Back to real weather

We left Ft. Myers on time at 9:30 AM. We had a direct flight back to Reagan National airport and it was uneventful. While it was sunny and warm when we left Florida, it was rainy and cold when we arrived in Washington. We waited at baggage claim for our luggage and then made our way to the Metro station. Kelly was going straight to work, to put in half a day. I headed home.

I was home sometime around 1 PM. Zeke was fine, happy to see me after 5 days on his own, but perhaps mildly annoyed too. His frustration was quickly assuaged after he got some of his canned food (he’d had only dry food for 5 days).

I spent most of the afternoon going through mail and cleaning up the house. I did laundry, I emptied the trash. Since I only have 2 days of work this week, I didn’t end up going grocery shopping today. I ran out and got some milk and some laundry detergent, but that’s all I need until the weekend.

Friday night, Kelly and I are going to see Spamalot at the National Theater and I’m looking forward to that. Back to work tomorrow, and I’m not looking forward to that. I wish I had the rest of the week off but we’re saving up vacation time so that we can take a vacation later in the year.
