Busy Week Ahead

More studying and more NBA basically sums it up for me! Some more review today and tomorrow and then it’s exam time. The end is drawing near and I am ready to take the exam. After the exam, it becomes a busy week as I fly home the same day (Tuesday), pack up on Wednesday,…

Tamar Photo

My niece Tamar! The shirt speaks the truth… She is now 8 months old and gets to go on her first trip next week when she flies down to visit my other sister in Monterey.

Costco Visit!

Yes, any visit to Costco Wholesale is worth mentioning in the title of an entry. It was an especially nice to visit my “home” Costco location in Issaquah, which also serves as the corporate headquarters (located about 8 minutes from my house in Sammamish). One of those in-house positions at Costco has my name written…

Sammamish Spring Break

After a rainy homecoming to Smmamish, WA yesterday, the skies have parted and it is beautiful outside. The air is clear and refreshing with some nice sunshine. I went on a nice walk with my sister and neice in Maple Valley. My neice, Tamar, is now 7 months old, and loves to ride in the…

Tamar

My niece Tamar is now over 4 months old. She is well mannered with little crying and annoyingness. Maybe it’s because my sister is on top of the mom job. Here is a recent photo: In other news, my brother-in-law came over with a chainsaw and we cut the tree downed by the tree service…

Holiday Dinner

Yesterday my mom and I drove over to my sister Karen’s house in Maple Valley for a holiday dinner. Her husband cooked a great meal, featuring some tasty duck and the desserts were also excellent. I especially liked my sister’s apple crisp, mmmmm…. I enjoyed seeing my niece Tamar, who is now over 4 months…

Good workout

Today I had a good workout at Klahanie gym with my mom. Yes, I worked out with my mom – it’s true – but she is a great partner! She is a world record holder at the bench press for her weight and age group (203.7 pounds for a 112 pound, 54 year old). My…

Fallen Tree Photos

This evening the tree service came and removed another tree that was leaning over our house. I guess after they took a look at it, they decided it was high priority – it wouldn’t have taken another storm to knock it down… Here are some photos of the tree that fell over our driveway before…

Happy Thanksgiving!

Yesterday I had a great Thanksgiving dinner at my brother in-law’s parents house in Fremont. The food was delicious as usual and it was an all-around good time. I spent most of Thanksgiving day reading while my sister and her husband were packing up. They are moving to Monterey so I won’t be visiting Fremont…

Cali Coast

View of Lover’s Point, Pacific Grove, CA (Photo by Jim Finney) I just got back from an awesome weekend at my sister’s new residence in Monterey, CA. It was a fun time and I enjoyed touring the sights of Monterey and neighboring town, Pacific Grove. The weather was beautiful with just enough marine influence to…

Monterey

Friday, I completed my last callback interview and it was fun to talk and have a nice lunch. Now it’s just a waiting game for the offers. After the interviewing, I went to Arrillaga gym to unwind. I had a good workout working mainly shoulders. Unfortunately, the air conditioner was broken or not working properly…

Tamar Photos

Nothing really interesting went down today aside from laziness, reading, a workout at Arrillaga, and more laziness. The workout at Arrillaga was actually good, working mainly shoulders. I somehow didn’t run today even though I had all day to do it, but I definitely plan on running tomorrow. Well, I guess it’s time to do…
