Impromtu Weekend

This weekend, we went on a very speedy, tiring, road trip. We decided we would go up to Seattle for a few days. (we left on Thursday morning and 12 hours later were pulling into our Red Lion Hotel in Bellevue) We went up there to get away, but also to see what was up in the area. I lived up there for nine months about 7 years ago, and am desparate to go and live there again. Since our last vacation in January up there, we both decided we are ready to make the move. Um... just one small problem, we need jobs. (well in this economy it might be a tad harder to get) We are trying and then as soon as we get them we will say good bye 'Tah, hello Seattle. (I can't even think of a nickname for that city, it is too wonderful) Our plan is to get jobs and move. Any jobs... I might be your local barista, or bookseller. Anything to get us up there. I would be fine with that. Travis is even fine with having to take a job that isn't his job title of Graphic Designer. Yesterday, he was saying he would even be happy being a fish thrower at Pike's Market. I told him that he wouldn't need to go that far, and besides he wouldn't get that job because it is highly sought after and he would need to know someone in that field. I try to be supportive when I can be.
