On the bright side of it all I was able to spend three of those nights with Maddie and Trevor, it was just like Three's Company except two of the roommates are married! They were the best hosts, making sure I had breakfast every morning, offering me dinner every night and not sending me to bed before I'd had my bowl of ice cream. I honestly don't know if I could have made it without their generosity. Their house, the people and animals that occupy it really make you feel like you're home even if all of your toiletries are in travel containers. Since coming home I've told myself I need time to "catch up on rest" aka lay in bed and watch movies. My "fatigue" combined with the cool weather leaves me no choice really.
And Ogden I apologize, you're not all that bad. I did enjoy downtown Washington Boulevard and your old town tree-lined streets.
