Morning Meanderings… Back To The IHOP



Good Morning.  Since Donna from Writer’s Side Up likes hat I am in IHOP every morning… thought I would take a picture.  🙂  Here are my discoveries about 4 am IHOP:


1.  A lady that works the early shift at IHOP, also works at the hotel I am staying at.  She is very nice.


2.  Some people… should not dress themselves.


3.  When a man walked in this morning wearing all camo from head to toe (and no not a hunter)…. I wanted to say, “Oh!  I almost didn’t see you there!”  But refrained as I thought he may not get it.  😉


4.  50’s music.  I did not know that was an IHOP thing.  I like it.  Wish I had packed my poodle skirt.


5.  I wish I had an IHOP attached to my house at home.  I would go there every morning… coffee and an English muffin.  Life would be so simple…


Getting ready for work this morning… or more honestly… I am ready for work just caffeinating myself for another 11 hour + day.  I am tired.  I have not had a day to myself since October 19th, before vacation with my son. That is a lot of days of being “ON”.   As an introvert that takes its tole.  I am spent. 🙂

  1. Ooh, it has been ages since I’ve been in an IHOP. When I was doing my social work job downtown, we often went there for group meetings, reserving one of the big rooms. I do love those waffles.

    And now I am thinking fondly of poodle skirts…LOL.

  2. Love the pic, Sheila 🙂 And I don’t think 50s music is an IHOP thing everywhere. I never noticed that to be a common aspect to the ones here (NJ). For me, when I go to IHOP, it’s my major breakfast binge which is why I avoid it! lol I want it ALL, so I get eggs, bacon, toast, home fries and pancakes. Yep! And soon you will be home, all cozy and hopefully more to yourself, Sheila 🙂 I do love the look of your early A.M. set up though. It looks warm and peaceful. Cracked up when I read # 2! lol

    1. I do like 4 a.m. IHOP. I am pretty much alone except for the occasional strangely dressed person who wanders in. Of course I am wearing work out capris and a t shirt so maybe they think I am the weird one… 😉

  3. Very funny ! What you said about some people should not dress themselves, I often say They look like they got dressed in the dark. Did you know the name IHOP is short for International House of Pancakes ? The first one I was ever in was when I was a toddler and it was in the Sun Ray Shopping Center in St. Paul. It was a such a treat to go there. I hope you can get some rest soon.

  4. We have an iHop not too far away and I’ve never been! (It opened less than a year ago.) I may have to check it out.

Hmmmm... what do you think?
