New Car

This last Saturday I bought my first car that has only me on the title! It's a 2006 Saab 9-3. (Ann, aren't you proud that I bought a Swedish car?) I love it. It only has 17000 miles on it and has all of the fun options that I wanted. It was a really good buy too. You guys will have to see it when you are in town. Here is a picture of it from the listing on line, but I dont think it's the best angle. I've had a lot of fun driving it around. Although it does have a turbo engine, which is fun, but is dangerous with my love for speed. :)

So I did a crazy thing. I signed up to run the Seattle Marathon in November. I'll probably die doing it, but at least I've got more than 6 months to train for it. I decided to do it because I wanted to find a hobby and set a goal of something for me to work toward. I'm excited for it, but I'm also kinda thinking that I am crazy. I printed off a training schedule. The schedule is for the 19 weeks leading up to the marathon. It's crazy how much you're supposed to be running. Running will have to become my life. So anyway, wish me luck, and encourage me along the way because I'm gonna need it.

My Boys

This picture is of Will and Rod playing outside my friend Antonella's house. Rod is so amazing with Will. Sometimes I think Will likes Rod more than me. The other day Rod came with me to pick up Will from Mom and Dad's house. When I walked in he just kinda stood there. But when he saw Rod he got all excited and wanted Rod to pick him up. I think he likes Rod because he's more fun. Rod picked him up and took him outside and carried him around the yard and deck and Will seemed so happy. I love seeing my boys together!

Mama and Papa Gonzalez

Last weekend Rod's parents came up to visit from Vancouver, WA. We had a lot of fun. On Saturday we went out of Pikes Place Market. We had lunch at a cute and very yummy restaurant out there and then did a little shopping. Rod and his dad spent quite a while in an Italian grocery store there. It kinda reminded me of something Keith would do. After we came back from Seattle we hung out at my apartment and taught Rod's parents how to play Rummy. On Sunday the 4 of us and Will went up to Snoqualmie Falls. It was beautiful up there but the falls were so big that you couldn't look at it much without getting soaked. It was a wonderful weekend with wonderful people. I love them!

New Job

I just accepted a new job yesterday. I will be working as an Administrative Assistant for Primus International. They are an aerospace product provider for planes and military equipment. They are located in Bellevue. I'm starting on the 21st. I'm have mixed emotions about the whole thing. I am so excited for this new opportunity. Yet at the same time I hate to leave the gym because I feel like it's my family there. I've made so many friends in both the employees and the members. All in all I am just very excited and grateful for this new opportunity. It will be nice to work for a company that values their employees.
