So, not a whole lots going on. Just random stuff:
Mom and Dad (Marianne and Joe) are coming for the weekend - so I'm looking forward to finally getting to see the International Spy Museum and I'm thinking we'll go to mass at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Since I have no idea where there's a church by me - and this one is supposed to be gorgeous - figured it might be worth it to trek up there for mass! The question - drive or metro. Something to work on this week.
Note to self: take more pictures! I really need to get out with my camera and just play. There's a spot coming out of Ft Myer that has a spectacular view of the monuments and the mall. I just need to pull off the side of the road and jump out there.
I'm thinking of getting a custom collage made from this artist. I can only imagine what she'd do with pictures of Joe, me, Sabot and Yankee. Something to think about for when I get back. And - I think she's a local to the Seattle area! Even better - supporting local artists.
The tragedy of the week - I have spent over an hour on the phone (mostly waiting) with the IT support people yesterday. Seems in my move from one organization to another my "safe" drive (where I was supposed to store files so I could have them no matter where in the Navy I went) had all the files go missing. Wonderful. All my research for my ELP team was on there. All my in-process papers. Updated resume. Everything. So much for safe. I'd be more upset if I had already migrated everything I have still on "legacy" in the SY. But, I didn't. Sigh. It's just so typical.
