So, I’ve been lacking in the post department. I don’t really have anything interesting to post about and I’m pretty sure no one wants to hear about the depressing things going through my head. I know I don’t. But I don’t get much of a choice in that matter.
So, instead I offer you some pictures from a trip to the zoo we took a few weeks ago for my husband’s birthday. I played hooky from work and we hopped on the metro to DC and went to the national zoo. Aside from the painful flip flop blisters I got (new flip flops + a lot of walking = really stupid idea) we had a really nice time.
They were in the middle of construction on a trail through the entire zoo for the elephants to use.
This lady just sat and watched the panda bears on the monitors. And we just watched her. I don’t think I’d want this job.
I don’t remember what this animal was called but it looked like a giant guinea pig.
There were several spiders in this exhibit and there were no walls or enclosure of any kind. A little creepy. They were big spiders.
We are headed to the beach this weekend for a much needed but all too short vacation. Since Courtney was laid off he’s been picking up a lot of side work that has kept us afloat. One lady he’s been working for has been nice enough to offer us her time share in Ocean City this weekend and we gladly accepted. I haven’t been to Ocean City in at least 6 or 7 years so it will be nice to go back.
