It’s been a crazy month and the last two weeks were even crazier. I’ve officially moved out of my apartment in Rhode Island, left my old office, and I’m here in DC waiting for a new chapter to start.
In the meantime, I’m feeling like a flat blob due to nonstop going-away dinners with different people. I am terrified to see what the scale says; I’m probably the heaviest I’ve been in more than year. Lucky me, these pounds are here just in time for my trip to Hawaii in two weeks. Life fail.
On my drive down the mid-Atlantic, I made a detour through Pennsylvania because I wanted to see Amish folks. I thought about taking a tour or visiting a tourist attraction “museum” but they all sounded really stupid. So, I picked a couple of random places to stop and took sideroads to get there. Mission accomplished, I drove through and saw Amish people going about their daily business.
I also saw many horse-drawn buggies! I felt sorry for these people that they’re just trying to live their life, struggling against modernity, while jerk tourists (yes I include myself) are here inserting themselves in their lives and gawking at them.
I arrived in DC on Tuesday and am camped at a hotel until further notice. It’s been a week since the movers picked up my belongings and they haven’t been able to give me an exact day of when they’re going to deliver it all. All I have is a 10 day window, when I have to make myself available to be there when it’s delivered, even though I’ll only get 24 hours notice. I’m stressing out to the max, especially since I have to go to work on the 10th day. It’s killing me that I get all these days off of work and I can’t enjoy it because I’m stressing about setting up my new house and stalking the moving truck.
Until then, let me know if you have any ideas on things that I must do in DC and VA!
