Well, it's been quite a while since since my last post. Let's face it; I'm not a good blogger. However, I never claimed to be in the first place. Maybe I'll get better, maybe I won't, but I'll keep it up.... as I feel the need to. But enough about that, there are other things to speak about.

I'm starting on a couple days worth of packing right now. The packing is because I'm flying back to Alabama for a visit on Sunday. This is the first time I've been back for a visit in two years, so I'm pretty stoked. I'll get to see my Mom, my only sister, my only niece, & one of my brothers.

The other thing that I'm really looking forward to is food. Now, Seattle has some of the best restaurants & cuisine I've ever eaten. But I just haven't been able to find good bar-b-q, grits, gumbo, or okra. I never realized how much I love okra (in gumbo & fried) until I didn't have it. Yeah, I know, it's an old story, "You don't know what you've got until it's gone." I was also missing Sonic Drive-In's, but they opened one in Puyallup, so I went there & had Sonic. :) However, they still don't have Krystal or the northern equivalent, White Castle. I'll totally be filling up on Krystal at some point.

Anyway, I've gotta finish up some laundry, and get a good jump on the packing. By this time on Sunday, I should be at Mama's house. :)
