This is an interesting time, to say the least. Hopefully, you and yours are all healthy, safe, and finding ways to keep yourselves busy and sane!

I thought maybe I’d share a couple of things that I’ve learned with you over the last couple of weeks if nothing else to provide myself with a helpful reminder when I need some perspective. 

  1. Making a list helps you feel like you’ve accomplished things, but it’s ok to take a day or two and not do much. On more than one day I’ve put “Watch 2 seasons of The Office” just so I could cross it off.
  2. Make sure you don’t drain the pool too quickly, you’ll get wet socks.
  3. Your sister-in-law’s boyfriend will be super bitter if you beat him too many times in cribbage.
  4. If you’re walking through the empty hotel and you see a little girl on a tricycle, you probably aren’t in a remake of The Shining, it’s just Sara’s daughter cruising around.
  5. Do not hire Brandon, our HR director, to do any tile work. He’s terrible
  6. Family is important (This shouldn't be a surprise). Taking care of the ones you live with and connecting with the ones you don't. 
  7. (Nerd Alert) Playing Dungeons & Dragons with your friends online isn't quite as good as in person, but it's still a good way to connect with your friends!

I’m sure none of these things are anything that you will probably be able to take and apply to your daily life, but number 3 has been especially important for me to remember. Especially if you beat him by 1 peg multiple times.

We’ve been taking this time at the resort to fix some of the little things, remodel some of the bigger things, paint the scuffed things, fix Brandon’s tile work, and do what we can to make sure that once it’s safe for us to reopen we are ready for you and your family! In the coming weeks, we’ll be sending out some deals and steals for hotel stays, play, and annual passes so keep an eye out for them. As a reminder, you can find the physical activity log for each month at this link, and we’ll honor all the completed forms when we’re able to re-open

Stay safe, enjoy the time with your family, and we’ll see you soon!
