February > January

Is January over yet? I have things to do and they are all taking place in February. You see, first is my birthday which is next week. Birthdays are always good. The following week I am heading to Seattle for a few days to visit a friend. I am staying on Bainbridge Island this year which will require a short ferry ride. I understand that Bainbridge Island is a nice place with a shopping area and stuff. I am more excited about the ferry ride than shopping, though.

I am moving into a house at the end of February and I am currently spending an enormous amount of time planning and dreaming about this house. It’s a 3br/2ba house with a fenced yard which means I might be able to get a dog. Might.

I am obsessing about some things I want to do, including rehabbing the bathrooms, building a workbench in the basement and then making other things. I like to make things and this house will give me the space to do so. I want to be the queen king of DIY. Of course, I can’t do anything until I close on this house. AT THE END OF THE MONTH. I hope I can make it the next 30 days.

For now, I am stuck in January, about to begin packing, and dreaming about February.

I’m leaving on a jet plane…

So, I booked my flight to Seattle today. I managed to get a direct flight, with no stops or layovers, both ways, which I thought was pretty impressive for the price! I’ll probably spend the next three weeks researching Seattle and Vancouver and figuring out what I want to do once I get there. We could spend our days shopping at Target and watching movies every night and I could care less. I definitely want to hit the bar, chill out, and have a good time.

This is going to be me and Katie in 22 days!

Spending my 30th out of town!

Plans are set! I am going to Seattle & Vancouver for my birthday. My friend Katie is going to host and and deliver a “day of surprises!” I’m pretty excited to go northwest, but more excited to see Katie and get the hell out of St. Louis.

I’ve been to Seattle before, way back in 1998, and I remember a little bit about the place, but not much.

Hopefully, Katie will give me a refresher tour and show me the digs.

I’m counting the days.
