On The Road Again...

Just can't wait to get on the road again...Yep. Now you're signing it. Sorry (ish).

I am in dire need of an escape to anywhere that isn't Seattle or Tacoma, or my house (which technically falls in that Seattle bucket). This weekend, I'll be doing just that!

Every year, I see ads for the Barn House sale (http://www.barnhousebh.com/). Tons of pretty, soft things and antiques, doo-dads, and what-not's. And every year, I wake up and say meh. Not this time, oh no! I'll be waiting up at the crack of dawn (ok, probably later than that) and hitting the road to Battle Ground, Washington, just off of the I-5 corridor, and close to Portland, where I will ooh and ahh over lovely things. I have to admit, I am pretty excited to go after all these years. From there, I'll be heading to Portland to go to Powell's books to feed my literary love and then to Fabric Depot for a sale that they are having.


Sunday, I'll be heading to the East Side (Bellevue, no E WA) to see a good friend, to gab about babies and to pick up some baby goodies from her fast-growing, beautiful little girl. 


I'll definitely try not to make this blog all about baby, but I do want to give a quick update!  I went in for the results of my genetic testing quad screen thing and to do a baby check up...Noodle's heart is strong, healthy and loud, and the doc said it sounded like he was just moving all over the place. My test results scored really well and my likelihood of having a genetic disorder is 1:5000. Yes, pretty much nil. Insert sigh of relief here. For my age, the risk of having a baby with Downs Syndrome is 1:1342 apparently. Take that odds. 


So, overall, things are good .I continue to clean and organize the house, and am trying to trim down the 35X35 list...slowly, but surely, things are coming together!  Now, to wrap up a workday and start making some boysenberry jelly! :)

Here's to good weekends, good times, and getting on the road!

"On the road again -
Just can't wait to get on the road again.
The life I love is making music with my friends

And I can't wait to get on the road again.
On the road again

Goin' places that I've never been.
Seein' things that I may never see again

And I can't wait to get on the road again.
On the road again -
Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway
We're the best of friends.
Insisting that the world keep turning our way [...]" ~Willie Nelson
