My mom flew back to Utah yesterday. We miss her.
We crammed as many touristy things into her two weeks in Seattle as possible.
Here they are, uncaptioned and out of chronological order because I'm both lazy and tired:
I miss my mom. She made these first weeks in Seattle much easier to bear. And as a bonus she gave me an excuse to get the touristy crap out of the way so that I am free to sit around my apartment and think about how warm it must be in St. George.
I'm trying not to let Seattle win. I will not let these clouds get the better of me! But you know what? Sunshine is kind of important to me. I never realized how important it is until this morning when I stumbled out of bed, went to the window, twisted open the blinds, and cried. Literally. Tears falling out of my eyes because it was raining.
They were not tears of joy, just to be clear.
They were the tears of someone who dreams of summer all winter long and has moved to the Land of Perpetual February.
One time Macey was in an extra complain-y mood and I told her that for every complaint she had to tell me one thing she was grateful for, so I suppose I owe you this:
1. I'm grateful that I don't live in Egypt.
2. The treadmills at our gym have TVs on them, so I can watch Three's Company or Guthy Renker programming to my heart's content while I run. I guess that's all that's on at 8:30 in the morning.
3. The Mary Tyler Moore show is on Hulu.
4. Trader Joe's pre-packaged crunchy slaw salad. I love you.
5. These guys:
