Yesterday we drove to Bellevue for a full-body bone scan. An hour up and an hour and a half back. Our beloved 405 "freeway" - a clogged mess, esp on a Fri night. (For those with Puget Sound knowledge, leaving Bellevue for Tacoma at 5:00 on a ... Read more

I have big-time "all or nothing" programming, from w-a-y back! I'm also more than a little bit of a perfectionist. Lovely combination, trust me! I'd been very active in the Spark-verse up till Nov - went out of town for over a week and a ... Read more

DH is gone to a fishing conference for the weekend. That's usually a time for me to have pizza for dinner one night, since he's not such a big fan. PLUS, I'm seeing my sister tonight, and we love sharing a garlic-sauced pizza. So I pla... Read more
