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!
