Busy Saturday

I am going to try and make this decently short because I feel sort of tired!

This morning I went to the airport and got to see a familiar face!  My friend Cherie, who we met in Georgia, had a layover here in Seattle before she headed up to Alaska (where her husband is currently stationed).  Here is a photo of us:
It was great to see her, gave me a little inclination to head up north for a small trip.  I think it would be fun to at least visit Alaska... Maybe see if I thought it would be interesting to live there?  Nonetheless it was good to catch up over some breakfast!

It seems as though "busy" is in the vocabulary a lot more this time of year, and I'm trying to keep truckin!  I'm not one to go Christmas shopping on weekends (hating the craziness at the malls), so I stuck  to other Christmas-like things.  I mailed out ALL of the Christmas cards today.  If you don't get one and you want one, PLEASE let me know.  I have a ton of them, ha.  I also sent out photos of Jesse that he got professionally done before he left.  He told me exactly where he wanted the photos to go, so I finally got them in the mail today.  It feels good not to have those to worry about.

We went to the house this afternoon (I made a trip to clothing and sales, along with the PX) and opened a couple of boxes.  Dad is well on his way putting much of my furniture together, I know that it would help a LOT more if we could find all the hardware we need for the bed and futon.  Dandy that we can't find anything - we're going to have to make a special trip to the hardware store and get screws - among other things.

We got home, ate, I talked to Jesse, and that was about it.  Jesse got a photo with Goldsworth, Doyle, and Rathman - all IBOLC guys that are currently serving overseas.  They all happened to be in the same spot at the same time, which is truly awesome because I know how nice it is for all of them to have each other!

That is all for now, enjoy your weekend!  Less than two weeks until Christmas.... Thank GOD!
