Park City Fun

Thanks to Uncle Andy, we scored an awesome room/suite at the Hyatt Escala Lodge in Park City. We/Jenny had originally planned on going to St. George for the last weekend  getaway before my every weekend work schedule began. However, Marty had a major client come out of the woodwork one week prior to the scheduled vacay. He busted his rump for this client, and wouldn't be able to leave for the vacation until Friday afternoon. I needed to be home Sunday evening for a CPR class Monday morning, not to mention Jacob needing to get back to school Monday. 

Marty came up with the Park City idea at the 11th hour. I was quite impressed. Marty doesn't like spending money on hotels within the state of Utah. Why pay for a bed when we have several at home?

We had to convince Jacob that Park City would be as much fun. After a few minutes of discussion and persuasion, he was all game. Ben just likes going anywhere. 

Our suite had 2 bedrooms, a family room, a full kitchen, a kitchenette, a w/d, 2 bathrooms, 2 fireplaces, and 3 flat screen TVs. There was a heated outdoor pool and 2 hot tubs. The ski lifts (which we did not use) were right outside the front door. The fire pit (which we did use) was right next to the ski lifts. Much food and fun was had by all. It's not hard entertaining a six and a three year old; they were just happy to swim and splash in the hot tub. Fine with me. Marty enjoyed catching up on his TLC shows "48 Hours." Here are some pictures (a lot) of the room and my wonderful family. I sure do love my boys!

From expert to novice

I left my 14 year area of NICU to work labor & Delivery. I need prayers to give me peace. I'm not too picky, just panicky.

Two Steps Forward...One Step Back

Marty here.  Ever feel this way?  Today it's been a total merry-go-round.  One of our oldest clients (20 years) told us last week that their company had been sold to a huge internationally recognized company.  We were sad to hear this news, but also glad that we had been asked by the new owners to create a new multi-page brochure and revise all other sales literature and print everything in HUGE quantities.  Two steps forward...

Then today another project we have been working on (another client altogether) was practically ripped out of our hands.  Challenging as we have invested huge in this project to date, and it feels as though it's slipping away.  One step back...

Just call me "Debbie Downer" today.  Too much running and my emotional stores have been drained...
