Update 3/2 – 3/8
Hung out at Zach’s to watch Elementary early in the week. He was well on his way to making cheese fondue when I arrived. Tristan told me a story about how he grew up in a trailer, and because his mom liked to make a lot of fondue, he assumed that fondue was considered a “Trailer Trash” kind of thing. I thought his story was very amusing.
Me: Why do you say “what” every time I laugh at something you say?
Tristan: I figure if you tell me why I was funny, I’ll be able to figure out how to replicate it.
Me: If only it were that simple.
Tristan declared Zach’s fondue, “Cheese wine.” I was surprised Zach liked it, with his aversion to all things alcoholic, but Zach just explained, “I guess I would rather eat wine than drink it.”
I was walking up on the Mezzanine, looking down at the Magic and Warhammer(?) players.
Me: Look at those Nerds
Darren: Right, how many LAN parties have you had again?
Me: Just the one – you know that, you were there.
We had a fun little baby shower for Christy in which we used our licensing powers for good.
I’m going to miss that lady!
On Thursday, I came home and saw this critter swimming along in a lazy fashion on Lake Sammamish.
On Saturday, Kelly got me up early to do a little Barre3 – a combo of Pilates, Yoga and Ballet. I totally made it through the class, for which Kelly rewarded me with coffee. I felt alright the next day, but on Monday, man did everything hurt. Later that day, I met Dr. Rach & Jen for a walk around Green Lake. I thought that Percy would be tuckered out when we got back from our nearly 3 mile walk, but nope, not so much. I, on the other hand, was exhausted and treated myself with a nap. Just like these turtles that we saw on the lake:
Meanwhile, my west coast fam was hamming it up at Disney for Jordan’s birthday weekend!
On Saturday, I met up with Kelly and her parents at the dog park. I explained to them that I am trying to re-teach myself how to sneeze. The thing is, when I sneeze, I feel like my head is going to explode and my eyes might fall out of the socket. I told my mom this, and she was most unsympathetic. Lucas told me I need to stop putting my tongue on the roof of my mouth and instead say, A-CHOO! Sound simple, but I only sneeze once a day and so it’s really hard to remember before it’s too late!
After the park, I ran a bunch of much needed errands and finished up just in time to pick Kelly up for a photo session at the Arboretum. Here are some awesome shots, and also how Kelly became the Percy’s official photographer!
Now, if I could just remember to bring him treats next time, maybe he won’t be so huffy about being bossed about. J
I hope you have an amazing week!
