Last day of NaBloPoMo and I can’t believe I completed the whole thing, albeit with one minor blip.
We’re now in Bellevue for Wes’ work meetings, which means I get to relax and shop. Not a bad deal.
I had planned on catching up on the 365 Day Photo Project, which is now four weeks behind, but that’s probably not going to happen because I decided to sync my phone and then accidentally started importing all photos and now I’ve got to get them all off which is taking forever.
It’s our last night in Boise and we’re spending a relaxing evening watching a rerun of Hawaii 5-0, which basically means we’re all sitting on the couch hiding behind our electronics so as not to notice how badly written this show is. We’ve had an incredibly fun trip but I’m looking forward to three days of silence and reading and hopefully getting some photos downloaded and posted while we’re in Seattle. I get a little sad each time I leave Boise, especially now that I live in Hawaii because there’s never a plan for future visits. It could be another year until I see my brother and his girlfriend again and probably my parents as well. Spending time with them this past week makes me wish a little bit that we lived closer together.
Last night we poured a bottle of wine into wine glasses that hold a bottle of wine and played Catchphrase. There was much laughing and a lot of farting and a little bit of silly string. It would be nice to be closer than a twelve-hour two-plane trip to our families.
I nearly forgot about yesterday’s post but at the last minute I put up a hasty post while out at the bar. Sure it was today in Boise, but it was still yesterday in Hawaii so I’m calling it good.
Boise is cold, but not nearly as cold as I was preparing myself for, which is probably a good thing. Instead of spending the week bitching about the weather we’re actually able to enjoy the weather. It also makes it easier for us to believe that coming back to cold weather after Hawaii won’t be as difficult a transition as we imagine. Yeah, we’re probably kidding ourselves but I’m going to let this one slide or I’ll never want to come back. And I really want to come back.
My brother and his girlfriend are in town, too, but only one set of friends came back so it’s been less stressful than our visits in the past have been. Instead of having to deal with everyone’s schedule we’ve been able to relax more and spend a lot of time just with family. Last night was our big friend night out and it was just a really good time with a few groups of people who don’t know each other but we all fit.
We still have two days left here and then we move on to Seattle, where we’ll see more friends and adorable babies and I’ll leave wondering when we will finally make it back to the mainland. Seeing friends and family once a year just isn’t cutting it anymore. Sure the beach is nice, but nothing beats the squirrels and leaves falling.
I love Idaho. #
Ps – its still yesterday in Idaho.
Thanksgiving in Idaho. I’m thankful for a house full of family and delicious food.
