I suppose it is only fair that as I sit here, bored as ever, everyone else should share in my misery. So everyone gets to read about my activities, or lack thereof.   I am not really miserable, actually.  This morning, I woke up early to feed Bogey, and discovered, that even though there are lots of channels, there is nothing to watch on TV.

I went ahead and downloaded a few episodes of Downton Abbey to keep my mind busy.  Otherwise, I probably would be out of this room and sleeping in my van.  Because as I look around, lots of questions naturally surface.  For instance, do you suppose the shower curtain in the bathroom ever gets washed?  Or the carpet...when does that get shampooed?  After every person that stays?  And how about the mattress cover under the sheets?  When does that get changed?  I've never been in the hotel business, so I honestly don't know the answers to these questions, but I do know there are cobwebs in the corners, and I personally had to kill a spider on my very own last night.  So I have to wonder about the cleanliness of the other stuff.

After Bogey finally woke up, we went shopping.  After walking around the stores for what seemed like a lifetime, (it had only been an hour...) I realized that I know nothing about fashion.  I still dress in the same style as I did  20 years ago.  I have no idea what the trends are, but from what I saw hanging on the racks, all I can say is UGLY!  I'll just have to stick with the ol' t-shirt and jeans/hoodie and sweats....

Bogey's favorite part of the adventure was riding in the shopping cart.  He felt quite empowered sitting up so high.  Every time I turned around, he had something knocked off the shelf, or a bunch of clothes heaped onto the floor that he had pulled from the hangers.  Not to mention, we had a trail of price tags behind us, because he would just grab onto them as we passed and hold on until they ripped from the clothing.  He then dropped it to the floor and took hold of the next one...

Clearly we need to get out more.

For now though, it is time to go running.  I hope I can remember my route around the hospital.  I was hoping for warmer weather to run in, but I guess it's better than traipsing through snow and ice.  Stay tuned for tomorrows activities, it's going to be really exciting!

This guy can't wait to get into the stroller...he loves it in there!

Totally agree about fashion these days. We do a fair bit of mall walking here, and there is almost nothing in the windows that I would even consider wearing. HIDEOUS!!!
