Last week I traveled to Charlotte, NC for a conference (a bunch of people who do what I do talking about why we love what we do and how to do what we do better...it was great!).
So here's a bit of miscellany from Charlotte.
1. I don't much like taxi rides. I get very anxious having someone I don't know drive me around in a place I do not know either. Both taxi drivers we had we very, very fast drivers, weaving in and out of traffic. There was a point where I had to just close my eyes and clutch my purse until I was safely at the airport.
2. I also don't much like revolving doors. Actually, I have a complete irrational fear of revolving doors. Of course every hotel and restaurant that we went to in the city had one and I had to momentarily leave my group in search of a regular, old, non-revolving kind of door. What if it gets stuck? What if it runs me over? What if I can't seem to jump out when it's time? Irrational yes. But I'm not taking any chances.
3. My hotel room was beautiful!
I learned, however, that if we ever had a cleaning service (which we wouldn't) I would be the lady who had to clean the house before they came to clean my house. The first day as I was leaving I realized my room was a mess (it never ceases to amaze me how quickly I can mess up a place) and that I should just pick up a bit before the maid came in. Well I ended up cleaning the whole room. I didn't think they needed to waste their time on my room so I put the little "hey I'm busy in here, don't come in sign" before leaving. I just ended up leaving the sign on the door. I didn't want the cleaning staff to see what a messy guest I am!
4. I left my hubby at home and had the whole room to myself. It was sad. I slept on one side of the bed out of habit.
5. Although I'm not much of a city gal, Charlotte was sure a pretty place. Great for visiting (and eating!).
It's not too late to enter my blog anniversary party giveaways!
