Getting crabby

Blue Crab and Blue Moon

The weather this weekend has been incredible, so we drove up near Annapolis today to have crabs. We went to Mike’s Crab House at the recommendation of a classmate, and it was great. We sat outside by the water and watched a family of ducks while we made total messes of ourselves with crabs – yummy! We also drove through downtown Annapolis while we were in the neighborhood.

John started working on the Passport Task Force this week (including Saturday), which means he is no longer at the FSI campus. Instead, he’s working downtown and takes the Metro to work every day.  Thanks to him, several hundred more people got their passports processed this week. I’ll start tomorrow morning, too.

Last night, we went with two friends to see the new Harry Potter movie and then out for drinks and a bite to eat afterwards. Again, the weather was so pleasant, we found a good little bar and sat outside. Earlier in the week, we enjoyed happy hour (complete with oysters) at Clyde’s downtown with our classmates.

Otherwise, the week was pretty calm. I was in a training class most of the week to learn how to adjudicate passports. The Task Force requires that we work 48 hours per week, so most days John worked 7 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., then part of the day on Saturday. I expect to do the same, which is going to require a re-work of my morning routine. I’ve been going to the gym every morning to walk on the treadmill, but I don’t think I can continue to do that and still catch the Metro by 6:10 a.m. Hmmmm.

Anyway, here’s a photo of Noodle sitting in one of his favorite new spots in the apartment (above the refrigerator).
