Here is something I saw online today that totally pissed me off. Can you guess what it is for?
It's for a divorce attorney in L.A., of course. This is just wrong and mean and horrible in SO many ways. I cannot even express to you how completely grossed out this makes me. Maybe because I actually love and trust my husband and I know he feels the same way. I just don't see how someone can make light of something that so many of us hold sacred. I'm not saying I'm perfect and never cheated on someone before, because I'm not and I have. I just haven't cheated on Jay because he is the one person in my life I can believe in and trust. And I know if either of us cheated, that would be broken.
Anyway....so much more to tell you about that doesn't make me pissed.
Of course, ya'll know Kenzie had her lovebug, Jack, over for a playdate yesterday morning. They came early enough for me to make them Monkey cakes (banana pancakes) and eggs and coffee and Kahlua for the mommies. Kenzie ran outside the minute she saw their van pull up and greeted him with a HUGE hug and kiss and they held hands all the way inside. They played while I finished up breakfast and talked with Liz (future mother-in-law). I have to say, they are freaking hilarious. Honestly, it is just so cute to see them play together. And both him and his sister, Gracie, are great kids. They are so polite, and I think it's adorable that they call me Mrs. Christie or Mrs. Ferris. I will only bore you with this one adorable picture, then I promise, I'll leave it alone for awhile.
So, tomorrow we are up at the asscrack of dawn to head up to Seattle and hang out with my family for the weekend, attend a bar-b-que and watch the Blue Angels perform. If you don't know who they are, here is a picture (I'm full of them today)......
It's a group of jets that do some pretty cool stunts. They also fly right over my mom's house, so they are hosting the lunch for our WHOLE family (about 50 of us). I'm not sure the whole gang is coming, but for the most part, we'll all be there. Anyway, the jets perform at the end of Seafair every year. And for those of you that don't know what Seafair is, it is a summer festival which involves the hydroplane races at Lake Washington.
In other HUGE news, we are moving to Seattle! We've been tossing the idea around for awhile, and finally made the decision to just do it. I am so very excited about this. I really miss my family, and I really want my kids to be able to grow up with their cousins, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and great-grandparents. We are pretty much alone down here, except for Jay's brother, Matt, and his wife, Mandy, and quite a few friends. And we'll miss them all, but the job opportunities are also much better up there. Plus, and this was a huge factor for Jay, they have a pretty big water park and roller coasters about 20 miles south of Seattle. And the fact that being that close to my family means more ALONE time with my husband. Which we need. If I want to have hot, sweaty sex with Jay, I can ditch the kids with their grandparents and pick them up in the morning. Or, if I don't want to cook dinner, I can call up my Nanna and she'll make some yummy meal for us. Awesome! I miss that so much.
I will totally miss Portland, I really have become a big old hippy Oregonian in the 7 1/2 years I've lived here. Once Jay has a job up there, we've rented a place, and it's all set and we can't back out, I'll tell you about some of my favorite things about it. I know that if I start to go over them, I will change my mind, and I really don't want to do that. It's time to make a change.
See, I leave you guys alone for a few days, and my whole world changes.
