Long story short: at 4 PM I purchased a one way ticket (see how impulsive I am?) on a 7:30 PM flight to Spokane. By 8:45 PM, Laura had picked me up at the airport and we sped to
Part of me wanted out of Seattle badly. Spokane sounded like a good place to be. I'm blessed to have my sister in town, holding down the "parental fort" (my Dad recently had day surgery and the general ongoing emotional needs of two nonagenarians remains significant). I was more than happy to surrender the "work" on to a sibling. Thanks, MM! I knew if hung out on Memorial Weekend in Sea-town, I'd be fretting and spinning about unable to read, garden, or pamper myself. I'd be cleaning the house. Sigh. No good. Much better to clean Laura's apartment in Spokane, I figured.
Laura and I had a fun first 24 hours together. Fodder for a followup post.
Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
