Where I've Been...

I'm sorry for not writing sooner. It has been a crazy couple of weeks for me. 2 weeks ago I was at some meetings in Cleveland. I was supposed to fly back that Friday, but got stuck at the airport for an extra night. Last week, I was at our National Meeting for work in Palm Springs, CA. It was absolutely beautiful! I was so happy to see sunshine and feel the warm ocean breeze. I just wish we would have had a little extra time to relax by the pool and soak in some sun. We did have an exciting evening at the San Andreas Fault Ranch which including shooting a BB gun, roping a cow, and a live country band.

The resort hotel we stayed at in Palm Springs was amazing. The only thing I didn't love - the food. In my family, we call it 'hoity-toity' food. We had almost all of our meals right at the hotel since that is where the conference was taking place. Our meals consisted of mostly things I couldn't pronounce. I was in line for lunch the first day thinking to myself, "Don't they just have a turkey sandwich?" I am not very adventurous when it comes to food and left most meals early to run to the hotel gift shop for a bag of pretzels and a granola bar to hold me over to the next exciting mystery meal. One day, they even served octopus and cantaloupe together and called it salad. Really? Finally dinner at the San Andreas Fault consisted of BBQ chicken, macaroni and cheese, cornbread, and strawberry shortcake for dessert. Not only was it food I actually recognized, it tasted wonderful.

I can appreciate those of you out there with more tolerant taste buds and an exotic appetite, but what is so wrong with a cheeseburger?
