I've always scoffed at bloggers that claimed they haven't posted because they haven't had anything interesting to report... but I can finally empathize: since Christmas, all I've had to say is "I'm sick!" and "still sick!" and "got sick again!!"
Well finally I'm getting better and have lots of new stuff to report.
First, we went on a trip this weekend! We drove up to Vancouver, BC (Canada!) for the second time ever and visited some friends that just moved there (first trip: Vancouver half-marathon in March 2007). These friends used to live in Seattle, but they are originally from Brazil and due to some complications with their Visa they needed us to bring them some of their stuff from when they had lived here. It was a lot of stuff. We were worried that we wouldn't be able to fit it all into our car (we did, just barely), and then we were worried they wouldn't let us across the border with all of it (we did, no problem).
Second, we got moving on our Quest for a Giant TV. We initiated the process by giving away our old tv (to the friends in Vancouver).This is our now-empty entertainment center. The new tv will be ordered shortly.
Third, we are dogsitting again, for a new dog named Zeffir. She is the opposite of our old friend the Pig-Dog in every respect. While Pig-Dog was short, snuffy, very outgoing, and constantly hungry, Zeffir is medium-sized, quiet, shy, and more concerned about where her family is and why she isn't with them. In fact, tonight, our first night with her, she is totally depressed and obviously out of sorts. Hopefully she'll come around by the end of the week. Especially since we don't have a TV...
