It’s official. The kids and I are Bellingham residents now.

After a very long, very exhausting day (that may have involved being rear ended in the fast lane on I-5), all three kids are sleeping soundly in their beds, I’m popping some pain pills and hitting my work to-do list, and Josh is back in Seattle finishing up the house and his last days at work.

More on all of that later.

In the meantime, I present…

18 Things that I never did in Seattle.

1. Hike Mt. Si

2. Visit the Seattle Aquarium

3. Take the Water Taxi from downtown to Alki

4. See the naked bike parade in Fremont

5. Paddle board on Lake Union

6. Spend the day winery hopping in Woodinville

7. Hit a cyclist with my car

8. See the cherry blossoms on the trees at UW

9. Walk through the arboretum

10. Eat pho

11. Have dinner at every Tom Douglas restaurant

12. Or every Ethan Stowell restaurant

13. See the day after Thanksgiving parade downtown

14. Have a coffee at the original Starbucks

15. Go to a concert at Benaroya Hall
