Well, camping was a bust this weekend.  Thursday night we made the decision to not go camping because of the rain forecast.  There is nothing worse than being cold, wet, and without the ability to make a campfire.  We ended up going to Wisconsin Dells, which is the “waterpark capitol” of the US.  While the waterparks are closed, the casino wasn’t.  We had plenty of fun and stayed overnight at a Holiday Inn Express.

I was pleased to find the room being very clean and none of that “was once a smoking room but now isn’t” smell.  The beds were clean, soft, and not full of stinky detergents.  I’m not THAT sensitive to perfumes and smells but sometimes I get whacked upside the head with things like cleaners, gasoline vapors, and perfume.  I don’t have to ask for a scent-free room but it was nice not having to!!

The casino was fun, smokey, but still fun.  We play the “cheap” slots and had a good time.  Ended up ordering take-out to the room and watched the Weather Channel all night.  Weather geeks at heart and the hurricane Ike was more entertaining than I thought it would be.  Strange how we’re getting rain from the remnants of Ike.

This Friday I have a certification exam for work, Saturday is a 5km walk for Milwaukee Children’s Hospital, and then Saturday night Tazz’s family is coming up to my parents’ place for dinner.  Busy week coming up.  Cheers!
