Made It!

I made it!  I have arrived in Quantico a few hours later than I thought but I AM HERE.  Oh my goodness----- TRAFFIC! UGH!  How can anyone stand that much traffic? I was in complete dread of the Capital Beltway around Washington, DC and I was right to dread it.  Horrendous! I-95 South towards Richmond, VA wasn't any better. How can there be SO many lanes of traffic ALL congested? Why does everyone want to merge into my lane? How can there be so many cars all traveling the same direction in the MIDDLE of the afternoon??? ARGH!  I will have to ponder these visits to Quantico.  I miss my easy route to the Naval Academy.  I never had to drive there with the white knuckles of death on my steering wheel. I left this morning before 7am and the NEXT time I make this trip, I am leaving before 6am! I think if I aim to leave one hour earlier MAYBE just MAYBE I can miss the beltway traffic. The good news of course is that I made it.  No one rear ended me. I didn't end up on the side of the road like so many other cars I drove by.  The refrigerator in my room is large enough to hold ALL the food I brought for my daughter.  I had to remove the ice tray and then I loaded the freezer to capacity!  Now all I have to do is wait for my daughter to be relieved for the weekend. Okay Marine Corps - I am here. You can let my daughter leave now. I shall sit here and wait. And wait.  And wait.  Is she here yet? Nope.  How about now? Nope. Now???? NOPE. Okay I am ready! I am here!  I am waiting!

  1. What a sweet mom you are! I would have been beside myself with joy to have had such visits when I was a college student!
    Glad you made it to Virginia safely!
