[ black toenails ]

Just another Sunday afternoon lounging with the dogs. We've been catching up on our DVR and resting up for the week ahead. I caught the movie "Titanic" on TV...I usually HATE watching movies over and over, but Titanic is one I can watch every year or so and not get tired of it. I love the costumes:

I also made some delicious Thai food out of a's pretty much my favorite thing to make for myself when I'm home alone. I doctor it up with cilantro, lime juice, peanut butter, scrambled eggs, and shrimp. It's delish - especially with a RockStar to wash it down.

Yesterday, I spent the day in the Tri-Cities. I took my dad to the airport - he gets to spend this week in San Diego for a transit convention. He also gets to go to TIJUANA while he's there! We sent him with our order for all things Mexican. :) (kahlua, tequila, vanilla, Tylenol 3, tickets to Guanajuato!)

After I dropped him off, I went to Heritage to look for a Vera Bradley bag that I'm eyeing:

it's the small duffel in case you're wondering. :) They didn't have it...bummer...

Heritage had some WAY cute fall/Halloween decorations. I wish I had somewhere to put them! I also ran over to Craft Warehouse to pick up somethings that I needed to finish some Christmas presents I've been working on. I also found two new magazines that I didn't already have - so I got those to take with me to Spokane this week.

I met up with Jen and Jamie at Panda for lunch. I wish I could spend more time with them and their families. They are just such a great dose of reality for me. I love their attitudes and sense of humor. We had a great discussion - and I hope I didn't burden them too much with my trials.

After lunch, I met Grandma and Mom at Target - I surprisingly didn't need that much!! We got Starbucks then went to get our nails done. I got a pedicure and a fill. I forgot to bring my own nailpolish with me for my toes - I have worn the same color for about four years - it's called Kennebunk-port:

and I don't like to take the chance that the salon might not have the color so I always bring it with me. Well, I forgot, so this is what I ended up with:

I hope it people don't think I got it for Halloween - because I didn't. I think Melissa actually has a bottle of this color, so I got it so I could use her bottle of polish to touch it up.

Finally, Grandma treated us to an amazing dinner at PF Changs. I *heart* it there...Lettuce Wraps, Crispy Honey Chicken, Asian Pear Mojitos...the whole things is so delicious!!

On the way home we did a drive by Burden Blvd to see Sullivan's tribute to Bob Koch! :) Thanks so much for your support, you guys. You don't know how much it is appreciated!!

I need to pack this afternoon - I am heading to Spokane tomorrow morning at 6am for a COE training. The COE (Collection of Evidence) is a hoop the state has put in place for students to jump through if they aren't able to pass the WASL. It's pretty much impossible, but I'm going to spend two days with four co-workers learning how to do it. Wednesday, I'm going to a College Board workshop at Gonzaga - which I'm looking forward to, because I get to see the counselors I interned for in grad school. It's the only time I ever get to see them! Also, while I'm in Spokane, I get to see my cousin Craig and my dear friend Jody.

I would post some pictures from the football game on Friday night, but there wasn't anything worth taking a picture of since we can't stunt...thank you very much to our wonderful Athletic Director.

Instead, I'll leave you with this adorable bundle of joy...

...she makes me so happy everyday...and her mama isn't half bad either...:) i'll miss you guys this week!!

p.s. thanks for your kind words everyone - things still aren't great, but hopefully a few days away will help clear my head. i appreciate your thoughts and prayers. i'm not used to this - feeling uncertain about my family, dreading work each day, questioning people's actions and intentions, just not feeling myself. anyway - thanks again for friends.
