Not much to say

I got home on Friday night, couldn't sleep, and Matt and I got into a bit of a spat. That was fun. Everything's worked out though, and I can tell you that this was my last multiple week trek away from my husband. We do not do well being apart for so long, and it makes it that much harder to live together in such a small space.

This weekend I was lazy and still haven't unpacked, though I did clean a little. I still haven't been sleeping well, maybe because this bed is my 4th in 1 week (I know, I just can't stop sleeping around). Matt is stressed with final projects and the last few weeks of classes coming up. Competitions, pitching projects, and all kinds of writing.

Oh, graduation is June 6, and supposedley Al Pacino will be there as the AFI lifetime achievement award winner. I'm so proud of Matt's upcoming graduation and that we get to be in the same vicinity as Al Pacino!

Keeping In Touch

I'm in Montana! And no wonder it's called "big sky country" - it really is huge here! It's raining and snowing, believe me when I tell you I'm freezing. But Mel keeps her apartment warm which is a blessing. Uncle Terry (Sharon's husband) passed his cold on to me (thanks alot!) so I've been sniffling, sneezing, and Mel has been a very gracious hostess with cold medicine and tea. Tonight spaghetti, garlic bread, and red wine is on the menu, followed by a movie and then nyquil! :)

I've made a resolution to keep in better touch, through emails and calls. After this summer I got tired of those and just preferred to talk in person. But I need to get back to where I was, even if it's just a little something. That is my promise to you.

Off to Spokaloo

Tomorrow I'm off to Spokane. My aunt and uncle's place doesn't have the best internet connection, so there may not be updates for awhile. Didn't want you to worry. :) When I get to Montana, since Mel is going to school, I'm sure I can find a computer to update everyone.

Have a great rest of the week and stay warm! It's freezing!

Adventures in the Pacific Northwest

Highlights include:

Spending a night in Aberdeen to visit Jeff and Tina and their two little girls. We stayed at a lovely bed and breakfast. Our room had just been remodeled and had a new king bed. Fabulous!

On our way back to Puyallup, we stopped and had lunch with Matt's grandparents which was great fun. We laughed and listened to stories. It was great to see them.

Today we went to Catherine's baptism and are now officially godparents! She is a delight and we plan on spoiling her rotten.

This last Friday, there was a last minute gathering of friends at the house where Don, Cindy, Emily and Matt live (who's house is it?). We got to see so many people that we would have otherwise missed so thank you to those who were able to come. We loved seeing you! (Jenny, you look wonderful!)

Matt leaves tomorrow afternoon, Paige is driving me back to Seattle, and I'll get some time with my Dad and Katie before I take off for Spokane on Wednesday. Then I'll be off to Montana next week for a few days before going back to Burbank. I can't believe I'm over halfway done with my "tour" but I am enjoying (almost) every minute of it.
