We finally arrived in Spokane, descending into the valley on I-90.

I was happy to make it to my dad’s house and finally sleep.
Friends of mine, the Flahertys, just had a new baby. She’s genuinely very cute.
I ran into them at the store.
Tyler and Kara recently got engaged.

Went elsewhere with Tyler to sing some Careless Whisper, drunk of course.
Wandering around Safeway
Bo and Linda’s puppies!
Bo gave me an authentic Teddy Ruxpin. I still need to find some tapes.
