“With so little sleep at least you’d think I’d find some peace in my dreams in my dreams; but my mind still winds up on the same thing, the same scene, the same themes”


I definitely think I’ve used this song as a title before. Oh well. We’ll all survive 😀

Things are still incredibly busy but I love it. This last week our friends Lauren, Gene and Sidney came to visit. They were here for about 24 hours, so though the visit was short it was a lot of fun. We played games, went for a couple walks and hung out. We took them to MOX Boarding House  for dinner. We played SuperFight! and enjoyed some time with good company.

Once we came back, we played Sushi Go, Exploding Kittens, and Coup. We also re-introduced Gene to the Lion King on my Super Nintendo. He and Sidney played it for a while, and we all went to bed.

The next day, we went for a walk down to the local pastry shop, Belle Pastry. After breakfast we walked home, played some more games (Sidney and Gene played WiiU, and Lauren and I played Sushi Go.) Then we went to Uwajimaya and for a walk at the Bellevue Botanical Gardens. Once we returned home it was time for them to pack up and head up north to visit their friend Elisabeth.

I am so glad they were able to join us for the short time they were here. I wish it were longer, but now its our turn to visit them! I hope that one day this year we’ll be able to fly to Denver and spend a couple days with them. You forget how wonderful people are when you only get to video chat with them once a month.

Then, the next day, we had our friends Tim and Caroline over for a game night. We played Coup, and Sushi Go with them. Caroline had to leave early but we also played RhinoHero and Love Letter.

Mitchell and I also played a round of Card Wars this week.

Catch up…

Last Thursday, I video chatted with my dear friend, Lauren. It’s always so nice to catch up with her and see how things are doing. I truly do miss having her nearby, but it’s wonderful that thanks to technology I can see and talk to her whenever we want. After we had our “google hangout” Mitchell, kitten and I hung out on the couch for a little while and watched some Netflix.

Friday, I took the youngest I nanny, the stuffed turtle she stole from my car (His/her name is Purple Purple…you can see him bottom rightish.) out for breakfast. She wasn’t feeling so hot so shortly after this photo she went from smiley to grumpy… which changed as soon as she heard the words “going to target.” She loves that place as much as any other female haha.

Friday evening, we went over to our friend Tim’s house, for games and dinner. Mitchell and I stopped at Uwajimaya beforehand and picked up some of our favorite snacks. We had a fun time and played some fun games!

Saturday I went out to coffee with some ladies I met through a facebook group… we meet up once a month and catch up. It was really nice, afterwards I went to Bellevue Square Mall with one of them, we walked around, met her husband and daughter for lunch and talked some more, they are such a cute little family, and I really enjoyed talking with their 2 year old daughter. After I came home and hung out on the couch with my Kitten. Here she is above being all sorts of adorable.

It was such a warm and beautiful day, we sat on the beach, walked around for a while looked at the sea-life, and then went back to their place for some delicious fish tacos! It was such a wonderful way to spend our sunday and end the weekend, I didn’t even dread today as much as I normally do 🙂

I’ll post tonight’s photo with tomorrow’s because it’s late and I need go go to bed! I hope it’s sunny again tomorrow though, because I love going for walks with the kids!
