We have had tons of rain! However, none of it in the right place. Oh well, we were able to get one sample! I am doing an alkalinity right now! To be more precise, I'm doing an ANC. Can you figure out the difference?!?

I hate working...confirmed my true calling

I, Environwx, officially hate working for a living.  I have found my true calling, a stay at home wife.  That isn't to say, I will get to sit on the couch and eat Godiva Truffles all day...that doesn't sound too shabby....

I could truly find time to clean the house the way it should truly be cleaned, I can cook wonderful dinner for Wezul, and just be happy as a tick on a dog instead of seeing if I need to pick ticks off of myself because I work in the field.............................

This always happens when I take two weeks off from work...I realize I want to be home...alas...reality is I have to work...but at least I have a job that I don't dread most days!!!

Other than finally returning to work on Monday, Wezul and I haven't been doing much that is blog worthy but watching lots and lots of football.  Between college and pro games and regular tv shows we watch, we are always watching something.

This is it for now...................

Wezul and I decided to break from the normal routine and go to Independence Hall and to see the Liberty Bell.  It was not Wezul's first choice, but then again, he had a hankering for an original philly cheesesteak.  If we were going to drive that far, we might as well see a site or two.  There is definitely plenty to do in Philadelphia on a second trip.  There was plenty I didn't get a chance to see.

For Wezul's first love, it took us to the Reading Terminal Market on a quest to find his philly cheesesteak.  We were able to find the vendor he was looking for - DiNic's.  It was pure heaven for him.  He had the roasted pork; therefore, it wasn't the traditional philly cheesesteak, but it was all he wanted.  He left there with a happy stomach.  Good thing he got his sandwich when he did, because, while he was eating the last few bites...they turned away 20+ people because they had ran out of all the food.  Apparently, they are very popular.  ;)

Before we leave, we had to find me food.  On our way to DiNic's, we saw La Scala's.  We went back there after we left the Market.  I got a small cheese pizza and Wezul got the Tuscan White Bean Minestrone Soup.  Yes, he was still able to eat after his sandwich.  I have to say, all the food we have had has been very tasty!

Even the standard bar food we had tonight for dinner...RFD Washington was tasty.  Wezul could not pass up trying a few of their beers off their small beer list.  That is why we chose to eat there tonight instead of somewhere else.

Tomorrow is our last day, and we will be heading home.  We are hoping to squeeze in a couple more fun stops before we return to reality.

No matter what, our belated anniversary trip was a hoot...

Too many choices

Wezul is insane in the brain - 500 + beers to choose from - mental overload! Gonna be a tough morning!!!

Another busy and fun filled day...yesterday!

Our first stop was the National Zoo!  We saw lions, tigers, and bears - oh my!  Not to mention the pandas and elephants...two of my personal favorites.  Boy did we do a lot of walking.  Luckily, we took the metro to the a stop that was "relatively" close to the zoo's entrance.

So far for me, the biggest downside has been the metro.  Some of the escalators are really steep and you cover a lot of height.  UGH!  Environwx not such a happy person on them.  Most days I don't mind escalators, there isn't a "I'm going to die feeling by falling"...these on the other hand...all I can say...I hope I don't have to ride it again.

After having an amazing lunch at Ella's Wood Fired Pizza we went back to the hotel to download the pictures from the zoo.  Once again, we rode the metro to our next stop which was the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.  Luckily for me, these escalators were not on steriods.  :)  We did a lot of walking around here too; however, we sat through two presentations.  One was in the Einstein Planetarium - "Black Holes", and the second one was in the IMAX called Hubble 3D.  That was pretty awesome.

Following the cool Hubble show, it was time for dinner at Nando's Peri-Peri.  It was a very tasty find on our walk back to the hotel.

As for today, we are going to do what we had planned to do yesterday, but couldn't.  All the information you will need is located in the "Our piggies are tired!" post.  Can you figure it out?!?

Our piggies are tired!

As you can tell, Wezul and I have landed in our nation's capital again.  When I say landed, I mean we drove.  We decided to stay at the same hotel we stayed on our way home from Canada.  This means we can walk to the majority of the sites in the area on foot.

FYI - from our hotel to our first stop which was the Museum of Natural History, it is approximately 1.1 miles one way.  Hence the tired piggies!

Today we visited the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History and the National Archives to visit the Charters of Freedom.  I definitely can tell the difference between the way Wezul's mind works compared to mine.  I am trying to soak in all the information possible, and Wezul is looking and bolting.  It worked out well if you like chasing someone who is ready to go.  The biggest disappointment so far was the condition of the Declaration of Independence.  It hasn't held up as well as the Constitution.  I guess that is what they get for letting Nicholas Cage run around with it in National Treasure.  Haha!  Just kidding...

We have couple more days in the "area".  Take you best chance at guessing where we are headed tomorrow.  Heehee!
