Butterflies and Hurricane Sandy...

Here is is 0926 on Tuesday.....And I have yet to go home from working yesterday starting at 0630....Due to the lovely Sandy.

I am essential personnel here in Fairfax. I am a 911 Dispatcher so I have to report no matter what.  SO needless to say I really miss my husband and my dog... Well mostly just the dog... J/K (not really)

Yesterday was not all that bad at work because people actually listened to everyone and did not leave their house unless needed. Until the wind picked up around 530ish...When all the trees decided to fall on top houses. Luckily no one was injured.  With all the power outages, trees down and water it go extremely busy up until we were relieved at 1900. (7pm) But since the county was closed we got double time!!

I decided to keep myself safe and stay at a hotel overnight instead of heading home since I had to be back here at 0630. I probably could have made it home but I did not want to take that chance. We stayed at the Hyatt Fair Lakes. Ir is pretty nice. And …

Busy Weekend

WOW we had a busy weekend...

Started off with a get together with some of Steve's hockey teammates for poker and just a fun evening hanging out, Once we got to their beautiful house. I go into the kitchen only to find out I went to HS with his wife. What a small world... We had a great time hanging out and enjoying the company.

Then on Saturday, Steve and I headed to Old Town so I would know how to get to the brunch I was going to the next day. We decided to take our dog as well just to let her enjoy a ride in the car. But she is good in the car but is always trying to get to the window so she can stick her head out. But that involves her going back and forth between my lap and the window. Once we got to the restaurant and I knew where I was going we headed back. We took the scenic route back through the GW Parkway along the Potomac River.
