I believe I can fly.

Break out the champagne, two posts in two days!  All 5 of my readers are spoiled rotten!!

First, I would like to start by letting everyone know an update. After a rough couple days Lane seems to have snapped out of her doggy-depression.  I think she realized her new BFF wasn’t coming back anytime soon.  Some motherly advice, “It’s for the best Lane, just move on, you’re too young to date!”  There is also a very tiny slight possibility that she was just sleeping for 2 days straight on the couch to recover from the craziness that was last weekend.  I may or may not have been doing the same thing.

Now back to the post at hand.  After writing about all my amazing friends who have shown my sofa some action this past year, I thought to thinking I needed to do a little “Oh the places I’ve been” post.  I must definitely believe I can fly cause I feel like sometimes that all I’ve been doing this year.  Starting in mid-January here is a short (or not so short) run-down of the places I’ve been this year.

  1. Arlington, VA
  2. Waikiki, HI
  3. Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
  4. Dallas, TX
  5. Clarksville, TN
  6. Virginia Beach, VA
  7. Washington, DC
  8. Palmdale, CA
  9. San Diego, CA
  10. Virginia Beach, VA

I’d say that’s not too shabby for eight months.  Monday I fly to Virginia Beach, VA once again.  I’ll be on the ground for a whole 24 hours before flying back.  Sometimes I think I must be crazy.  There is another trip in the works, a big trip, to top every trip this year, even the free two-week trip to Hawaii and the All-Inclusive “adult spring break” to Cabo, Mexico.  Details hopefully coming soon.

 

Sofa Action 2012

Wow, has it really been March since I blogged?  There isn’t enough space on the blog-o-sphere to fill you in on everything that my crazy self has gotten into.  This year, 2012, year of the Dragon (in Korea),the year I turn 30 (gasp!) has also been the year of visitors!  As in friends visiting Seattle, hooray!  I can’t believe it’s almost September, this year has totally flown by, but maybe that’s what happens when you’re having fun.  As my most recent house-guest departed yesterday, and we hugged and said our goodbyes I thought “Wow, it only took three and half years to get people to come visit me in Seattle”, but the friends who have shown my sofa some action in 2012 are the most amazing.  Weird to think that only one of these people was I friends with prior to moving to Seattle.  One of them I knew but was not “friends” with, one I only met 2 years ago but we became instant friends, and one I just met earlier this year.  I was totally excited to have all these friends visit, and I can’t imagine not having them in my lives.

I’ve lived alone for 7 years now and I do enjoy my independence, but every time a sofa-sleeping-friend packs up and leaves I get totally lonely.  I’m fairly certain that Lane has gone into a deep depression after my most recent friend departed as she hasn’t squeaked her lion toy since he drove away Monday afternoon.  I keep telling her that it’s ok, maybe one day she can go visit him but she just looks at me sadly then go right back to sleep.  She may just be tired, but I am sticking by my diagnosis of doggy-depression over finding and losing her BFF all in a matter of 3 days.  Yes, these are the things going on in my life these days.

I’m so glad all these friends came to visit, especially when things around here are about to get CRAZY…but more on that in the next post.  Like always I’ll end this with a big fat empty promise to start blogging every single day now, but let’s be honest, if you get another post in the next month just consider yourself spoiled.
