Whirlwind Trip to Washington (again)


After my whirlwind weekend I am ever so glad to be home and in my own bed again. I love my little car, but it kills my back. I don't have this problem in other cars. It seems to be exclusive to my car. There is something about the seat and the way I hold the steering wheel! It just does me in! Add in over 12 hours of driving solo this weekend, and that's a lot of back pain.
Also, a lot of Dr. Pepper.
Car Door: 1, Erin: 0. Fourteen hours after this picture was taken, and it now looks worse. And it hurts a LOT more than when it happened.
It was a great weekend though. I got a lot accomplished, saw friends and family, had some fun, and enjoyed the experience of speaking to the singles conference. As I said before, I enjoy speaking and it doesn't intimidate me. However, when I arrived (much later than I had intended to) at the conference, and saw that most of the audience was older than me, I got a little concerned that they would not take me seriously, or would not care. It was a really good learning experience for me to see not only did they listen to me, but that by listening to them, I learned something. So often the singles world really forces the divide of the ages, and acts like we can't all get along. It was a good experience for me to remember that maybe we don't all want to be on the same volleyball team, but in spite of our age differences, we have many similar life experiences.


I had a LOT of time in the car driving up and down and all around this weekend. It gave me a lot of time to think and sort of relax. The good part is that I find my writing mojo again. And my political mojo. Both had disappeared or burned out on me for a while. But after lots of time to myself, and lots of walking around the National Monuments in DC, I'm feeling whole again. It is definitely time to get back into politics, campaigning, and caring!
