next time let's leave the kids with jo


We went to Salt Lake over the weekend for my work, and I always seem to forget how ridiculously difficult it is to stay in hotels with young kids. You either let the kids stay up and tell them to be quiet every 10 minutes for the sake of the other hotel guests OR everybody climbs into bed at 8 o'clock. Or you can do what Mike did -- turn off the lights and lock yourself in the bathroom for 2 hours, just hoping the kids will fall asleep. That sounds fun, doesn't it?

Exactly... this post was a time machine that took me back to 1989 and a Utah Press Association conference, when you were 5 years old and it was lights out by 8 or 9, and like Mike I took refuge in the bathroom with all the extra pillows and a BOOK. Amazing what you can make do with if you need a sanity break. :)

I was never so happy to have taken a book while traveling in my life. :)
