We’re in a January state of mind…

Confessions of an Innkeeper: 

My name is Michelle and I don’t make “resolutions.”  I prefer to set intentions – not just for the new year, but life in general.  So, each year, I think about who I intend to be as a person.  Intending to do good things seems to be less of a rigid rule and more of a purpose for the next phase of me.  Doors open, as do all the possibilities for the next chapter, and I like walking through open doors.  In 2020, I intend to travel more frequently to local destinations, sightseeing in my own neighborhood.  I also pick a word of the year for fun.  Last year was journey and I’m still deciding for this year but I’ve narrowed it down to My Top Two.  What’s something you intend to do or be this year?

Quote: “What the new year brings to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the new year.”
Vern McLellan

Fun fact:  

January is named after Janus, the god of beginnings and transitions in Roman mythology.  While it is on average the coldest month of the year in the Northern hemisphere, it is also the warmest month of the year in the Southern hemisphere.  Does that mean that people in the Southern hemisphere are seeing sweaters at their local department store in the same way the bathing suits are on sale now in Maryland?  Here at IBB we spend the winter months practicing our ninja skills with the thermostat – someone turns it up, someone turns it down – it’s like war of the roses.  There’s no clear winner – yet – as the battle wages on.

Happy Holidays!

Confessions of an Innkeeper: 

My name is Michelle and I am not an organized or well-prepared holiday shopper.  I try to be.  Every year, I convince myself I’ll not only buy Christmas cards, but I’ll actually mail them.  Get cute little gift tags and neatly address each gift.  Make my lists, do my shopping, and have everything tidily wrapped under the tree – a tree that will go up the day after Thanksgiving.  Yet somehow, every year, I find myself standing in line at Walmart on Christmas Eve with a headache, sore feet, and a sense of exhausted desperation.  However, I still completely and utterly love Christmas morning. Every year.

Quote: “Christmas isn’t just a day, it’s a frame of mind.”
Valentine Davies

Fun fact:  

Head Housekeeper at IBB Kelsi loves to play Kenny G’s “The Classic Christmas Album” over and over.  And over.  Starting in October.  Every day.  Until others on the staff (who shall remain nameless) want to put it through the wood-chipper and laugh evilly as the shattered pieces fly.  Not because we hate Christmas music but because there should always be boundaries in the workplace.  This year, I’m putting a Joe Diffie “Mr. Christmas” CD in the Kenny G case so that Kelsi can learn to sing “Leroy the Redneck Reindeer.”

November Already?

Confessions of an Innkeeper: 

My name is Michelle and I love pie.  Apple pie, chocolate pie, peanut butter pie, butter beer pie – the options are endless. November is officially the best pie month of the year, when no one considers multiple pieces of multiple varieties of pie to be a bad thing.  Elastic waistbands and cozy hoodies allow you the extra room to eat pie with abandon and it’s a beautiful thing.  Until January, when the world scrambles into resolution and get healthy mode and your biggest regret becomes the bad life choices you made when celebrating November Pie.

Quote: “Cut my pie into 4 pieces, I don't think I could eat 8.”
Yogi Berra

Fun fact:  

November 22, 1980 provided the long-awaited answer to one of life’s crucial questions; “Who shot J.R.?”  That date will forever remind me of the Thanksgiving that my Grandma came to visit and insisted on dinner in front of the tv with complete and utter silence in the house.  I didn’t understand the urgency then, but having now lived through many season finale cliffhangers, I totally get it. IBB staff often debates important plot topics of our favorite shows while we work our way through daily housekeeping.

It’s October!

Confessions of an Innkeeper: 

My name is Michelle and I do not actually enjoy doing laundry.  Let me amend that statement – I enjoy folding warm laundry, freshly pulled from the dryer.  I can take or leave the washing/drying cycle.  But the putting away process is a chore I will procrastinate until the end of time.  Or until I run out of clean socks.  Chances are if I don’t put it away the minute it’s folded, I will simply live out of the laundry basket until it’s time to wash it all again.   IBB staff puts away approximately 9,000 loads of laundry a week, but luckily, it’s all easy stacks of towels and sheets.  I can handle that job.  Welcome to our corner of the world.

Quote: “I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
L. M. Montgomery

Fun fact:  

There are a set of 3 trees that line up behind the back balcony of IBB.  For about 15 minutes each Fall, they are in their full glory, completely covered in gorgeous leaves – one red, one yellow, one orange.  It is a sight to behold.  Every single autumn I set a goal to take the perfect photo of all 3 trees.  And every single autumn, I miss it because a sturdy wind blows half the leaves off each tree immediately after all the leaves finally turn.  This year is my year!
