It's the end of the world as we know it

TJ is convinced that the Apocalypse is upon us. For the second time this year, we got serious snow in Seattle. Right at rush hour, conveniently. There's about 2-3 inches on the ground (I know my East Coast friends are laughing about this "serious" snowfall) and people are abandoning their cars all over the roads and the traffic is horrendous.

TJ and I were smart this time and just walked home. Neither of us had our winter coats at work today but I had my gym clothes and a big sweater, and he had a very heavy flannel shirt and boots on. So it wasn't too bad. Kind of quiet, very pretty and much more relaxing than being stuck in traffic for 45 min trying to drive 1 mile.

I hope to get some good pictures of the house and dogs in the snow, especially since TJ hates the pictures I got of Peanut in the snow a few years ago.

And just in time for all this crappy weather, I got an amazing invitation from Kristin. Her family is going on a Caribbean cruise in April and she invited me. YAY! It starts and ends in Puerto Rico and goes to Martinique, Guadeloupe and St Kitts. I am soooo excited. I think Kristin and I will spend a couple of days before the cruise hanging out in Puerto Rico, which is lucky for me since Kristin actually speaks Spanish. YAY!

Now I'm just waiting for Alaska Airlines to find me a way to use my frequent flier miles for the airfare since Delta Airlines is being bratty about it. (Their program sucks - you can never use their miles unless you're willing to use double. Their "Saver" award is a scam.)

So now I need to figure out how to work some extra hours so I don't blow half my vacation by early April! I guess I might start working half days on Thursdays for the next couple of months.

Yay for vacations to warm places.


  1. Cruises rock!!! (haha I just read what I wrote!) Mike and I sailed western caribbean with Carnival with dental school friends and it was so much fun! Oh and we did a Hawaiian cruise for the honeymoon, too - Norwegian has really nice ocean liners but it rocked a lot (in a bad way!) You guys will have so much fun!

  2. No, I don't think it's the apocalypse. But the local news people and the way other people react makes me think *they* feel it's the apocalypse. ... For at least the 3rd time in 6 weeks.

    A regularly scheduled end-of-the-world? Who knew?


I love comments, so please leave me your thoughts. Thanks in advance!
