My entire morning was craptastic. I dropped the kids off an school only to see a pile of gifts for Batman’s teachers that they were opening (spa robes!?!) and I got them nothing for the last day of school. Dropped Robin off. Got in the car, called The Spouse, and headed to Target where I power shopped a straw tote bag of summer stuff for the teachers (beach towels, freezer pops, water bottle, chocolate, sunscreen) and thank you notes. Went home to non-stop dog barking while I artfully arranged the totes and left them on the table for The Spouse to retrieve and deliver, then headed to 395.
Thankfully, I heard about the Pentagon suspicious vehicle mess before driving into it. I stayed on the main line. Got off to pee. Drove through town to Columbia Pike, took 50 to 66 to DC.
Arrived at 10:25. Probably an hour later than I would have been due to the traffic.
