Playing Tourist

So, no, I haven’t kept up with my 10 minutes of writing a day for the last couple weeks. Buuut, I have a good excuse, honest. My older sister came to visit me for 10 days and, for those of you who don’t think that is a good enough excuse, let me clarify. This was the first time:

  • She’s never visited me
  • We’ve haven’t had sister time in 14 years
  • She’s never gone on vacation
  • She’s never left her 6 children for longer than a few hours (as far as I know)
  • She’s never been to DC

We had such a fun, if very full 10 days. We went on the White House Garden Tour, went to brunch, explored a very cute downtown, spending the most time in an antique store, walked all over Arlington Cemetery, saw the Changing of the Guard as well as a wreath-changing ceremony (which included hearing a guard play Taps), toured the monuments, went to Georgetown cupcakes, bought lots of books at my favorite bookstore in Alexandria, took a boat to Mount Vernon, and I’m pretty sure explored a few other things too, but I lost track. And then, of course, prepping for and hosting Easter, and she left the following morning at 5:30 AM.

So, all in all, not much sleep, no time to write, but so much fun.

This week thus far has mostly been recovery and sleep, and I have a total of 2 more days before I have to leave for a work trip. But, now that I am done playing tourist, I am going to get back to writing now. And I am thinking it might be time to get back to exercising as well . . . it’s been awhile.
