Getting started . . .

Tonight I started my Library Science course through UAF.  I am a bit cranky that I have to take a 100 level course, but so be it.  I will be writting a research paper, topic of my choice, I do like that part.  I have an idea in mind, but still want to think about it a bit before I submit my topic.

The wallet has been found

Finally!  The funniest part is that it was with us the entire time that we were gone.  It was in an outside pocket on Bob's carry on that is made for umbrellas.  It took three days to find it and we were so lucky that it didn't fall out.  The pocket is designed to slide your umbrella into so it is open about 6 inches at the bottom.  Woowee lucky.

Our weekend in Seattle . . .

to see the Tigers!!!
We had a wonderful time, lots of baseball and browsing.  We stayed right downtown in Pioneer Square and explored much of downtown Seattle.  What a great town.  It is set up easily for getting around and seeing the sites.  We decided that we will travel to a new ballpark each year to see the Tigers play and explore a new town.

Thank goodness for passports . . .

As we were getting ready to run out the door at 6 am to catch our 7 am flight, Bob discovered that he couldn't find his wallet.  He had it last night and now it's gone.  After ten minutes of frantic searching we grab his passport and headed to the airport.  We then stood in the longest line I have ever seen at our airport and made it in time to walk on the plan, no waiting.

Gifts from my Auntie . . .

What sweet, and salty, treats from home.  It was fun to come home and find and unexpected surprise in my mailbox.  Thank you at Ruthie!  It reminded me of how you always had raviolies and Quick in your house for me.

"Are those bacon?"

That's what a sixth grade boy asked me today about my earrings. 
I didn't reply right away and then, "you know, I really like bacon.  But no, they are not bacon."

Now I'm cranky!

So I had send that I liked the new blogger, but now I am not so sure.  I just tried to load some pictures and you can't download from your computer or a memory card anymore.  What is that?  Not happy.  Did I miss something?

Dinner in the park

It was so nice out tonight that Bob and I went to subway and then went to Marine Park to enjoy our little bit o' time in the sun. 
This week is SBAs, so school is a bit, well, just different.  The students that I am working with are testing at different times so it's a bit to manage.  As long as I don't forget their time slot I am okay.
Bob and I leave for Seattle on Friday morning and since I keep talking about it, you know that we are excited!

A night in Seattle - April 7th

Tonight I spent in Seattle, before catching a fight to Orlando in the morning.  I ate dinner at Denny's, soup, sandwhich, drink and a sundae all for $10.00 - unbelievable!  Then I went to the tiny hotel gym and a bit of a walk, it is so nice out, couldn't miss being outside for a bit.  After, curled up in my kingsize bed with 5 pillows - what a treat.

I will post a few pics later, need to download them onto this itty bitty computer and there isn't internet in my room ...

How Bob spent his birthday

First, he drove me to the dentist and then had to walk to work, which believe me, I heard about.  I left today for a conference and needed the truck.  It really wasn't that far of a walk, just the point that it was his birthday.  Then he worked.  After work he was going to treat himself to a bit of Chinese, but went he went to Foodland (yes, that's where we get our Chinese from and it's yummy), they were out.  So he ended up with McDonald's.
He did say that he received many b-day wishes and was happy about that.
Next weekend our b-days will be celebrated, we are heading to Seattle for a bit of Tiger baseball.  Both of us are so excited.

On a work trip . . .

That's right, Molly is on a work trip.  Usually it's Bob who gets to travel all about Alaska on adventures.  I am headed to Orlando for a PSRP Conference.  I am pretty excited to see what the conference is all about.  I had a hard time deciding which presentations that I wanted to go to, there were many good ones to choose from.  I am also exctied to get another chance to see my sister.  She is going to come over and stay with me for the weekend and we will get to hang-out in the evenings.

While I'm waiting . . .

It is that time of year where I am working on the Eighth Grade Dance and I have Parent Meetings/Decoration Making Nights.  This is one of them and now I am waiting for Bob to get off work and come and get me.  These are the times when I do wish we had a second car, but they don't last long and I am always glad that we made the decision to scale down.  So I figured what the heck, I should blog.  I actually have all sorts of things that I have been wanting to blog about:  new rainboots (that are now 1.5 months old, the projects we have been working on, my travel plans for April, getting a cell phone and so on, but never seem to make the time.  Well, maybe now that I will be waiting for Bob from time to time, I should start back at it.
Last week was Spring Break and I spent the weekend working at the Dog to start getting ready for the tourist season.  It is a nice change to work there on breaks.  I enjoy the energy of downtown and seeing how happy and excited, for the most part, that people are to be in Alaska.  I feel really good about what we got accomplished last week.  Now we just start filling in the pieces.  This year is pretty cool for me, because I got to pick some of the styles that we are going to carry.  Here's hoping that they do well . . .
I did take the weekend off to relax and enjoy some quiet moments with Bob.  That was the last weekend we will have together for a while.  He switches this week to having Friday and Saturday off, so these next two months are always a bit difficult for us to find time together.  I usually work on Saturdays for at least half the day.  But summer vacation will be here soon and when he is not at Red Dog, we will again have the same days off.
Well, I guess I kind of fibbed about us not having days off together for a couple months . . . we are heading to Seattle this month to see the Tigers!  WOOOOOOHOOOOOO!!!  We are so excited, if you couldn't tell.  We redeemed some airlines miles and splurged on the ball tickets - it should be a super fun time.  It's been, yicks, four years since we've been to a ballgame.  Plus we are staying right in the heart of downtown Seattle, I can't wait to explore.
