We decided to travel to Chattanooga for a short little getaway for Spring Break. I lived here for one year of college, and did not enjoy the city. I do not enjoy this time either. However, it has been nice to just do something different. If I were at home, I would be doing responsible things and I don't want to do that. I am normally a very in control person. I don't really like a day if it is not planned out. I think the fact that my life is so much that way with teaching Kindergarten, I didn't want to do any planning. I just wanted to travel to Chattanooga and enjoy myself. WHAT WAS I THINKING?? We left Sunday right after church. I thought I knew where the hotel was. I figured if I didn't I would just look up directions on my phone. Wrong. There are approximately 30 Holiday Inn's in the Chattanooga area. When you don't know which one that you are staying at- you can't look up directions. So anyway, with me thinking I know where we are going, we drive all the way to Cleveland still looking for the exit I just knew we were staying at. As we got off the interstate in Cleveland, we were on fumes. We got gas. Pulled over in a McDonald's parking lot and used their Wi-Fi to attempt to find our hotel. I called my mom, but she gave me directions to the wrong Holiday Inn. Go figure. If you know my husband, imagine how mad he was at this point. We figure out where the hotel is, and go back to East Ridge. Now, East Ridge may be a nice place to live. Our hotel, compared to one on Trinity Lane. I was scared. We had already paid for the hotel but the sweet hubby knew I couldn't sleep peacefully there so we left. Hopefully we will get our money back. We then headed to Hixon to meet some friends. From Hixon, to Red Bank, to Soddy-Daisy, back to Chattanooga where we eventually found a nice hotel to stay the night. Today was better- we made a plan last night. Tomorrow we hope to enjoy the aquarium and then return home. Next time, I will print directions to everything- like I normally would.
