Awe Inspiring

We returned last night from the first of our "mini-vacations." We traveled to Baltimore, MD for the weekend. It was close, and none of us had really been tourists there before. What a terrific trip! We saw educational and interesting sites - Ft. McHenry of "Star Spangled Banner" fame, the Maritime Museum to tour ships and even a submarine. We toured Edgar Allen Poe's grave, which is located in a fascinating old churchyard and the fantastic National Aquarium. We even made it down to Annapolis for a fabulous early dinner with some very dear friends.

But my friends, I must tell you about the most amazing site that we visited. I had heard many things about this fabulous place and had even viewed the website in the past. I must tell you that the website does not do this monument justice. Truly one of the man-made wonders of the world, it was vast and breathtaking when visited in person. We got lost at one point in our self-guided tour, and yet everything we viewed was amazing. Everywhere we looked we saw simple, yet functional beauty. We were in awe.

Yes my friends, we discovered an Ikea showroom.

About Me: I'm the mom of three: #1 Son (20), The Princess of Wails (17) and their baby brother - The Baby (6). I was a grad-student working on an MA in history until we were surprised - I mean blessed - with The Baby. I'll get back to it...someday (the thesis, not the kid - I have no choice concerning the kid). I am one of only a few people I went to school with who is actually using their history degree in my career (and to think my Father called it Basket-weaving!). I live a very hectic life amongst massive clutter. I call it a good day if we have managed to get home at night without losing one of the kids (no matter how hard I try!). Friends say I have a humorous take on life's happenings. The sad part is that what I write about is true. I laugh to keep from crying.
