It all started Friday morning waking up at 3:30am to take Gabe to the airport so he could catch a 6am flight. Hmm, what does one do at 4:30am after dropping him off at the airport ... I drove to the furthest point of my territory to make my early morning useful. I pulled in to Aberdeen (which is almost 3hrs from home with traffic) at 6:30am and realized I still had 2hrs to burn before the clinic opened, so I went to Starbucks and cranked out a ton of emails! I figured I could sleep later and enjoyed accomplishing so much when I would just be waking up.
After what seemed like the longest day ever, I got my hair done (yay for being blonde again), and came home to my pups and my best friends two wiener dogs. I took care of them this weekending while she was out of town, and it was just a hoot to have four dogs shadow me around my house. They all fought for my lap since three of the four are lapdogs :)
I was lucky enough to see my other bestie on Friday and Saturday, which I just loved!! Katie and her 3 week old punkin' Caleb had the brilliant idea for a pedi, and it was exactly what we needed. And, I told her she could be my surrogate because no one would have ever guessed she just had a little one :)
This weekend has been really quiet and much needed, if I say so myself. Although, it's kind of weird because I like to go go go and had multiple opportunities to go out in Seattle, attend the Freemond Solice Festival, go to brunch with friends, etc ... and it's not like me to decline a get together.
But, I learned two things about myself ... Independence is a very valuable characteristic that I have, but I missed my husband and depend on him more than I was aware of. Our lives revolve around each other, and this weekend I kept wanting him to be there with me to go to crossfit, watch a movie, eat meals with, take the dogs to the park, and just sit on the couch with. But instead it was me and four dogs ....
And this post wouldn't be complete without me documenting why I really needed Gabe. This just cracks me up because he always makes waffles on the weekends and I make the eggs. Well, I attempted the waffles this morning, and me-oh-my, do they not look retarded!!!! I sent this picture to Gabe, and he said, "Haha, you need your man to make them!"
I love you sug and am so thankful we have each other!
Can't wait to meet you at the beach!!!
