I got y’alls emails and I may have over-promised. I was sure that I could work on some posts this week but that didn’t happen. I’m on the road through October 18. You may have to bear with me for a bit.
It’s been awhile since I’ve traveled this much. There’s a familiar hum to being on the road that I like. However, this week was tough. I had a bad schedule of sessions/meetings and have been working at least 7 to 7 everyday. Like on my feet, in heels, being charismatic while speaking to groups then get in my car and drive three hours kind of days. Y’all, I haven’t even looked at Pinterest.
So, I haven’t done any posts like promised. I’m not sure when I will. I’ll do my best to complete the ones we talked about and share some projects and such. Let’s start with what happened last night.
After a long day, I finally got to my hotel room. I had to pee so bad that I wondered if anyone had ever peed the parking lot because they couldn’t wait to get to their room after a long drive or flight. I rush to the room and turn on the tv. I begin to change into my work out clothes. I change in my pants and put on my socks and tennis shoes. I cannot find my shirt and sports bra. I realize I haven’t flipped the lock on my hotel room door. Hotel doors lock behind you but I usually flip the additional one. I turn to walk towards the door and it opens. A lady and two teenagers walk in.
The lady pushes the door open with her back while she drags her bag. I’m standing by the tv in my state of work out clothes on the bottom and work clothes on the top. Her son says “Ummmmm” which makes her flip around. She gasps and we all stare at each other. Finally, after what felt like minutes, I reach over and turn the tv down and say “Are y’all checking in?” I figured it was the polite thing to say.
The lady said “I’m sorry” several times and I told her that I was okay and was just watching some trashy reality tv. She laughed and the daughter finally stop staring with her mouth open to ask what I was watching. I answered the girl’s question. (I was watching Tamar and Vince which I’d never seen before but I liked watching Braxton Family Values when I was on the road in the past. So, I was quickly sucked in.) Then, I said “There’s only a king so I don’t believe we’ll all fit. However, there is a couch. I call dibs on the pillows.” The mother laughed but never said much more than “I’m sorry.” The daughter nodded and smiled while the son never said anything but cocked his head at me when I said the last thing. I called the front desk several times but they never answered. I didn’t care to go down there. Too tired.
I never ended up working out. I’m currently sitting on the bed in my weird outfit and I’m still watching Tamar and Vince. I need to go to bed.
I hope you have a good weekend. I’ll be working on this.
