Diva's

I'm in Seattle! I left this afternoon and will be gone until Friday night. The Washington State TBI Conference is happening this weekend, and I'm attending! Yay!

I'm excited to see what new things I learn and to get repumped to take on this task before me.

It was hard saying good bye to Cale. I'm trying not to worry, but it's hard to be gone for the first time since being home. Since we left Palo Alto, I've been with him 24/7 and have only taken a couple hours here and there away from him. It's good to take a break and a step back to be refreshed, BUT I miss him! Even though our last car ride was rough on him...I really missed having him next to me today!

My time here started with about an hour at a coffee shop here, Diva's. I walked in and immediately enjoyed the place. I ordered a small coffee and a muffin and found a seat. There was nothing that I could do or think about getting done; all I could do was sit and relax...much needed!

Then, I went to an Italian restaurant for dinner with a friend. Gooooood food! Our tummies are full so sleep is soon! :)

The conference starts tomorrow morning and doesn't end until 5pm. It's going to be a packed day, and I'm so excited!

Blessings

  2. I'm sure you had a ton of ideas as for the water drinking. But I wanted to share something that's helped us and others. We use a camelbak. You can get them for $10. They are basically like a "cool" water bottle with a squishy top to drink out of. For some reason the water tastes amazing out of them and it's just fun and easier to drink then out of a glass or regular bottle. Maybe the top is just fun to suck on? I know people who don't really like water but are able to drink lots with this type of bottle. He may also be "used" to it as it's the same piece they use for the army camelbaks. :) http://www.amazon.com/CamelBak-BPA-Free-Better-Bottle-Valve/dp/B0019DCD6Q/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1303992699&sr=8-1
