Wow, Yeah it's been a long time since I posted! The computer has been monopolized by Pete every night this week so I havn't been able to update.
Seattle was so much fun! Chrissy is great. Seriously, I saw her sitting on a bench waiting for me and it was just like I'd known her forever. No akwardness whatsoever. (in case anyone was wondering!) We walked all over Seattle on Friday, (yeah, we were kinda lost) and then we walked all over Bellevue on Saturday (but we didn't get lost over there!) My legs are still hurtin' from it! (uh huh, I'm a little out of shape)Ok they're not hurting anymore, but they were when I wrote 4 days ago. LOL! But it was really a lot of fun. We met Nicole and Jaquiline on Friday night....Nicole is just as sweet in person as she seems on her blog. And Jaquiline and I were on the same flight home back to California! She lives near me in Santa Rosa and told me about a scrapbook store in Berkeley that I'm going to have to go check out. Seattle was a beautiful city, and I really felt at home there. If it didn't rain all the time, I could live there. It was like a little miniature San Francisco..but better! Pete did great with the kids while I was gone...but I guess he hit up one of his sisters to watch Megan on Saturday. That's ok though. :) He told me he could never deal with me being gone for like a whole week or anything. He said breakfast and lunch was no problem, but he'd have a hard time with dinner....He said he'd have to think about it all day, and that he'd have to stop what he was doing in the late afternoon in order to make dinner. Really? ya think?! LOL!! Noooo, I could never relate to that! ha ha! But in his defense, he did a really good job, and I came home to a clean house, freshly mopped floor, and all the laundry washed, folded AND put away (for the most part). So he get's an A for the weekend. :)
The time change has really screwed me and the kids up. I hate when we switch from daylight savings. Yeah, I know we get an 'extra hour' to sleep or whatever...and it is nice that it's not pitch black dark when I leave the house in the morning...BUT it IS pitch black when I get home and I can not stand it! I hate driving in the dark. It took me about 15 minutes extra to get home yesterday. That's a big difference when you've only got an hour and a half to get dinner and baths in before bed time. Oh yeah, and Megan was just fit to be tied Monday night. She was so ready to go to bed by the time we got home. In her mind it WAS bedtime. So I put her down by 7:15 and didn't hear a thing from her the rest of the night.
I think the time change has messed with my mood or something. The last two days at work I've been really cranky. You'd think after such a good weekend I'd be in a good mood. For some reason I'm just not! I guess I should be grateful for this job where they pay me a lot to do nothing. (And I am) but grrrr...I get so uptight when people don't do their own work....or expect others (me) to do it for them. And I didn't know this either...but apparently, I'm a personal fax machine. Yep. And why does the day seem so much longer, even though it's dark earlier? Every time I look up at the clock, I swear it's moving backwards instead of forwards.
Anyways, I can tell my attitude problem is seeping into this blog post so I'll end it here. Here's some pics from the weekend :)
Look! I'm touching the Space Needle! Little did you know, Seattle really IS a miniature city! ha ha ha!!!

Here's Chrissy...isn't she cute? :)

I love this one!

This is from the roof of our hotel-so cool :)

Here's one of me just for face looks really red...not sure why other than it was kinda cold up there!

Ok, more later..someone is freaking out right's bed time!

Glad to hear that Pete survived the weekend :)
And it was so nice to meet you too...totally wish we could have had more time to hang out - or at least have been at the same hotel so we weren't so far out there - but glad we got together for dinner!
Love the pictures!
And I'm wondering if the out of sorts thing is from Seattle (too much fun away I think)...I totally feel unlike myself too - plus the kids with the time change - not good!
Anyway hope you have a great weekend!

Yay for Pete! We did come through Tracy, actually ate dinner there, but it was late and I knew you had to work.

I was thinking of you guys though and Sean kept saying, "These are Corey's stomping grounds!" So yeah, I got to see what you see every day.

Love the pics and can't wait to dig through mine{Sean STILL hasn't hooked up the big computer and we've been here almost 24 hours!}

Talk soon, Chrissy

Kimberly White said...

Woo hoo Pete! Hooray for husbands who step up to the plate and then tell you how much they need you!

I felt the exact same way about meeting Chrissy - like we had known eachother forever and absolutely no awkwardness! She's awesome! So glad that you had fun in Seattle! Love your pics!

Hope you have a happy day!
PS. I don't like the time change either - it's harder to tell Joel it's still night time when the sun is up (he sometimes wakes up way to early!) and I miss the sun in the afternoon!
