Back from Lancaster

January 20th, 2008 at 05:36 pm

We had a very nice weekend, got to relax some, had some good meals, discovered a great hotel (it's not new, but we've never stayed there before) and bought some needed and not-so-needed stuff.

I did get 3 pairs of pants and one dress shirt, which were the main items on my shopping list. DD and DW each got some clothes. At the new Disney outlet, we picked up a few items for our collection and DD got some clothes. We also picked up a nice Royal Doulton Winnie the Pooh piece. They had a lot of their Disney items on sale for 70% off which made normally pricey items much more reasonable.

We used our Isaac's restaurant gift card toward lunch on Saturday. And my mom treated us to a couple of meals and paid for some of our purchases. She's been enjoying her much lower cost of living since selling her house and moving into an apartment. She also has been not feeling well lately and is finally doing better so was really glad to be able to make the trip with us. We all got along very well this weekend with only a couple of minor issues. DD (our almost teenager) behaved herself very well which made the weekend much nicer for everyone.

    Sounds like you had a great time. We were in Lancaster at Thanksgiving with my DIL's family. What a beautiful area and the people are so gracious there. Sorry to hear that your Mom hasn't felt well, but I'm glad that it didn't prevent you from being together.

    Thanks, Aleta. She's doing much better now. She had actually fallen on the cruise she took at the beginning of December and messed up her back. It has finally settled down and she is pretty much pain-free at this point. It really slowed her down for a while, which was tough for her because she has always been a very active woman. She fell while on a 9-day Caribbean cruise which should tell you something. Not too shabby for a 77-year-old woman.

    Did you go to Lancaster, PA? I lived there when I was Old Order Amish. I miss Lancaster. Miss the food, too.
