Some Thursday Musing

Howdy everyone, its been awhile!

Work has been crazy, and so has boat life!

We are getting ready to pull the boat out of the water to paint the bottom and the hull. The weather around here has not been nice! I think Washington is beautiful but this weather! Oh my! One minute its sunny, the next its pouring down rain! We can't get any of our prep work done! Cross your fingers that we can get this hunk painted and this monkey off our back!


So i switched jobs for a couple months, instead of the food court, I was doing the morning stocking. I had to be at work at 5:15! It was hard getting up at 4:00 am! But I got accustomed to it pretty fast, so I got home around 2:00 or so.

Let me tell you what I got some pretty good pictures of the happenings in the Harbor!

I love this old man and his dog, who row around the harbor all day!

I just thought this was the neatest boat!


My mother-in-law made my husband and I the most gorgeous quilt as a "boat warming" present. She spent a few weeks working on it and surprised me with it in March. I love it! 

This is the back, she always names and signs them.


I know easter was a while ago, but i had to put some pictures of my wonderful nephews on here!
We went to my sister-in-laws church, then went over for brunch!

I was trying to get a picture with Joseph but he was too busy playing video games with my brother-in-law Steve.


I hope everyone is having a good start to their summer!!

Going Bye Bye...

Not me!  no worries I am not going anywhere

But my doggie Charlie loves to go Bye Bye in the Corvette...

I've been wanting to drive the Vette to work, but we haven't been able to because of Charlie, but we have a solution!

A Quilt! I don't know why I didn't think of that before!

So now he is loving it!

He does get a little bored waiting for school buses though...

Just a note to say

That I love my husband. I really truly do. I know I am young, we both are young. But I have never ever felt this strongly about someone.
He is my best friend. I tell him everything, he tells me everything. I am so grateful for him, he puts through a lot of my stuff.

I know I still have a lot of growing up to but he is so patient with me. I never knew this kind of loved exsisted. Travis is most definetly not one of those blundering husbands you see on TV, in fact he is the one that keeps me in check! Not that I am putting myself down, I just know he is the more organzied one!

He took such good care of me while I was healing from my ovarian cyst burst. He held my hand when I got my very first IV. I couldn't have down it without him. He even bought me heat packs, and got me a biscuts and gravy breakfast from the best diner in town, even held me hair back when I threw it all up.


Why do you love your husband or signifcant other?

Dancing the Night Away!

So Valentine's Day was so amazing! We celebrated it a day early though, since we both worked on Sunday.

Ever since we got married we wanted to try dancing together, but our schedules wouldn't allow it. Needless to say when we got the chance we jumped on it.

We looked everywhere for places to go here in the Sound, and we found one! It was called the Red and White Ball. It was a combination of everything! Swing, Rumba, Cha-Cha, Salsa, thank goodness there was a lesson before the dancing! I have two left feet, so I was grateful that Travis has lots of patients.

We had a blast! We will most definitely be doing that again!

There was a man there that saw us struggle a little bit so he told about this place in Olympia the would teach a beginner's swing class then 3 hours of dancing. We decided to give it a try. I picked it up a lot better than the rumba we learned at the red and white ball.

Sorry if this post is a little jumpy, I am on pain pills because yesterday I had an ovarian cyst burst. I went to the ER early Tuesday morning, not sure of what my extreme pain was. The Doctor ran a bunch of test and did a CAT scan and found A LOT of blood in my lower abdomen from the burst cyct. I am still in a lot of pain and can barely walk, but I am improving.

This is becoming a habit

A lot has happened over the past week! I wish I could’ve posted more, but time doesn’t allow it!

On Saturday we finally went Trail Riding. It was perfect weather too, sunny and semi-warm. So we loaded up the bikes and drove the 45 minutes to Belfair. There were so many people there too; I guess everyone had the same idea we did! We had the fear that it was going to be too crowed and we’d run into people on the trails. Thankfully Travis rode on ahead of me to make sure I didn’t hit anyone or anyone hit me. We only ran into a few other riders and few Quad-riders other than that it was a nice day of riding!

The trails were perfect, just wet enough that we didn’t slide around in the dry clay and dry enough that we didn’t get stuck in the mud. Needless to say after our long day of riding we were soaking wet and muddy and so were the bikes.

This week I have 4 days off! I am so happy, I need the little vacation. But one day was cut short because they called me into work, one of the girls got strep and my supervisor needed to go to the hospital. I can’t leave my crew in a lurch so I went in for a few hours to help out. And on my way home last night I heard a ton of sirens heading to the historic harbor where we live. Anyway I was heading home and the road was blocked off, the cop was setting up road flares when I drove down there. I thought maybe there was a big accident; the roads were pretty wet so I didn’t doubt it at all. But as I went on another side road to go around the mess, I noticed this little bistro was engulfed in flames. This bistro was around for 108 years. We could actually see the flames from the boat when I finally got there. What a terrible night for the owner and her daughters.

I hope everyone has a great Valentine’s Day. I am not sure what we are doing; every time I bring it up Travis always tells me that we’ll talk about it later. He is so sneaky! But I will take lots of pictures and update when it’s all over!

Happy Thursday

It's strange after not blogging for a while, you forget what to blog about!

I need to get the ball rolling again!


So the weather in Washington has been amazing! 54 degrees in February! I love it, and no snow this winter. I was so worried that we were going to get snow because we bought a Corvette but nope!

Although we have gotten unusually warm winter, it still has been rainy and gloomy. But every once in a while we will get a sunny, blue day! Tuesday was one of those days. It was a beautiful day and we planned to go trail riding on dirt bikes on Wednesday.

So we got everything together and we were set our alarms early...and it was pouring Wednesday morning! We just laughed and snuggled back into bed. No really knows what the weather is supposed to do!

But yesterday was such a nice relaxing day, we got up at like 11 and we had breakfast, took the puppy for a walk and snuggled into the couch.

5 o'clock rolled around and I got a call from work, I didn't pick it up hoping they would leave me a message. They called back again at like 5:45, this time I picked it up. It was my supervisor, she asked me where I was and I told her sitting on my couch, she said that was supposed to be there at 5! Let me tell you what, I don't think I have ever moved that fast!

I ended up being an hour late, which means I'll probably get written up...oh well I guess it happens huh?

I hope everyone is doing alright! It feels great to be back!

Back in Business!

Wow, everyone its been way too long!

We finally have wireless internet for the boat!

So as an update, I will post some progress pictures of the interior of the boat.

Life has been great on here on the boat so far. A lot of rain but no snow thankfully!

Charlie has been loving boat life. He is a very lazy dog! He sleeps on his bed all day, don’t get me wrong he loves his walks but he would much rather be inside sleeping with people all day, then outside without the people. Very odd dog, but we love him regardless.

I have recently become obsessed with Lady GaGa. I know she is crazy but her music is so unique! I was really hesitant at first to like her because I thought she was going to be like every other “pop” star.

I am still working at Costco, almost been two years now! I can’t believe it’s been that long. I hoping to get out of the Food Court soon and maybe go to membership.

I hope everything is going good for everyone else! I have missed you all quite a bit.

To my blog family, I am back in business!!
