Note to my future self: travel.

It's fun.

Before I drop off into la-la land I need to remind myself that despite negative things that can and will happen on trips like this, they are all worthwhile. I'm currently a zombie because I didn't sleep too much, have been awake since about 2:30 a.m., left SHU at 4 a.m., drove 7 hours to D.C., got lost in a caravan and made up our own tour of the city, and have carried two tote bags of free stuff through metros and rainy city streets, all on one meal all day along with one powerful latte. I can't say I've felt this close to utter exhaustion in my life.

It's been an incredible day, though. Tomorrow has to be better, since I'll have slept more than two or three hours. That's already a leg-up on today. And even though today, in retrospect, has been a blast, it wasn't feeling that way while I was living in the moment...

Meanwhile, folks, just know that I am enjoying my inaugural visit to our national capital, and will most likely return with fists full of sugarpackets and a myriad of fun stories.

Yayyyyy travel!!! =D So glad you're having fun dear. Can't wait to hear all about it! Hang in there from exhaustion -- in my experience, it makes the next day all the sweeter, and usually is good for a funny story or two once you sort out the hazy bits ;)
Love you!
