DAY 9: Trader Joe's

I have been saying for the last 6 1/2 years that if we could just get a Trader Joe's in Spokane, our quality of life would significantly increase. Well, I am here to break the news, they have just signed an agreement to purchase Empire Ford downtown Spokane! (the ownerns are retiring) I got the news on the "down low" from one of my nurses who has a brother-n-law or a cousin or someone who is on some kind of city planning committee or developer board or something (details not impotant),and he heard first hand of the deal.

Yippee! I guarantee you that this will stay at the top of my list of "positives" occuring during this bedrest stay. This has made my day, my week, my month, my year! Now, if they would just hurry up and open....

Yipee!! Me too, me too - very excited about TJ's coming to Spokane. Although it might spoil the joy of my TJ stop in Issaquah whenever I have to go to class in Seattle ... oh who cares! They have great cereal and I would love access to it more often!!
