Last Saturday I drove to Washington, DC all by myself!!! Packed lots of healthy snacks, had teaching tapes and music tapes (old car that doesn't play CD's - but is all paid for!)and I started my journey. I had such a good time driving along - my Mom and sister had made a sandwich for me and I stopped at a rest area to eat it and drink my Double Shot Starbucks so I wouldn't be in danger of getting sleepy - and drove into DC in a rainstorm.
I had a problem with the condensation leaking into the passenger side of my car but didn't think it would get too bad - but as I arrived in DC I looked down and realized that I had a 2 in. deep sloshing pond on that side of the car! I did have a roll of Bounty paper towels with me and I began tearing them off the roll and balling them up and throwing them in the water and they really worked!!! Except as I was doing that I missed a turn and ended up having my son-in-law giving me directions to go pick up my daughter, April (check out her blog for the fantastic photos of the Shrine we visited) - and he took me right into DuPont Circle where there was a very unusual parade ending right in that spot!!!
Finally got settled and had a wonderful week going to the zoo, spending lots of time with my grandson, going on a fantastic Duck Tour of DC that was great, going out to lunch, going with my daughters to a Mom's group and a dance lesson with April and went out after that in DC - wahoo!!!!
My drive back was totally uneventful as my son-in-law had fixed the AC problem! Got home on Sat. and my daughter from Pa. is here visiting with her two children and a German Shepherd and then got to work and had to participate in moving our team from one area of our building to another and I am still in the midst of all that mess!!!
And that's where I am!!!
