I am impatiently sitting in the lobby of the hotel waiting for Blake to get finished with his class. It is just before 2pm because I was able to get extended check out until then. But his class is not due to be over until 4. I am hoping that the class will finish a bit earlier.
We had a pretty good trip but are ready to go home. We both miss our bed and our dog. I miss home cooked meals though I don’t miss cooking them. Eating out every meal gets old fast. I have tried to pick healthy options the best I can but that hasn’t been that easy. Keeping hydrated hasn’t been the easiest either. Our hotel room was hot even with the air conditioner on full blast.
We ended up not doing any sight seeing at all. We were going to go downtown last night but we just didn’t have the energy. We decided we will have to try to make a trip back when we can actually do more than drive around and just look at things. We ended up just going to some book stores after dinner and I am thankful we did. I managed to find 2 really good books about birthing that will help elevate some of my fears. They have also provided me with some entertainment today while having to sit in the lobby.
We did have one really nice evening out. We ate at The Cheesecake Factory and walked around the mall a bit. I have really been far to tired to do much. Walking around very long hasn’t been easy on me. I am having some pelvic pain due to the pregnancy that flares up when I just take a few steps. I look forward to going home and going to the chiropractor tomorrow.

We made it to Louisville. Not that we had to go far, it was only and hour and a half drive if that. Our bag with all of our toiletries in it did not make the trip though. In the hustle and bustle of trying to get everything together it was left behind. We had to load all of our stuff in our vehicle then transfer it all into the company vehicle we were riding in. We were so occupied with getting Chloe and all of her things as we were dropping her off at a friends house, that we left our bag in our car. What a bummer! We of course didn’t realize it until we got to the hotel. Thankfully we found a WalMart nearby so we could by everything we needed. 25 dollars later we can now shower and brush our teeth.
Our hotel is nice, nothing fancy but very clean and comfortable. I really wish that it had an indoor pool so that I could entertain myself that way while Blake is in his class. I am not used to having this much down time and just not sure what to do. At home I am constantly trying to get things in order for the baby and now I have 3 days to just relax. I got up early with Blake so that I could have breakfast with him, now it is only 9am and I have until 4pm before he is out of class… I saw a Half Price Books down the road last night. I think I will have Blake take me tonight to get a book to read. To bad the book store is not within walking distance because I could spend a good part of the day in there!
Tonight we are going to go out when Blake gets out of his class. We will probably go eat at The Cheesecake Factory. Tomorrow evening we will go down town and do some sight seeing. I brought my camera so I hope to get some neat pictures to blog about. Until then…
