It’s gettin’ hot in here


June 20, 2011 by themommahen


The husband has a conference in Sunset Beach this week and the hatchlings and I tagged along. Very exciting, considering he actually has a conference in a decent location (my family used to come here every summer and I haven't been back since I was a child) and we can actually go.

Only small snag is that while NC is experiencing record-breaking heat, our room a/c quit working. And, in order to fix it, maintenance needed to get into the room next door, but no one answered repeated calls and knocks last night. So we sucked it up, got a fan (and a comp) from the front desk, and made it through the night at a steady (and muggy) 80 degrees.

This morning maintenance came back and after no answer again, let themselves into the room despite the privacy sign on the door. My hero.

Next door the TV was on, lights on, no one home, bed didn't look slept in. Looks like someone at the conference never made it home last night.

Hopefully we'll have cool air soon. I'm betting that either way, we're better off than the hungover sap somewhere in the convention center today.

Walking in the snow So beautiful. But please let the power stay on. Morning chicken duty is always more fun when snow is falling. A little cold today. #brrr #beach I'm gonna Momma Hen you all for a minute with a gentle reminder that giving kids access to social media accounts -- whether theirs or yours, whether they're "old enough" or not -- without any guidance or oversight is not so different from letting your kid drive a car on the highway without any training. The damage may not be physical, and with a little luck there wont be any damage at all, but...images seen cannot be unseen, words said cannot be unsaid, things heard cannot be unheard. Birthdays are meant to be celebrated, even when it's back to school after an extended break. #12
