But having just come home from holidays from a week at the lake, I saw some pretty impractical things. Such as:
- High heels at the pool. As mentioned in previous posts, this is a family resort at a lake in Central Washington. It is not Vegas.
- Glitter and sequins on your pool cover up. See point #1. Unless you are a child, leave the sequins to the pool in Vegas.
- Driving to the store across from your hotel. Yes, it is hot, but not that hot! Driving across the street to Safeway is just bad. Walk!
- Sitting in the hot tub when it’s over 80 degrees outside. Year after year I have wondered why people do this. I have yet to get the courage up to ask them. Makes no sense to me.
- Kids in the hot tub by themselves. See point #4 and the fact that kids should be supervised around water! Hello Parents – where are you?!
- Mismatched bathing suits. This is a fashion trend I just don’t understand. Maybe it doesn’t fit this category exactly, but it annoys me. Orange floral tops paired with a black striped bottom and other weird combinations. Don’t they sell matching pieces for a reason ?
- Wearing puffy vests in the summer. Yes, we had a morning with some rain, but it was still very warm out. I don’t understand why these 2 dudes were wearing puffy vests.
- My husband’s work computer. Between the pool, beach, golf and lounging, did he seriously think he was going to have time to do work?
- Our family of 4 trying to sleep comfortably in a very very small hotel room. At night we had a king bed, pullout sofa and air mattress on the floor. It was an obstacle course every night and none of us slept well for 7 of the 8 nights we were there. I’ll discuss my kids’ sleeping habits in another post, but needless to say, we need more space!
- Lastly, going to Starbucks every day for coffee. We have a pretty good coffee maker at home and I have become somewhat reliant on my morning latte to start the day. The coffee in the hotel room doesn’t always work out for us. I actually considered bringing my coffee maker with us, but thought it was impractical 🙂
