Lately I’ve been muttering under my breath, “I hate this place”, as I walk through Red Robin. I really don’t hate it…I love it. I’ve been working there for almost seven years and it is comfortable and it feels like mine. But lately it’s been feeling too comfortable. So comfortable that it’s stifling. I’m not […]

moving to Cali

March 28th, 2006 No Comments

I’m itching to find myself in someplace new. I don’t, as many of my neighbors do, involve myself in Spokane-bashing. I love it here. There is magic on this 2 acre plot where I’ve grown up- I can feel it at twilight. But I can feel myself not growing. This is too comfortable. I am […]

I’ve been organizing all of my stuff today. I have half of my parents basement full of endless boxes of junk. I’ve been on a quest lately to get rid of lots of it, or make it useful. It’s all neat junk. It’s all sentimental junk. It’s all wonderfully unique and charming, but it’s become […]

Eric and Kat sure make really adorable babies! It was quite an event at the hostipal as Kat and Eric had their second child, and Danika, Kat’s sister, was down the hall having her first. The cousins were born two hours apart-Samantha was first! Mom and baby and Daddy and sister and Grandma and Grandpa […]

For those of you waiting and wondering….Samantha arrived this morning at 8:09 am weighing 8 pounds and nine ounzes, and measuring 21 inches in length. She has all of her fingers and toes and stuff too! She was born about 2 hours before her cousin, just a few doors down in the same hospital. I’ll […]

I am the queen of multi-tasking. =) Today I ate my cereal in the car on my way to school. I put my lotion on my legs while I read the teachers instructions. I read my book while I monitored the students. I appliqued a square on Samantha’s baby quilt while I ate my lunch. […]
