WHEW!! I am almost back to normal after a whirlwind tour of the Fairfax County Parkway with Twinnie! We had big fun and it was soo good to see her in person again.
Places we ate: Theismans, Spartans, Silver Diner, Mikes American Grill and India K’Raja
Stuff we made: Trivets @ Paint your own Pottery, a mess in the hotel room, cheesecake with splenda and no carbs and of course, tomato tartletts
People we saw:
Total miles driven: 700000 and most of them were spent not going over 40mph on I95. Consort said “Don’t drive to Richmond and back on a holiday weekend. You’re going to run into all that beach traffic coming home.” Did I listen? NO. Did I pay for not listening? YES.
Nights we got to sleep at a decent hour because we stopped yapping and went to bed: uh, none.
How badly I veered off my Atkins food plan: not terribly so (if you don’t count the pretzels in bed, 2 bites of flourless waffle cake with ice cream and a small piece of marble pound cake at Starbux –> I’m not counting them, why should you?)
Anyway, we really had a good time and I was totally wiped out after. Thank the universe the consort plays host well because I think I need more practice.
And good news! Twinnie is coming back to visit for the birthday week! This time we might veer off the FFX County Parkway and see some sights!
A good time was had by all (especially my cat Lucie who made a new friend!)
I enjoyed meeting Twinnie and of course seeing you again! Wish we had more time but I’m glad to know the Dynamic Duo will be back again in the not too distant future.
