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!)
