We've had an exhausting day today. First, Omid shaved off his goatee/mustache combo he's been sporting for a few weeks. It was super cute while it lasted and I already miss it.

Then we went to a memorial service & lunch for our friend Tamra. It was very emotional for all of us. Over 200 family/friends showed up for the service. It was beautifully done.
We dropped Nas off at home as she wasn't feeling well.

We hit Jimbo's for a youth hunting license for Matty (tomorrow is "youth hunting" day - yes, my 12.5 year old son with a big gun & ammunition. Look for tomorrow's blog for highlights of the hunt). I stayed in the car looking for coupons to spend in my Payback book. Too bad I didn't go inside. The police showed up and had to escort a man out (with his 4 kids!). He apparently left his wallet inside yesterday and it was put in the safe. The manager wasn't on duty to retrieve it for him and he wanted his wallet NOW.

After Jimbo's we went to Costco. We ran into Mrs. Pierce and her husband. We sat with Mrs. Pierce at Tamra's service, so we stopped to talk about it some more. After we said goodbye, we still saw her in almost every aisle in Costco. So funny!

After Costco, I ran Nas to her babysitting job (where she receives $8 an hour! - do you hear that all you $3 an hour people?). When I came home, Omid was talking to me in Farsi. I answered him in my Pidgin Farsi. He was laughing so hard, he called it Finglish. Isn't that cute?

Finally, after dinner, Remy got stuck in the pantry closet. The door was open about 12" - but he refused to walk through it. This is the same dog who will "suck" a door open - but refuses to push. Anyways, we heard his squeaks and encouraged him to come out. After about 5 minutes, he found the courage and busted (I mean, busted!) out of the closet. He was so proud of himself! We all congratulated him and showered him with love and cookies. It was a good day. :)

The Olympia going rate is $10 an hour for a babysitter. Too bad Naseem doesn't live closer. I could use a good one. : )

I wish I knew of a good sitter in Oly too. I will ask my sisters. It will be a blessing when Naseem can drive herself to/from her jobs. I had to pick her up at 1 a.m. last night.
