a work in progess… with poms

So, we moved up to Seattle with a car full of stuff. No shipped boxes, no U-Haul, nada. Our relocation came about quickly and all of our things are in a storage pod. Our apartment is rented by a corporate housing company. It came fully furnished and “decorated”. When we moved in it looked very sterile, very hotel like.

that’s what she said

I am still in mourning after last nights series finale of The Office. Did you watch the show? I remember watching the first season on DVD in college when my friend Annie sold me on it. That girl is picky about her tv- we had regular viewing sessions of “Date My Mom” and “Pimp My Life,” so I knew whatever she brought to me would be gold. And it was. Such a relate-able, funny, heartwarming, ridiculous half-hour. Read more…

how entertaining

It was sunny and oh so fabulous in Seattle this past weekend. There are only 50 odd sunny days in Seattle a year, so I am mentally ticking off the days of sunshine we have left. I always have to add things up, subtract them away… In the sense that I worry about how much time I have for everything. NOT in the sense that I can comprehend an inkling of math. Math to me is like this… Read more…
