16th Week in Review: Our Eastern Headquarters

The car saga continues as the car still sits in a repair shop in Alabama.  Luckily, there are no new issues with it, we are just waiting on the part to arrive.  Meanwhile, we have been very busy with Sharon’s commencement on Friday, Angela and Paul’s wedding in Front Royal on Saturday, the Taste of Arlington on Sunday, Sharon’s mom’s birthday on Monday, and lots of visits and catching up in between.  We even managed to get some volunteering in by joining Sharon’s mom at the Ronald McDonald House last Friday.

This week will hopefully involve a trip to Huntsville to pick up the car and then more visiting and chores in northern Virginia before we head north for the next leg of our journey.

Hours volunteered: 3 – moving boxes at the Ronald McDonald House in Fairfax, VA

States: 1, Virginia –  Fairfax, Front Royal, Arlington, Alexandria, Reston

Budget: Under – We haven’t actually had to pay the car repair bill yet since the car hasn’t been repaired yet.  I guess that’s a bright side…

Nights under the stars:  0

Best meal: Wild Boar Pappardelle & Fettucine with Jumbo Lump Crab at Ozzie’s in Fairfax for Sharon’s mom’s birthday

The apple donuts from the Apple House in Linden deserve a shout out as well.  They are always a reason to get off I-66 and pick up a treat.

Best beer: Mad Fox‘s Diabolik (a Belgium Strong Ale)
