I thought I should give you a wee little update. I know I haven’t been posting much since I got to Seattle, and really that’s for 2 reasons.
1. I’ve had a nasty cold! After having years of good health, and vegan super powers to knock any cold out of my body in a matter of hours (except for when they made me get the flu shot last year and I was like death for 3 days), I succumbed to a terrible sickness the 1st week I got here. The fact that I haven’t been taking vitamins for weeks now, coupled with the move and climate change, left me vulnerable. So there have been many days that I just stayed in bed and drank tea all day.
2. I like writing blog posts on my lap top. Oh, and my lap top battery died the 2nd day I was here. So, while the battery/charger issue has now been addressed, I haven’t had wifi, so I’ve been internetting via phone & ipad. I just find it so clumsy to write a great review, with all the proper hyperlinks and such, without the aid of a real keyboard and mouse. In fact, I’m only writing you all this because I (thankfully) have a slideout keyboard on my phone! 🙂 So the posts should be coming fairly soon.
I’m flying back to Florida tonight, and arriving very early tomorrow morning, so I will be able to knock out a few while I’m staying at my parents’. Saturday, I’m picking up Thomas from the airport! I haven’t seen him since I left the 30th, so it’s kind of a big deal for me. He’s in Vegas right now, working on the sets for the Latin Grammys. (Thursday night!) Sunday, we leave on our big road trip across the country with our stuff, that ends up right back at the very place I am now. I can only hope that I can finally kick this bug out soon! Being sick for 2 weeks is just craziness!
Also, I included a pic of a pretty tree that I thought was unique, from one of my walks downtown. And of course, you recognize my wrinkly little kitten, Ganon, down here looking so grown up and handsome! He’s going to be staying with our friend until we get back, and we will miss him. (Of course, he’ll be having a ball, stalking her three adult cats!)
Stay tuned! We will be hitting New Orleans, Austin, Tuscon, Cabazon, San Diego, Santa Monica, LA, Bakersfield (for lunch with Jenna!), and San Francisco before we get back to Seattle. So let me know if you have any recommendations for those cities!
