My Hotel Money's Worth

As I haven't been traveling as much this year as last, it's unlikely that I'll be able to retain Platinum status in Priority Club (I might hold Gold), so all I can do is enjoy the upgrades this year. The Central Point property upgraded me to a mini-suite, so I spread out a bit. For dinner, I went over to the grocery store on the other side of the freeway, brought back some chicken and a microwave side dish, and ate dinner while watching tennis on ESPN2. After dinner, as twilight faded away, I went out back of the hotel to walk the northern half-mile of the Bear Creek Trail -- the hotel is near the northern end at milepost 25.5 on the trail. Circling back to the hotel, I put in even more steps on the treadmill, then changed into my swimsuit and sat in the hot tub for 15 minutes and let the jets pound away at my sore muscles. (I haven't been working as hard as poor Lisa climbing all over That Darn Roof, but I still have been working.)

For the first time in quite a while, I feel very much at ease, and I expect to sleep well tonight. Pity I still have over 500 miles to drive tomorrow.
