Black Friday

I was up at 6 AM this morning after falling asleep almost instantly last night, and sleeping soundly through the night. Doug had to go into work this morning and he left around 6:30 AM. People finally started getting up around 7:30 AM. We had some bagels for breakfast and spent most of the morning just lazing around.

I upgraded my return flights home tomorrow night. I am wait-listed on the flight from Seattle to San Francisco, even though it looks as though there are plenty of first class seats. I am confirmed in first class on the flight from San Francisco to Baltimore. I have a 4 hour layover in San Francisco, and I plan on having a good dinner somewhere in the airport there to kill some of the time. (You know what would be a good idea: movie theaters in airports. I could go and see the new James Bond movie or something to kill the time while I am waiting for my flight.)

Doug is going to try and get off work at 2 PM. Mom and Rachel just went out to get some lunch for us. We are having dinner tonight at about 8 PM at Daniel’s Broiler in Seattle. I am very much looking forward to that meal. For some reason, I’ve felt hungry day.

Mom wants to go shopping and Rachel may want to go too, but I’ve been trying to convince them not to. It would be insane to be at a mall today. You’re liable to end up crying.

Thanksgiving dinner

We had a great Thanksgiving dinner yesterday, courtesy of Doug and Rachel. Rachel’s sister Theresa and her son Alex were over to have dinner with us as well. We had a turkey, some delicious mashed potatoes, gravy, salad, macaroni and cheese, stuffing, new potatoes and onions. It was all delicious. After dinner, we had a birthday celebration for Ruby, who will turn 3 years old on December 1. We had pumpkin pie and birthday cake, and Ruby got to open some presents.

We also had an iChat video chat with jen_ashlock and jkashlock since they were in New York and couldn’t be here for Thanksgiving.

I am both stuffed and exhausted. I was ready to go to bed at 7 PM (after having gotten up at 1 AM PST this morning)! But it looks like I’ll be off to bed in the next hour or so.

In Seattle

My flight got into Seattle on time, and since I arrived at Doug and Rachel’s, about 4 hours ago, we’ve been hanging out, and talking while preparing Thanksgiving dinner. I finally got to meet Carson in person and he looks just like Doug did when he was 8 months old. It’s uncanny! Looks like we’ll be having our dinner around 4:30 or 5 PM. Then there is a video conference with jen_ashlock and jkashlock later on this evening.

Technology!

Happy 5 year anniversary Doug & Rachel!

Today is Doug and Rachel’s 5 year anniversary. Five years ago today we were all hanging out on Catalina Island, having a blast. I just wanted to wish you guys a very happy anniversary.

Happy Birthday, Rachel!

Today is my sister-in-law, Rachel’s, birthday. I want to say it’s one of those big birthday’s (I won’t say which), but I may be mistaken. At least the last time I saw her, she didn’t look a day over 25.

Anyway, Happy Birthday, Rachel! I hope you have a great day.
