Long Time No See

As part of my Mother's Day gift, my husband took me to Washington, D.C. for a few days. We've been there several times before, so rather than sightsee, we ate and ate, and ate. We also visited friends in Georgetown. We returned home a couple of hours ago, only to find out my son and his bride are leaving for Boston tomorrow for the weekend. Long time, no see, them or you! I'm beat, but will see you soon.

I'm trying to imagine what WA D.C. is like but can't entirely.

It is said that marriage will make the couples gain weight. Sure enough, hubby and I gained weight, because we love eating. He would cook deliciously or we would eat out. I think eating is the way most couples bond.

Lol! You are right. Just look at my husband. He eats too much, but we both eat healthy foods. I'm more careful.

Well, yes you missed him but he was in good hands while you were out having fun @DianneN I'm glad he's doing better but too bad for those little chipmunks.

It was a fun get away. Thank you! I heard that Doodles caught his 5th chipmunk today. Bad boy! His lab tests came back good, so he's doing well on his meds. Thanks so much for asking. I missed him as much as I missed the kids. lol

@rebelann Thanks and so do we feel badly. Our son said Doodles was so quick and the chipmunk seemed very sluggish. He couldn't stop Doodles in time.

@silvermist Doodles had lab tests and the results are in. He is absorbing his new heart and pain pills perfectly. Now, I have to keep him from catching chipmunks. He caught 5 in two weeks! Bad boy!

When I was a teenager, my parents, sister and I visited Washington DC and did some site seeing, like visiting the White House (that is when tourists could go inside the White House for a tour Reagan was President), we saw the Lincoln Memorial, Smithsonian & where the paper money is made. I would like to visit again with my husband, hopefully in the not too distant future.

One of those places I have never been, although I almost went once when I was stationed in Norfolk. Eating sounds like a blast, and I don't think I can ever get enough of that.
