There are no pictures yet, but I wanted to let you know that after a later than hoped for start, we arrived in Baltimore around 11:30 p.m. safe and sound. OK, maybe not sound, but safe! I think, however, that this was a blessing in the long run because traffic was great, it never rained on us, and as we thought we couldn't possibly be in the truck another minute, we drove by the Washington Monument and Captiol Building illuminated by spotlights. I had actually walked all around that area with Tiffany in the spring when we went to a Washington Nationals baseball game, so it was fun to see it from a different perspective.
Honesty compels me to tell you that as we were following our handy dandy GPS and the monotone voiced directions approaching our apartment building, I had a moment of panic as I realized that I had no idea where I was, how to get anywhere, and I wondered if I ever would. Then I realized I was exhausted and the most immediate need was to get the truck unloaded and begin anew tomorrow. We did end up walking a few minutes around the area and it's very nice with a lot of older historic buildings that have been restored for businesses and residences. I think daylight will help my adventurous spirit revive as well.
I think I forgot to mention that Michael is with us because he has reading week this week in school, so he took a train to Baltimore on Monday to hang out with his dad some, stayed alone for a couple of days to get some work done, and now gets to be with his favorite mom. :) I actually haven't gotten to see him in a while so it will be fun to catch up with him a bit.
So for now, dear friends, I bid you goodnight. Thank you all for your prayers; they were answered most favorably and we are grateful for the uneventful drive we had.
I don't think the forecast is very cooperative for sight-seeing, but we're going to give it our best shot, so I should have some pictures for you tomorrow. For now, I leave you with a parting question; how many GPS's have ended up tossed out the window to silence the very annoying voice as it's recalculating for the hundredth time? I was just wondering......
