Things are finally slowing down and I feel like I can catch my breath a bit. My parents came down for the weekend and we had a great time exploring on Saturday. Have you ever been in a submarine? If your interested check out the Submarine Force Museum in Groton, Connecticut. It is pretty cool. We got to go in the Nautilus.
Aboard NAUTILUS, experience first-hand the thrill of being a submariner as you walk the decks that made Naval history: the world's first nuclear powered vessel, first ship to go to the North Pole, and first submarine to journey "20,000 Leagues under the sea." Explore the spaces where the crew of this amazing ship worked, ate, slept, and entertained themselves on their long voyages far beneath the ocean's waves.
Let me tell you there is not much room for maneuvering in this submarine. The little holes to crawl through from one compartment to the next took some effort to squeeze through.
Sunday it was time to hunker down a bit. I came up with a bag of clothes to take to Goodwill from my closet.
I got a rid of a 20 gallon container of old bed sheets in sizes that we no longer had mattresses. I also went to BJ's. I will never get over how much paper products costs. You need toilet paper but I hate buying it. We do have enough to last about 6 months but seriously $15. Yikes!
This afternoon I had a massive cookie fail which I will tell you all about tomorrow. Until then enjoy the last few hours of freedom before the work week starts again.
