Because I'm action-oriented and can be impulsive,I now have a "date" with a former gymnastics mom(who isn't really a friend, but is funny and caring) to this. I do enjoy the opera and it was a great price, but I tend to jump first and wonder about my sanity later. A trip to Seattle on a Sunday? A three hour opera? I do love Puccini though...
We have a very pleasant group of people working on our RHS 40th reunion committee(gulp), including Dan and Dennis,our "token men"; do I really look that old? I don't FEEL OLD. Well, maybe at 5 a.m. when I get up for work. :) And Alison wrote this on her blog a while back about Patt, which makes me feel weepy. Why haven't I posted this before?
To the most incredible man I’ve ever known. The guy who never missed one of my choir concerts, despite his obvious dislike of choral music. Who went to (and hated) The Nutcracker for three years in a row, just to see my sister dance. And he never once complained. He could build anything, like the time I was obsessed with pioneer days…so he built a floor and furniture for a pioneer house (aka tent) to put in the backyard. And he dug a creek so we could make homemade ice cream. He was generous, funny, creative, and would do anything for his family.
“You know that place between sleep and awake? The place where you can still remember dreaming? That’s where I’ll always love you. That’s where I’ll be waiting.”
Catch you down the road somewhere. *

Patt loved his girls more than anything in this world. And what's more, we knew it.
