I haven't posted in a few days because we have been busy hosting my mom, who visted for awhile. I picked her up at the airport about 2 UTC on Wednesday and dropped her off at the airport today at around 18 UTC. In the time in between (which I took off of work) we ate out a few times, watched a couple of DVDs, saw Amy's school, saw my work, visited Pike's Place Market and the Crossroads mall, visited a college roommate of my mom's (and her family), visted two of my cousins (one from my mom's side, one from my dad's), drove around some, walked the dog a bunch, went to a couple of museums, saw a symphony performance, and went to the top of the Space Needle. It was a busy 4 days and 16 hours. And a good time for the most part. My mom is now heading back home to Ohio.
