I normally like to write my posts in the morning about the previous day but here it is almost 9:00 p.m. It been a busy day.
Gary picked me up from work yesterday and we started on our journey. I couldn't believe the change in the weather. It was very chilly and I questioned my decision about packing mostly shorts. I guessed I'd have to make do or wear the same pair of jeans over and over. I always have a jacket with me ... so even though I had sleaveless tops, I'd be okay there. We're eventually going to be heading south so it should be a little warmer, but the weather is so unpredictable, so who knows.
We were going to break up the drive and spend the night in Washington, PA. I booked our room through Hot Wire and got a good deal. Our mystery hotel was the DoubleTree. We were fortunate that it had a restaurant and lounge because it was about 9:00 when we checked in and we hadn't had dinner yet. The restaurant was closed but they were still serving in the bar. I looked over the menu trying to calculate what the calories would be and what would be the best choice. It was a limited menu with mostly sandwiches and appetizers. I saw a flatbread pizza and thought that might work. When the server brought the food, I couldn't believe it ... that pizza could have fed a family of four. I was expecting something along the line of an individual pizza. I ate what I thought I could have ... okay I ate one more piece than that but I couldn't believe that I let her take 2/3's of the pizza away. I could have eaten more, it was cracker thin but I knew that I had to stop. I was hoping that Gary would eat some of it so it didn't seem to be a big waste, but he's trying to curb what he eats too. I couldn't believe earlier that when we stopped for gas and he went instead the convenience store that he didn't come out with a bag of cornies. I guess I'm getting to be a good example. So the pizza was taken away and I guess I can say better it go to waste than to my waist.
