This was not the post I wanted to write today. No, that’s more of a public (er.. pubic) service announcement. Instead, what I wanted to say was….
Today LB and I had a fantastic day. Today we got to meet someone I’ve known for over a year. Someone who moved from Kentucky to Seattle six months before we moved up, has the same age toddler, the same freakin’ car, and probably about every other minute detail of life (oh! Like her birthday is a few days after mine) in common with me. She’s like me but with a Brittish husband. So she’s me but she spells favorite favourite. Like, how cool is that?
I’ve read her website for over a year now. When she moved to Seattle I emailed her and said, “OH MY GOD! WE ARE MOVING TO SEATTLE! Want to be my friend?” and when she didn’t hit delete without sending me some lovely email back I figured I’d make her my new favorite. Then when she actually agreed to meet us in person she got promoted to sainthood. THEN when she suggests a super fun bouncy place that wears kids out and almost-guarantees-a-nap-or-your-money-back I could’ve kissed her.
But I didn’t. And no, there are no pictures.
But the kids did have fun and I got to slide down some kick ass slides. It wasn’t until I had been bouncing for some time before I realized it said “No Pregnant Women” on the side of the bouncy thing. Well, duh. Now doesn’t that make sense? See, #2 gets hardly any paranoia. I lavished paranoia on LB in utero (and out) and here I am bouncing all over like pregnant boobs without a bra.
Or something similarly bouncy.
At any rate, we had a great time, LB made a little friend and I got to talk to someone who gets the “I have to eat every two hours or I’ll gag” thing. That’s the stuff first dates should be made out of.
22 guests here now.
I’m glad you’ve made a new friend in your new town. And of course you would. You’re supercool. Wish I was there to hang with ya’ll.

HOW COOL IS THAT! It’s neat to find someone that can be your “girl” with a little one- IN SEATTLE!
And now I know for sure I live in Bumblef@ck Egypt… I have never heard of a Bouncey Park!! **pouts**

I’m so jealous. I want to go have dates with you in Seattle! :( :( :(

Just found your blog via princess Grace…
I’m in T Town, just down the road from Seattle. It’s always fun to read bloggers that are near you. I’ll have to be back more when the boss isn’t sneaking around behind me trying to catch me abusing company property =0)

I totally KNOW how you feel and I am very happy for you. Friends totally lift the spirits indeed And, a much-needed break on your behalf is a plus!
Oh, we have a local plumbing company around here that is called Flinger something or the other. I always think of you when I see it

That’s awesome! It’s always so exciting when you meet someone new and click with them.

The non-paranoia will continue after Number Two is born. You’ll be like “hmm, stop getting your drool on my big shiny knife set” without worrying about cuts.

That’s great; there’s nothing like a new friend for you and your girl!
I’ve never read her blog but I’m on my way to check it out.
By Renee on 2006 11 17
oh i’m so glad…maybe I could find a blogger who lives out here, stalk her, then ask her to be my friend too!!
No? not a good idea?
Ok then, i’m stuck with my blogworld friends. Wanna be my friend??
