Details, Details, Details !!!

This One Is For All You Ski Enthusiasts!!

Hey Ya'll,

Well, I just spent most of the afternoon researching Hotels & room rates in Carson City, NV, & booking a U-Haul Trailer.  I think that I told you that my Step-Son moved back up to live with his mother, further North in California.  Well, his Bedroom Furniture is still here at our house, & he would like it taken up to him!!

Unfortunately, we have to drive up through the snow to get there!  My DH & I wanted to take it up when we drove up for my First Fill the weekend of Dec 28th.  Unfortunately, his Mom didn't have his room cleared out, so we we unable to take up the furniture that weekend!  And it had turned out to be a great weekend for towing something too.  Sigh!

And now we are having these snow storms hitting us almost back to back (El Nino).  We are hoping that the weather forecast for Saturday the 23rd will hold out, as it shows a clear day between storms!!  If this is the case, we will be driving up his Furniture towing a U-Haul trailer (attempt number 2).

Then we will drive back down into Carson City, NV (through Reno) & stay the night.  This way my DH can go to his Mother's house & help her with some of his Father's belongings, since we will be up in Reno for my 2nd Fill on Monday the 25th anyway.  Unfortunately, Reno's rates are really high for that Saturday so we refused to add the extra night to our already existing Reservation (at a REALLY good rate)!  Which is why I was researching Hotels in the Carson area!

So I found a nice place to stay at, called Courtyard By Marriott (it is practically brand new).  It is about $50 cheaper than the night would have cost us in Reno!!  And you get free Wi-Fi, etc.  Anyway, this way I can stay at the Hotel while my DH is going through his Dad's things.  We will already have had to vacate the room before he would be back to the Hotel, but I can stay down in the lobby area & read my book.  So, cross your fingers that this time we are actually successful in getting his furniture up to him!! 

Also, the earliest Appointment I could get my Mammogram/Ultrasound scheduled for, was February 12th.  So I will keep you posted on the results, etc. later.  Well, I better go for now, I am starving & need to eat something!  Till next time.

Aloha My Friends  :)

I stay at Courtyards a lot for work and normally like them. You may want to ask for a late checkout. They let me stay until 2pm when I asked. I am a Marriot's reward memeber (it is free) and they try to accomidate them when they can. I have even been given free room upgrades when I stayed on a slow night.

Yes, please keep us posted on the mammogram! We are all thinking of you in this regard.

I love the Marriot hotel. MOTH and I stay in one on Perth - it's a little swish and just beautiful. Have a lovely time!!

Thanks Cara! I will definitely keep you posted. The Courtyard isn't the full on swank of the Marriott's Huge Hotel/Resorts. But they are nice. The Courtyard is kind of like in between the really nice Hotels & a Motel. They usually attract the Corporate business.

Tracy! Thanks for the information! I will definitely ask for a late check out if possible. At least that way, maybe I won't have to go sit in the lobby for too long!

Thanks Shrinking Mommy!!

I'm sorry Vanessa!!

I did respond to your comment way earlier, but I think that I hit the Home button instead of the Post Comment button & I just realized that my response didn't take!!

Thank you for your concern & I will let everyone know something when I have news. And hopefully, we don't have any problems driving over the Sierra's again!!

Hiya Mom
(yep its me, still cant post in my normal name??)

Anyway, I'll go with you to the mamo on the 12th if you would like. We have a tax man appointment but I can get out of that...Mark needs to do some stuff by himself anyways! I don't really even need to be there. That is also Ellies actual birthday...but I don't think we are doing anything (besides revealing my hair-brained idea to shower her with tiny gifts for 40 days) so let me, Christa

p.s. how funny is this? my verification word was

I love your verification word!!

Are you sure? What about the kids? They aren't allowed out of the lobby area unless the testing is for them (at least they aren't allowed in the Mammogram/Ultrasound area). And my appointment time is 12:45. But if you would like to go with me, that would be great.

As for getting your name to show up, maybe we could play with it sometime here on my computer. I know a way you could do it, but I don't know if you want to do it that way. Anyway, let me know.

LOVE the ski cat!

We are in the middle of those same 3 snowstorms, I believe. My flight got canceled and my fill scheduled for this week is now next week. ;( Oh well!

I hope you made it through the snow okay!

Debi said...

Thanks Gen! Sorry you couldn't make it to yours! I was wondering if the storms would keep you from being able to make it there.

So far, it looks like we will be able to get there, just coming home could be a problem! I'll keep you posted.
