-old daughter, Dani, decided to start her career as a pop singer early Sunday morning.   
 Thankfully,  the hotel did provide us with one secret weapon that abruptly ended her singing practice. The Disney Channel.  More specifically Phineas and Ferb.  She quickly morphed into a quiet vegetative state.
And as an extra big thank you to the hotel staff, I’ve accidentally kindly left you my very favorite pillow.  Please don’t throw it out cherish it forever.
Grumpy Grateful Mom Goal of the Day:  Be grateful we are home, where the neighbors are not so close and everything is already damaged.
