Well, I made it home yesterday (Monday) without any delays. Yeah!! Jeff and Ashlee were glad so glad to see me, they took me to lunch at my favorite Mexican restaurant. It was goood! DC does not have Mexican food like we have here in Oklahoma.

Nick arrived in Munich, Germany this morning, according to the email I received, and was ready to start some sightseeing. Can't wait to see pictures.

My last day in DC was Sunday, so we spent the morning cleaning and getting packed. In the afternoon we took the metro to the American Indian Museum.
We checked out some of the exhibits and then ate a late lunch at the cafeteria. They had several choices and I had pulled pork empanadas with rice and beans and Nick had a shank of meat that he said was boar. He likes to try new things. As a child, he was never a picky eater.

After we left there, we walked over to the Capitol Botanical Gardens and took a leisurely stroll thru the gardens. It was hot, but the gardens were not crowded and I saw a lot of interesting plants; some I recognized and some I had never heard of before. We had a great afternoon and made some good memories.

We rode the bus back to his apartment and I finished packing. It was a great 12 days and I enjoyed spending time with Nick. Have plans to head back at Thanksgiving.

Well, I am trying to get back in the groove. I had planned to go to work today, but Ashlee had car trouble. By the time Jeff got it fixed, it was lunchtime. We ate lunch and headed to the office. Since it was early afternoon, I decided I couldn't really start any work this late (lol) so I went home and vowed to try again tomorrow.

Wishing everyone a great week.
