Gone Daddy, Gone

Whoa, I totally didn't see that coming.

The kiddo flew the coop, ran off to look for a place down in Cali.

OK, I mean I DID know he was going to be moving. He accepted a job down there and obviously he needs to find a place to live.

And buy furniture.


but I was totally sideswiped to find out he cashed in his CD and just took off without letting his dad or I know what his plans were.

I found out in a text message.

A Too Brief Respite

So the 3-day weekend was a much-needed respite from the last couple of weeks at work. Especially the visit to the lower falls near Mt St Helens.
Absolutely GORGEOUS.
There is nothing more soothing than the sound of water flowing over rock.

We're gearing up for another long & tedious travel period for work. I get upset just thinking about it, with so much other stuff going on right now.

The kiddo is going to move to California for work reasons and we won't be here to help him move, because of work.

My best friend in the entire universe is getting married and I can't be there, because of work.

My brother is having a change of command ceremony and we can't attend, because of work.

Sheesh, one common thread in all of those.
