Been A Long Time

It's been a long time since I was able to sit down and let you know what's been happening around here.

If any of you have done any research on what the life of an innkeeper is really like, you know that it's very demanding of your time and energy. Add on to that, the responsibility of an aging parent and you can understand why I haven't posted here for a while. Many of our guests here at Sandlake Country Inn have shared with me their own personal stories when they were faced with the same stresses and I take comfort knowing that I'm not alone.

Now, it's not all been stressful lately! Ron and I took our much needed relaxing vacation the beginning of May. After a long couple of flights to get to Miami, Fl, we stayed overnight then flew the next day to the Dominican Republic. We stayed at a wonderful all inclusive resort called Majestic Elegance. This time it was our turn to be pampered! In my next post, I'll post some photos so you can see how beautiful it was. I have to find my camera and download all those pictures! We were there for 10 nights and did nothing but relax. I finally caught up on reading some books, taking a nap and enjoyed doing absolutely nothing. Now we're ready to give our full efforts to all of our wonderful guests and it's looking to be another very busy summer.

I want to thank K.C. and her husband Kirk who were the innsitters that took care of the inn in our absence. They did a wonderful job and we have received nice comments from our guests on their behalf. Believe me, it's not easy to just walk into someone else's B&B and run it seamlessly.
