Oh, how wonderful it was!

How wonderful it was today. I went out. First time I’d been out since February 28, when I had the procedure. My, it was nice to return to civilization. Went to Wal-Mart, and got some odds and ends, and said hello to everyone. And get this – I ended up having Wednesday and Thursday off as regular days off. How nice! So I don’t have to go back to work until Friday.

And since the doctor said I can resume my normal activities, you know where I’m going? Washington DC! I asked about DC, and he said that DC was fine. And with those days off, I think someone is trying to tell me something. It’s just telling me, “BEN, GO TO WASHINGTON!”

Those of you who have followed my Journal since the first of the year have found that I’ve only had two out of five DC trips planned for this year go without a hitch. My first trip of the year, January 4, got a late start due to oversleeping. I was, however, through some stroke of good fortune, able to shorten that delay considerably. So that was good. Then the next trip was J20. That went off without a hitch – in fact, it went better than expected. Then February 2, I was supposed to go with Katie. Cancelled due to an emergency (that led to the procedure on February 28). February 9, I went, and it went without a hitch. February 24, I was supposed to go, but I got snowed out. Now I hope to have another trip go without a hitch, and make it three to three – three flawless and three problems. Plus going to Washington is just what I need right now, since I’ve got a major case of cabin fever. I need out!

All in all, though, I’m just glad to be getting back into the swing of things. Oh, and I bought this year’s pair of sandals today, which I will proudly wear with socks, like I did last year.
