Wednesday Wonders

Well, we have had a blast for 2 days on our trip to Washington DC. Things we have seen or done include:

  • watching a black cow try to cross Interstate 95---road kill that could be a TBone all in one. LOL
  • finding a SUPER Target and getting lost in it for 3 hours
  • finding a Hobby Lobby and getting lost in it for 2 hours
  • had a repeat diagnostic mammogram to confirm an abnormal finding. The longest 24 hours or worry but all is benign. LIFE IS GOOD!
  • Saw about 40 signs that said "Washington"
  • stitched two rows of Quaker freebie from Needleprint blog in the dark but gave up on the bumpy roads.
  • had a yoga session last night
  • decided that a 36 inch flat screen in our bedroom is going to be a must-gift for Christmas
  • figured out about Fayetteville that I brought the wrong clothes for the weather
  • picked up a pair of yoga pants at Target
  • loved my hubbie and we laughed like we were on a Senior trip. FUN!
  • put a book on audio from my Kindle so we both could hear it through the car speakers. We read the whole book, published in November 2010, called No Comfort Zone. It was enlightening. That was the first time we listened to a whole book together like that.
  • watched Body guard have a spout with the bell boy while I was about to faint and finally just fell over the comfy soft heavenly bed and let them duke it out.
  • ate at two separate Cracker Barrels and having a barrel of fun in each---I dunked a honey mustard  for Tanya. I did. I really did. Just saying!
  • Decided I do not travel well because organization is a weakness for me. I take it all.
  • Ate at Pizza Hut in the Super Walmart in between picking out yoga pants, that I left.
  • found a jewelry pouch there to cover my small Vusion magnifier so it won't get scratched and the sweet boy gave it to me free.
  • Got on the elevator with room service and they had a tall pitcher of Ice Tea and obviously he didn't speak much English as I asked him randomly if it was sweet tea and he said " no sweet tea has "surga"
  • watched the lady at check in snicker to another person when I talked because she could tell I was Southern. I can't help it yal'll.
  • found out the new Tylenol we just got was recalled.
  • realized I  need a 12 step program for Target.
  • passed an Eifell Tower.
  • stopped at more rest stations than I ever thought possible.
Oh well, plans for tomorrow and also In Stitches to get some stash! Hope your week is just as happy!

On the road again.
