k.d., Lyle, Francine, the Big Band, and Rain

Yesterday, I flew home from Orlando. It was a pretty grueling trip. I got up at 4:30 a.m. to get to my 6:15 flight and got to Seattle at 11:30, which was actually eight hours after leaving Orlando. I decided it would be a good idea to go to the Super Mall in Auburn since we were so close anyway. Of course, it was another 20 minutes south of the airport.

By the time we got home around 2:30, I realized I had already been up over 12 hours. I was tired. I ended up getting a tiny bit of napping in, but not much before we left for the k.d. lang/Lyle Lovett concert at the Chateau Ste Michelle winery in Woodinville.

Did I mention the weather in Seattle this week? It's been raining a bunch. Last night, there was .3 inches of rain. It doesn't seem like much unless you're sitting outside in it. I was going on hardly any sleep and getting soaked while watching a really good concert. I was pruny by the time we decided to leave, which was only about half-way through Lyle Lovett's set. We really enjoyed k.d. lang's set, but I just couldn't sit in the rain any more once the temperature started to drop.

The good news is that I was with the DH and I really like his company. We also met Rick and Cathy there. Rick works with the DH and we have a nice time with them whenever we go anywhere.

Here's to being home again!

Welcome home, bummer about the concert. My boy has been asking to go to "uncle packick and uncle nowelo's house" I think that means you guys. I wish we lived closer. Maybe you could try to come here on business!?
