It's been two weeks and one workshop since my last post. I have half a post written and another tucked into my "plot" folder waiting for a little time. School is winding down and there's a free week before the summer quarter. A good thing since I'm headed to Nationals. Like everyone I know, I'm cleaning out my wardrobe, doing the cut and dye and making sure my kids won't starve without me.
Dinner, laundry, groceries and mom's taxi. I'm trying to stockpile clean towels and negotiate a ride to the airport. Not an easy task now that I've moved farther into the foothills. I'm literally two blocks west of the Cascades and Sea-Tac is a punishing two hundred dollar shuttle ride, each way.
Over on RD people are talking about the fabulous restaurants they're going to visit, and I don't know what universe they live in, but my universe is full of underemployed people and bills. Just the sight of a triple dollar listing is enough to scare me out the door and down the street so I've been checking out Midtown Lunch and Yelp. Love Yelp. If it wasn't for Yelp I'd have never found the Waffle Window--omg! Strawberry-rhubarb with coconut panna cotta and whipped cream on a sugar glazed Belgian waffle--for $4! *Yelp, I love you*
I found a really good Cuban place less than a block away from the hotel, tucked down the street behind the McDonald's and it's looking like dinner. A full meal for six bucks? I'm so there.
