random notes

Nikki turned 15 over the summer and got her braces off. She also is the proud owner of her learner's permit and is now navigating the streets of Seattle, with me in the passenger seat. So, if you're in the city and you see a charcoal gray Subaru Forester, with an auburn haired girl driving and a woman with short dark hair and a stricken look on her face, beside her, that's us.

Derek turned 18 a couple of weeks ago. He's 6' tall and wears a size 12 shoe. I'm 5'4", so he's a great help getting things down from high spaces.

Zoey, our new kitty is like a puppy, she chews on things! Her favorite thing is ipod earbuds! We've lost 2 so far and now we have to put them away whenever they aren't in use.

Scout, our older cat, has irritable bowel syndrone. He's on medication for it and is doing better. He used to barf a lot! I always thought some cats just did that, but I mentioned it to the vet and she said that's what everyone used to think, but it usually is what Scout has. Who would have thought!

We had 5 racoons in our backyard the other day. Not just one or two, five! This is the city of Seattle, not rural at all! There's a Starbucks a block away, for heaven's sake! Crazy, but true.

I changed my banner to the Fall one I did last year. It's time, the kiddos will be back to school on the 9th. whooo-hooo! I'll miss sleeping in, though.

Nina, you and I are the exact same height! 5'4"ers UNITE! We're just shy of what's considered "short" and we're darn proud of it!
