We have been slacking at phone calls lately because we have been so busy during the hours that most people are awake, so I wanted to give you a little update. I have been forgetting my camera most of the time lately (which is good for you, because today's photo would have been the gross and disintegrating pumpkin that is just inside the front door of my work) so no pictures this time.
Travel: I desperately wanted to be in Oregon for Christmas this year, but it is not going to work out. We will likely be sending our son instead. At this point we don't have concrete plans for travel to Oregon, but we are hoping to get down there this winter or spring, May at the latest.
We are going to Petersburg this weekend. I have never been there, and Ernie hasn't been in over twenty years, so we thought we would go check it out. Many people have mentioned that there is nothing to do in Petersburg this time of year, but that happens to be the point. We are planning to wander around, look at things, and relax. If we like it, maybe we will go back for the Little Norway festival. It sounds pretty out of control.
Theater: Chicago is opening on Friday! This has been a huge show for Ernie in his new position, and he has learned a lot. And put in a lot of hours. It looks like it is going to be amazing, and I'm really excited to see it. And to get my husband back.
Snow report: no snow
Music: We did get a chance to take a break last week and go see the UK Ukulele Orchestra. They were very good musicians, and ukulele music is always entertaining. It was a super fun night, and I think it inspired Ernie to start practicing his ukulele again. I may even give it a try.
That's about it. We are not very exciting people. We didn't go out for Halloween, and of course, no good parent sends their child trick or treating in the harbor. Too much danger. We got some candy though, just in case
