Back to THOSE nights

April 11, 2011

Whew lordie - I know it's been a while, but I've been trying to adjust to this overnight schedule again!!  I had hoped I never had to go there for the rest of my life -- but here we are.  Back to the tough don't-call-me-past-2pm-life. 
Work has been great though.  SO much better than freelancing, it's amazing how a different position within the same company makes a huge difference.  Since I wrote on the weekends, I already knew the ropes now I'm just brushing up on some minor things and learning the way of the station on how to format things for the show.  It feels good to be back writing/producing again though!  And hello benefits.... (I really need to sign up for them ASAP though..)
So that's the work aspect.  Now let's backtrack to two weekends ago: my sister and brother-in-law came to visit!  Our FIRST visitors and I was such a blast.  I loved being a hostess: making dinner, making sure sheets and things were clean in preparation of what was sure to be an amazing weekend.  It did not disappoint.  I was training that week, and worked until 7pm so I was very antsy knowing they arrived around 5.  I got home Friday night and it was wonderful to see them.  We just relaxed, talked, ate dinner knowing the next day we'd be covering a lot of ground in DC.
Saturday we were up early and got back late.  I haven't walked that much in a long time and even though all our feet and backs hurt times a zillion, we had a blast.  We were at the National Mall, Arlington National Cemetery, Georgetown Cupcake, Capitol, the Tidal Basin to experience the Cherry Blossoms for the first time.. and let's not forget the Metro.  There were certainly a lot of people out - but it was such a great experience going all those places and every time I'm there, it's like the first time: it never gets old.  Sunday we slept in, relaxed, I made a fabulous lunch and early afternoon they were on their way home - - and I was on my way to bed to prepare for my first overnight of work.  What a great weekend!  I've posted some pictures below :)
