Sleeping In Seattle

Sorry I've been a bit missing over the past couple of days. I'm in Seattle for work, and have been busy working, sight-seeing, working, shopping, working, eating fabulous food and working. I just want it to be clear that I am working while out here.

I got in Sunday and met up with several sales reps and we hung out in the concierge lounge for a while, then decided to go see The Hangover. OMG - that movie was hilarious!!!! I have not laughed that hard in a movie in such a long time. We did the high school thing and piled into a photo booth at the theater (see below).

I'm here for a conference/trade show and after getting the booth set up Sunday, I'm basically just managing everything, making sure all goes smoothly, so I had a little time yesterday afternoon to check out Pike Place. I had a blast watching the market guys throw huge fish around for a while and drooled over the beautiful flowers.

We had a wonderful client dinner last night, with lobster bisque, an edive and boston lettuce salad with herb goat cheese, grilled salmon with a yummy sauce and veggies and creme brulee, chocolate torte and butter cookes with fresh fruit. Needless to say, I'm going to have to hit the gym hard when I get home. See you on the east coast tomorrow!

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …
