Whirlwind Weekend

OK, I admit it...I've been a bad blogger for the past month.  I've probably lost the few readers I had as a result.  :(

But cleaning out closets and cabinets and underneath beds, discarding unwanted and unused items, and moving just didn't seem very blog worthy.

Neither did giving EOGs, EOG make-ups, and EOG retests.

Or being sick.

But let me tell you about the whirlwind of a weekend we just had.  My head is still spinning!

The itinerary was something like this:

5:15 p.m.  depart from work and drive half way to Memphis
11:00 p.m. arrive at halfway point and check into hotel; sleep

9:00 a.m.  depart hotel to drive the second half of the drive to Memphis
11:30 a.m.  stop at favorite grocery store in Nashville for lunches (and doughnuts)
2:30 p.m.  arrive in Memphis, realize you are not allowed at your mom's house yet because she is having a party during her 50th high school reunion weekend, and decide to play tourist since this is Brian's first time in Memphis
2:30-5:00 p.m.  Visit the Peabody to see the ducks, wander up and down Beale Street, walk past the Rondezvous restaurant
5:00 p.m.  arrive at Mom's house (since the party is over), visit for a little while before she and Dad leave for the reunion bash
6:00-10:00 p.m.  Visit with cousins, one of whom is doing our wedding in December, and go eat Memphis BBQ at Corky's
10:00-11:00 p.m. Visit with Mom and Dad, say good bye to Gloria for a week, leave for hotel
11:30 p.m  Crash in bed to sleep before a long drive home on Sunday

10:00 a.m.  (11:00 a.m. at home)  Depart from hotel
10:30 p.m. arrive home after 11.5 hours of driving

So, to recap:
We were gone for approximately 53 hours.
Almost 24 of those hours were spent driving.
14-15 of those hours were spent sleeping.
8 hours were for sightseeing and visiting with family.
I can't account for the other 6 hours, so don't ask!

The only part I'm confused about is how you walked past Rendezvous and then ate at Corkys? I've got nothing against Corkys but we are such Rendezvous fans we've had them sent freeze dried to our house for special occasions ;-)
