FEBRUARY 3, 2014 (Monday)

 

Woke up to partial sunshine, just a little bit overcast. Still a little bummed about the game yesterday. Was hoping for a better match up, not a slaughter.

We lazed around this morning. Around 12:45 PM we left for our Festiva Resorts presentation. We met a nice young man named Jason (from Alaska). He hadn’t been doing this very long. It was no pressure and pretty informative. The travel club portion of the presentation was the most interesting and useful to us.  We had never heard of RTX before. The presentation was about three hours,  and got to tour one of their newer units. Quite lovely. Bottom line, they wanted us to buy it now, today only. We hate that. We like to do our research. Anyway, we left around 4:00 PM. They gave us $75.00 and a week at RTX (for $117.00 exchange fee).

Not far away.

After our timeshare presentation, we went to Walmart. Lexi wanted to make spaghetti for dinner – so we got the ingredients for that. She also bought a new tongue ring as she had just broken hers and we refuse to pay for another one.

After I took this a lady asked, "Should we smile?"  I said, "Yes."

We got back “home” and Lexi made the most delicious spaghetti dinner and veggies. We are full and satisfied.

That was our day. Hope yours was great!
