A Near Perfect Day

I’m in Anchorage for the next week for Tobacco Treatment Specialist training.

Ah, to be back in town with restaurants, movie theatres, and of course, traffic.

Suffice it to say, I do not and will never miss traffic.

Having the entire day to myself, I went to see “The Women” which was hilarious.  At one point, I was nearly crying, I was laughing so hard.  I have no doubt, I’ll be torturing Howard for months just from the one-liners I took from that movie.

Afterwards, I went and got a pedicure, and did a little shopping.

Then I went to New Sagaya and got my usual favorite Chinese Take out.

I also couldn’t resist buying a slice of Tiramisu for dessert.

After dinner, I relaxed in the room, talked on the phone to my Anchorage friends and got a call from Howard that our friend Tonya gave birth to her baby this afternoon.

In short order, I grabbed my keys, threw on a sweater, snapped up my purse and hotel room keys and zipped over to the hospital.

Where I proceeded to ooh and aaah over a perfect 7lb 1oz baby boy named Triton Kash.  I held him until both of my arms were sore and gave Erik and Tonya hugs, promising to visit again before they leave to go back to our village.

The only thing that would have made it better was if Howard were here with me.  Of course, he and I would have been fighting over little Triton because he and I both love us some babies.

Chick flicks, retail therapy, pedicures, and newborns.

Could it get any better than that?
