Amber and I arrived safely in Seattle and I have been successful in driving us around, and even got on the freeway twice without incident. I'm so proud of me :) We landed at 10 a.m. yesterday and then tried very hard to stay awake all day, so we rented a car and started some shopping at Target and Michael's...my parents both laughed really hard when I told them that those were the first two places we hit. Hey, we lucked out, there's a shopping area near where we're staying that has a ton of stuff in it that we wanted to see. Through sheer force of will I managed to stay awake until 8:00 last night despite the massive time difference and only sleeping for about an hour on the flight.
So today we didn't wake up till 10:30 so we both slept a good fourteen or fifteen hours...guess you have to do that after living Tuesday twice in one week. Amber had her pre-op appointments for most of the afternoon and then we hit Panera Bread for dinner...it's been a long time since I had some good French onion soup, yum!! Then we hit Barnes & Noble...even if I don't buy anything, I like to just walk around a good bookstore and look. We'll probably be going back to both Panera and BN before we leave :)
Good thing we hit the bookstore today since Amber's surgery is tomorrow and I'll be sitting in the hospital waiting while that's going on. That's ok though, I've got a few books to keep myself occupied so I'm good. Hope it all goes smoothly for her though...
