Refreshed from a road trip | Weekly Snapshot

I'm getting an extremely late start to this post. After the long drive yesterday back home and then a late evening meetup with our neighbors, I was out of juice very fast and needed to crash. And what does Sunday morning mean after a busy week? Tis a day full of chores. Ugh.  Life We spent this past week in Boston with my brother-in-law and his wife. We all got the break we needed - we did some shopping, watched lots of TV, and enjoyed lots of family time. I started writing this post on our drive back but didn't get to schedule in advance. We opted to drive the 13-hour route so although it made for some very long days, it felt good to get out of the house and enjoy a road trip. The weather cooperated all the days in all the places we were in those days so that was a plus.  As always after a long vacation, we have come back to a lot to do. I have so much to catch up with and need to do some of that today as there's just as much to do on the work front from tomorrow.  Renovat

Dewy Ramblings: I'm back!

I'm back finally! I left on Friday evening, and reached back on Monday, early morning at 3 am. So as you can imagine, I'm still feeling sluggish after the very very hectic yet amazing weekend! I visited the Capitol Hill, the Washington monument, White House and the Smithsonian museums, and I loved all that history exuding out of the city. Did you know History was my favorite subject in high school? My friends and I walked a LOT! It was tiring, but I feel so elated now, I think we saw so much more that way. I'll write a more detailed weekend getaway post (hopefully with pictures) this Sunday, since right now, I would love to just do -nothing-!

I have a lot of posts to catch up with. I may take advantage of Google Reader's "Mark all as Read", but I would love to see how you all fared at the Bloggiesta - How did you do?

Also, what else did you do this weekend that I missed?

It's World Cup time when the World stops, lol, doesn't seem to affect the blogging world, hahahhaha

I am a France fan so less reading than usual here.

Glad you had a fun time away.
Welcome back! I'm glad you had a good time!

I hate to admit it, but I used Mark All As Read for the first time at the end of Bloggiesta. I had gotten so far behind, and I knew that 1000+ had to be over 2000, so I bit the bullet and did it. I felt a teensy bit of guilt, but mostly I felt relief to be starting fresh. I say go for it if you need to.
So glad you had a wonderful time in DC; it's such a great city! I am in London so blogging is going to be a bit difficult, but I am going to try.

Marce, isn't that so? I would expect people to drop everything and watch the WC! But no, blogging goes on, sigh... I support France too, btw! :)

Jen, I feel guilty about using the Mark All As Read. But if I feel overwhelmed, I am all for it! Hopefully, I plan to spend all day today weeding through the posts!

Helen, Have a great time in London. It is one of my definitely-should-see places!!

Totally hit "Mark all as read!" That hulking reader is so stressful and you know we'll all have posts up again in a day or two!

Juju, it was so awesome to walk through the various sights in DC! Loved it!

Lisa, I have finally come around to realizing that. I think I will do that after all!
