We headed to Tyson’s Corner this morning to pick up Kelly’s wedding ring, which had come yesterday. This time, it fit perfectly. We stopped at Cinnabon so that I could eat something. And we stopped at Banana Republic for Kelly to do some dress shopping (and I got a shirt). Then it was back home, where Kelly had a quick lunch and headed out to Annapolis with Sarah.
I spent the afternoon alone. I did some reading, more of The Ghost Brigades. I watched an episode of The Office.
And I wrote.
I worked on my workshop story and it is all falling into place. The tips that the workshop group gave me have helped immensely and the story, which had been a kind of gel, has solidified in my head. I found when I was writing today that I was much more conscious of the elements of story-telling that we’d been covering in the workshop. I wrote more slowly, but I was very happy with what I wrote, and I left off knowing exactly where things pick up next time, and I’m eager to move forward.
Kelly was home around 6 or so. I headed to the gym at around 7:30 and did a quick workout, 20 minutes of cardio. My knee acted up and I stopped after 20 minutes. Around 8:30, we headed to Carpool to meet up with a bunch of people for Jesseca’s birthday. We drove around for a while looking for parking, but found nothing. So we ended up parking at the Balston Mall. We spent about 90 minutes at the bar before coming home.
On tap tomorrow, a dance lesson…
