Happy Summer

We started our summer off right with cool weather and rain. I love Seattle!
Tony & I went to the Home Depot yesterday to pick up some soil, pots and a few plants. We replanted a few things and Tony set up a terrarium. When we stopped by Walgreens the other night, he picked up a venus flytrap and thought it would grow best in that environment.

Wow. How unexciting is that?

Miss Betsyroo! I miss you! Come visit soon :D I will call you this weekend.

Mum, I plan to give you a ring, too.

Screech gets to go to the vet this weekend for a check-up and to get his cough checked out. He was coughing lots and then after I made the appointment, he stopped. Typical. Chris is having a beginning of summer party saturday. Fun will be had!

Eat, Drink and Be Merry

Happy Day-After-Father's Day!

My weekend was :( and then :)
While at work on Friday, a headache crept up on me. The Advil did nothing. It hurt. It made me nauseous. After dinner, I took an Advil Cold & Sinus thinking that it might be my sinuses. Alas, the headache did not go away. I felt like poo, so I stayed home while Tony went to Natalie's for hanging out fun.

Saturday morning, my head was still hurting slightly but was not horrendous. Natalie came over and she, Tony and I went to The Globe for brunch. It's a vegan hippy dive down the street from us. Holy cow. It took an hour to get our food! We had to shove it down our throats since I had book club to go to. I hung out with my book club girlfriends for a few hours before heading home. Tony & I then went to see Batman Begins. It was good! Afterwards, Natalie & Amanda came over for hanging-out fun. My headache did finally go away around midday after I took an Aleve.

After making brunch on Sunday, I headed out to pick up Stine & Sandi for thrift shopping. I scored on some cute shoes and other items. We also had lunch and chatted for a bit. Fun day! I finally made it home around 7:30pm. Tony & I had some dinner and watched a depressing documentary called Children Underground.

Work is a'callin. Gotta run!

Michael Jackson is innocent

My weekend by Kris:

Friday: tour of bed & breakfast places on Capitol Hill. No rooms were available due to graduation weekend. We went to Coastal Kitchen for dinner. After Dad & Carolyn headed to their hotel, Chris & Natalie came over to hang out.

Saturday: treated the folks to massages from Stine. We went to see Star Wars at the Cinerama in the afternoon. Afterwards, we grabbed some good eats at Six Arms.

Sunday: I was hoping we could take a day trip to go whale watching, but it just wasn't feasible with the ferry schedule. Instead of going to the San Juan Islands, we headed to Snoqualmie Falls and then had a late lunch. Afterwards, we headed back home to sit around and chat for a bit before Dad & Carolyn headed back to their hotel and then home this morning.

OK, time for bed!

Oh no I didn't!

I have a confession to make:
We moved into this apartment in November and I just finally dealt with the Piles of Crap that were sitting in the bedroom that I hadn't bothered to put away for all of these months. Our bedroom has looked a mess ever since we moved in because of my procrastination. We haven't had a housewarming party because of the Piles of Crap. Well, I couldn't let family see my Piles of Crap. So i did it. I figured out what to do with it all.

Now the bedroom looks very empty. We desperately need to decorate. I'm not sure how to hide the elliptical machine. It is large.

Before I got off my ass and stopped procrastinating, we went out to dinner with Dad & Carolyn to Ivar's Salmon House. Everyone else ordered the halibut fish & chips except for me. If I'm at a restaurant that specializes in salmon, I'm gonna order salmon. It was delish! Everyone else thought so and wished that they had ordered it, too! I have leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Yay, leftovers!

Dad & Carolyn also shared cruise give-away fun stuff like feather boas, chocolate and wine. Decadence! They also gave me one of Grandma's watches from Shaw Jewelers. It is lovely!

Squirmy monkey!

Wanna see more pictures?

Let's see...what has been going on...
Oh yeah - Friday for lunch, I picked up Dad & Carolyn from the airport for lunch before they headed downtown for their convention. Friday night, we went out for dinner and drinks with a bunch of people. We were able to keep ourselves under control for once. Dinner at Jai Thai and then drinks at Bad JuJu Lounge and Barca. We ended the night with Frites!

Saturday, Tony & I did a little shopping and now have a proper coffee table. Our living room is shaping up! We also saw The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and thought it was lots of fun. Saturday night, we went to the Mercury and hung out with friends.

Sunday, we were lazy. We did get out to the Farmer's market that is on Capitol Hill on Sundays, but that was it. We purchased lots of lovely organic produce that was grown locally. I was a little productive and did a couple of loads of laundry. i would have done more but the dryer was being lame and eating my quarters. We stayed home that night and watched Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events. The visuals were nice, but the movie was only OK.

OK, I should get to bed now.

Back in Black

My trip to San Diego was good. It was hard to leave. Jenn & I went shopping Monday afternoon while Duncan watched Cameron and I was already missing the little squirmy monkey. He is just a doll. I hope to put up the movies I took very soon along with the pictures.

Having Monday off put me quite behind at work. There is so much to do and not enough time! What? What is that, you say? Why yes, I am writing this while at work! I have to take a brain break once in awhile, you know?

My heart weighs heavy with some things going on right now with people that I love dearly. I worry. I wish I could fix things. I hope everything turns out for the best. I miss you.
