The two hour ride there consisted of "hey mom, watch this Harlem Shake video!" I've seen almost the entire YouTube collection of them. Most are horrible. The only one worth of a good laugh is the one that the University of Georgia swim team did, where they put the entire table and chair set at the bottom of the pool
I was having some anxiety about being separated from my bike, so I packed it too. I had a 2 hour ride to get done on Sunday and there was no way I was going to do that on a spin bike. Why? Because half the fun of a two hour ride is playing pretend hill climbing with my gears!
We also played "gotcha". It's where you take someone's photo without them knowing. Maybe it's just the game that she and I play but I walked away the victor on Friday. She would also kill me if she knew I posted this. Too bad teenager. Too bad.
Once we got to the pool, it was time for me to go to work. Parents are trained monkeys as timers and back-up timers. Two hours of stopwatch fun and recording my findings onto a spreadsheet. Good thing I went to college.
My Sunday ride with the Sufferfest videos. My poor kid was subjected to crawling under the covers for two hours while the box fan went to work on high. I've had about three people ask me in a trivial manner "did you really pack your own box fan?" The answer is, yes. I packed my box fan. Dedication or crazy. It's one or the other.
So, I have a question....
When I travel for some things, I scour the internet to find hotels that have the best reviews for the cheapest price. When we go to Ashland I always put us up in the Days Inn. It's the nicest dump around. Does that make sense? My daughter just hates it. For me, it's fine and the tv works. Now, when we go on vacation, we stay at four and five star resorts. I just hate blowing money on a room that we're going to trash up for two nights?
What's your hotel policy?
Have you ever traveled with something bizarre like a box fan?
