How things change... vacation, to work really fast
I was hoping for a nice relaxing week this week. Then on Monday in class I got a call and was asked if I would go to California for some hotel conversions. I left Tuesday evening, got in to LAX late, swung by the parents house in Long Beach, then down to Irvine to the hotel I'm staying at. I spent the next 48 hours working, with a few hours of sleep here and there. I worked so much, drove so much, and was so busy that I ate two meals that whole time.
I'm in no way a little guy, so I like to eat, but as busy as I've been I just didn't have time, and actually I didn't miss it. I ended up getting 4 hotel conversions done. I was staying in Irvine, but 3 of the hotels were in Beverly Hills/LA, so driving up the 405 has been a lot of fun... NOT REALLY though. I wish I had brought my cameras with me, I left them in the hotel room, I saw an accident on the 405 yesterday morning in which a Saturn had wedged underneith a ford Ranger , raising the back of the ranger probably a good 8-10 feet in the air. It really didn't look to bad, the parts of the saturn I could see didn't even look damaged.
Wednesday night I was at the Regent Beverly Wilshire, wow... nice place! I got a tour around the place, even got to go into the Pretty Woman suite, if I had only brought my camera!
I'm back in Long Beach now, I have the weekend off so I'll be spending it with the family, then back to work on Sunday to convery a few more hotels in the Newport Beach area. Blog ya later!
