I am trying out a new hotel in Houston tonight. It is not my favorite. The hallway smells like an old dorm, and although the rooms are fairly big and actually suites, they are well past their prime. I am not a hotel snob by any stretch, but there are a couple other places to pick from which are much nicer at the same price. I wish I could just skip the hotel stays all together. Seems to me that a commutable schedule would not be that difficult to do but it eludes our crew planning staff mostly.
This week I ended up with a jumble of junk because of a couple of trip trades I had to do so I could go to Washington D.C. I have been appointed as a representative for our union and had to go learn something about how to do my job. Very important to attend, but unfortunately puts a cramp in my style. Will have 1 day off this week and 1 day off next week. Would be less of a big deal if I was based at home, which is a big priority for the future.
On a side note, I think the earth's axis has tilted a bit. For the first time ever the guy I voted for is in the White House, and the Arizona Cardinals are going to the Super Bowl. Crazy.
