Trip To Seattle

Last month my sister-in-law called and told me she missed Janissa - so would I please visit. Since I wasn't working and won't be able to take a vacation for awhile once I find a job (yes, I'm still unemployed), I found a good airfare and flew up with Janissa and my niece, Sarah. Because Sarah had never been there, we did a lot of touristy things which was a lot of fun. We hung out together, saw some friends, rested and just had a great time. Our last night there, Kathy had Janissa sleep in her room and for the first time in over two months - I got to sleep through the night uninterrupted. Thanks Kathy!

Here are some pictures to show you what fun we had.

Not Janissa - my house. I had no choice. After searching for a job along the entire West Coast for 5 months with no prospects, I decided I better sell before my savings account dwindles away to nothing. So after 7 years in this home, I will be moving on. It's sad because this was Janissa's first home. She has been through so much in her short little life and now I have to move her again. We'll be going inland where homes are less expensive.

Janissa has been home for two months and is doing great. She is now 29" and about 21 pounds. She still amazes me every day and makes me laugh constantly. Here are a few pictures of the gorgeous little girl.

She's adorable, isn't she? Janissa, my niece Sarah and I took a trip up to Seattle to visit Tom and Kathy and the boys. I will post a montage of those photos next time. In the meantime, please pray that I find the job and home that are meant for Janissa and me.
