I spent most of today in Northern Virginia working on plans for the 2019 Virginia State Reading Association conference. Once the day’s work was finished, I prepared to leave Arlington for the journey home.
It was raining pretty hard when I started my trip. Not only did I have to deal with the weather, but the traffic was intense. Two traffic jams, one for an accident, extended the trip significantly before I’d made traveled more than 15 or 20 miles. Then, about an hour and a half from home, traffic was slowed for paving. I finally pulled into my driveway about five hours after starting off. The trip was not too horrible, though, thanks to a funny audiobook that had me laughing out loud. I can’t imagine traveling any long distance without an audiobook to keep me company!
