out and about…again…

I’m sitting in our hotel room at the Gaylord Nation Hotel & Convention Center.  I can’t believe I’m not at home.  It’s been a crazy summer.  Gone for a month in Michigan, home a week and then here. The time in Michigan was precious, I wouldn’t give up that time with my dad for anything.

It’s actually nice to be out and about with Jerry.  I really missed him this summer.  Even sitting and watching TV with him is SO much better than watching it alone.

We arrived in the DC area on Tuesday.  We won’t have much time to be tourists.  We did walk around the National Harbor on Tuesday.  It’s a nice area.  Much nicer than the Landings in Jacksonville.  It’s been over 15 years since I’ve been to the Inner Harbor Baltimore so I can’t really compare that anymore.  Although the Inner Harbor memories still outshine The Landings.  Jacksonville really needs to work on that and make it a destination spot.

Yesterday, Jerry’s company had a golf outing.  Jerry takes pictures for his companies events and he needed a driver so he could hop out and snap some pictures out on the course.  I volunteered 🙂  Little did I know that it would be the rainiest day of the week (so far).  It was still fun and Jerry and I laughed through the wind and rain.  I will note that sitting around in wet pants for the luncheon and awards wasn’t very comfortable but at least it was a shared misery with the 70+ golfers.

I’m on my own today.  I plan on doing absolutely nothing except enjoying the resort.  My knee is getting better but it could probably use more rest.  I want to be ready for next week when I go back to work.
