We’re wrapping up our fifth week without a PAD and it’s still at the Embassy Suites.  We’re staying here for the weekend, although we do have a couple of big outtings planned.

I’ll leave ya hangin’…

Our week has been pretty uneventful.  We got in late Monday night and it has taken the whole week to get back into the swing of NOPAD living.  I haven’t really gone to the store yet, so we’ve been eating soup, take out chinese, and pizza this week.

I take the kid’s leftovers from breakfast (french toast, bacon, pancakes) and they are always excited to eat them later for lunch or dinner.  And I’m not just saying that.  It’s true!

We went to our library and made the amazing discovery that we could check out 100
BOOKS!!  When we moved to Pennsylvania, our biggest letdown was the library.  Especially since we had left an amazing one in Ohio.  So to find out that we could check out 100 (including movies and games at no extra charge) items was HUGE!!

I also got a frequent shoppers card at ShopRite and got my first haircut in New Jersey.

And I don’t look like Snooki.  (Couldn’t resist).

We have been making friends with the hotel staff and today we got a behind the scenes tour of the Embassy Suites.  The kids wrote out five questions each to ask Paul, Manager of Sales.

Their questions ranged from recycling to laundry to how much coffee is served daily (almost 50 gallons!). 

We also toured the hotel kitchen where we met Chef Joe.  He told us about food prep and serving.  Sarah even got her picture made with him and it was posted on the Facebook page for the hotel.  We got to see the offices and where all the laundry is done.  I couldn’t help but be a little bit jealous of those big washers and dryers.

The staff has been so kind to us and we have really enjoyed getting to know them. 

This weekend will be a noisy one as there is a men’s Christian conference being hosted “Honor Bound” and a college basketball team is staying here.  We will try to stay out of their way.

Off to dinner then some pool time.

Still loving this adventure in our life.
