I am sitting on the floor basically in a closet.
An ironing board is to my left and the hotel
room door is to my right.
|I DID NOT request this photo....but here it is.|
You know that saying about getting what you
pay for? Well, it is true. When I got four nights
for four people for 273.00 I should have known
it would have its drawbacks.
The beds were comfy!
I do not lie.
So....for that I am thankful.
However, I have never, ever, ever
seen a hotel....name brand......run in
such an unprofessional manner.
More on this subject later.....maybe.
I am taking photos to send to headquarters.
But I must be very nice right now since we
have three more nights here and I wish to
live. Suffice it to say that all of the problems
could be solved with a changing of the management!
Our drive to Kentucky was beautiful.
I admit that I kept nodding off but was too
nervous to really sleep because I always
think it is my job to keep Warren awake.
He would probably be fine...but you just never know.
We got to the Ichthus Festival site last evening
and were initally very impressed. The campsites
were neat and orderly and the staff courteous
and helpful. We found the line for the will call window
to pick up the kids wristbands so that they could go
in....it was about 9:30pm. Remedy Drive was to play
at 10:45pm. Tired as they were Mikey and Chelsea
were eager to check out the site. Well, we stood in
the line for a bit and then a woman came out and announced
that they were closed, we would have to come back tomorrow.
Understand that our paper said this window would be open
until 10pm. I had checked. And rechecked.
No way were we driving all the way out there to
not be able to get them in.
We headed back to the car.
Part of me said, "Good, we can get to bed."
Part of me said, "NO WAY!" They paid for
these tickets and they are getting in!!"
That last part of me won.
I called out to the woman checking for wristbands
and showed her our paper. She was furious due to
other changes the organization had made that impacted
her....a volunteer....so she marched over to the will
call window and then came back to get us.
We got our wrist bands.
Good thing, too.
Once Warren saw what it said on the paper
he wasn't leaving!!
They got off easy....lol.
The kids had a great time for a couple of hours
and then we returned for them.
Security looks to be great there.
Local police and volunteer security are evident
on site and it is clean and orderly.
So....now that we have gotten all of the paperwork
out of the way it should be good.
We are on our way this morning to meet my dear blog
friend, Tracy, at Back to Basics. This woman is such a
hard worker and I know I am pulling her away from some
very important canning, freezing or something equally
industrious. But I am SOOO excited to meet her in person.
She and Abigail are meeting us for an early lunch
at an Olive Garden. By the way, I made the copycat
recipe for the Zuppa Tuscana this past week and it
turned out great. Want to try it? Here is the link.
I'll finish with the reason that I am on the floor with
my laptop. The issue is outlets. There aren't many
and there is NO chair. Of the outlets that we did find
two are hanging out of the wall....no joke!
