Just an ordinary week in DC

KATARINA’S DC SCHEDULE – JUNE 13 – JUNE 15 capitol

You know it’s real when you open your documents and it starts with KATARINA’S DC SCHEDULE – JUNE 13 – JUNE 15. There is both a sense of relief that somebody else has gone to the trouble of organizing your days, but also the anxiety of the fat pack that comes with the brief.

I think I’ve never been more excited over a work week and still, I love going to work. Being a West Wing buff just being able to spend time in Washington DC is pretty special. Considering who we are going to meet and where we are going to visit during the next couple of days is nothing but inspiring.

If not to overwhelmed, I will do short write ups of the three first days of this week. Tom Manatos tells me though, I wont be able to take pics and tell all.
