Ahhhh. Sweet, sweet vacation.
I spent a week in DC, and despite the highest of hopes, I actually saw very few people there - much of my time was spent vegging out with two of my closest friends or sleeping. (I think I've finally restored my sleep account after a few weeks of hell at the office before I left.) My apologies to those I wanted to see while I was there (if you're at FSI, you're on that list!) - next time, I'll make Arkansas the first leg of my journey, so I'll be rested and restless when I get to Washington!
I got in to Memphis yesterday afternoon after far too much time spent in O'Hare (next time, I should look at my schedule and realize that a five-hour layover is in store), and my parents took me for a late lunch at one of my favorite Memphis restaurants. Traditionally, we've always gone there to eat right after I fly in, so it was good to get my regular BBQ pizza and a Shiner Bock. After we came home, my mom and I spent the evening snuggling with our weenie dogs and watching Laugh-In reruns.
I have made zero plans for my time in Arkansas. My mom and I may go to the horse races, and then again we may not. I brought home a bunch of reading to do for work, and I may ignore it. I do have several things I want to write about for the blog, but then again, it may prove to be too taxing to think about complex things! I am on vacation, after all.
Ahhhhh. Sweet relaxation.
