I am in Oregon...

...visiting my parents, and you know what that means. Dial up. Yes, the digital age has not made it's way to the far reaches of this little country town. These few posts I make from Oregon, then, will be slim.

So I made it here in 9.5 hours. Pretty good time for a person travelling 500 miles with four girls and a dog. Coordinating potty trips is an art - I am not sure I've mastered that art yet.

My dad, the girls, and I trekked over to Seal Rock yesterday and visited with my grandma. We spent most of the day on the beach. Gorgeous weather for the coast - 65 degrees and sunny. Today, of course, it is raining here. It rained the first day we arrived too, wouldn't you know it. I haven't seen rain in more than three months. But is this drizzly precipitation really considered "rain"? The drizzle is one part of Oregon that I do not miss.

Headed for home on Sunday. I have a job interview Monday morning; send your prayers and/or positive vibes my way.

So break a leg at the interview. I love the irony of you waiting until you get to dial-up to post on your blog. And also the irony that we both happen to be in different parts of Oregon at the same time, when we now live so close to each other in California. Seriously, let's plan something. (I mean in CA, not OR.)

No freakin' way...guess we should have called, but, for some reason we thought Seal Rock was out of your way. We CAMPED in Seal Rock Thursday night and spent a good amount of time Thursday and Friday on the beach there...

Thanks all for the well wishes on the interview. I will definitely let you know how everything turns out on Monday.

Mimi - that was funny; kind of reminds me of my policy for "borrowing clothing from my closet" when I was in college, lol.

Yes, Peter - very ironic on both parts. Let's plan something soon! I am anxious to visit with you and Maria!!!

No way, Mike!!! We spent all day on Ona Beach on Thursday(just a mile north of Seal Rock Beach). I think that you were lucky enough to experience the two most gorgeous days of weather that Seal Rock will have all summer! Can't wait to see you all when we get home. :)
