MrsMJ and I have made it to my mother’s in NC where we are enjoying some quiet time after all the packing and moving drama exiting DC. It was quite the interesting exit with some moving van issues that created a bit of a wrinkle that hadn’t been planned on. Somehow we got it all packed and are now half-way through our drive to Atlanta.

Phase 2 of the move will begin Monday when MrsMJ and I drive down to Atlanta and spend the next week at the W Atlanta – Buckhead. I think a week in a hotel will be a good thing. 🙂 Now if I can just get to the gym some during the week to start making up for my slacking off in the last 2 weeks. 🙂 Oh well, I guess moving is exercise on its own!

Most interesting thing so far in our life outside the beltway? Dining at a favorite restaurant in Raleigh, NC, I spotted a guy with a pistol stuffed into his shorts. Life outside the beltway indeed. More to come, including wall to wall coverage of our stay at the W and our first try of P.A.W. (Pets are Welcome) services.
