Thank goodness I had enough holiday projects that I could line up some scheduled blog posts, since I never like to announce on here when I'll be out of town. But we had a great trip in central Washington State, spending Christmas with my in-laws.
I hardly took any photos the whole trip. Mainly it was a lot of waking up early due to the time zone difference, working almost every day, staying up late to try to get myself switched over to Pacific time, lather, rinse, repeat. It was only about the last two days of our trip that I finally got used to the time difference, and now I'm back home, and have to switch times all over again. Let me tell you, jet lag is a bitch.
But one of the highlights of our trip, other than seeing family, friends, and playing with our friend's kitten, was on our flight from Dallas to Seattle. I grew up with a view of Mount Rainier, but have never, ever gotten to fly as close as we did on our flight there. Or else I have, but the view has always been obstructed by clouds and rain. It was a magically clear day for once, so I made good use of the opportunity to snap a few photos out the window!
Sigh, so pretty! But that doesn't mean I'd ever want to move back to Washington, since a clear day like we saw out our airplane window only happens a couple of times each month. On our way back through the Seattle airport it was grey and rainy, as is typical.
Now that we're back, we've both had to hit the ground running, even though we're pretty exhausted. Work deadlines and all that. Luckily it's a short week for us both this week and next week. I'm hoping now to have more time to catch up on things in blog-land, and to finish out WEverb11. Maybe over the long weekend I'll get some things done, like clean up all of the messes the kitties left for us when we were gone.
This is what I get for leaving wrapping paper, and boxes with packing material on the floor. They've gotten their revenge for us leaving them alone over Christmas!
(This is just one room, but basically the whole upstairs of our house has little bits of packing material everywhere. Guess the kitties made their version of Christmas snow!)
So I need to clean. And go grocery shopping. And do a million other things this weekend. Or maybe I'll just sleep. 'Cause jet lag is lame.
Did you have a good Christmas? Got any big plans this weekend?
