Why the Ritz Carlton won't get 5 stars from me!

Day 4 of our vacation ...

I did OK skiing yesterday. Got off the bunny hill, took a very serious fall (my classmates said I looked like the famous TV commercial "The ABC Wide World of Sports" when that skier wiped out. All I can say is THANK GOD I was wearing my helmet (because I heard it cling, cling cling 3x as my ski's went flying off and I tumbled downhill out-of-control. I feel like a Mack Truck hit me.

I was exhausted but we still had to drive to our new destination. When I finally came back from dinner and crawled into bed, I was rudely and violently awoken at 4:20 A.M. Apparently, the previous guest staying in our room had re-set the alarm. I thought it was a fire drill (we obviously never set it) and now I can't go back to sleep. By the time we figured out how to shut off the damn thing ... I'm wide awake.

Wouldn't you think that for the kind of money we are paying at the Ritz Carlton, that housekeeping would check these things? Maybe my expectations are too high (otherwise, the resort is AWESOME) but still ... I'm wide awake and blogging at some ridiculous hour.

I'm finished with skiing. I'm still alive and in one piece (although some really nice anesthesiologist looked at my hand and thinks it might be a hairline fracture.) Today ... it's the spa and shopping for me!
