Po-ort-lan-duh.

No posts for a while. Sorry about that. But, you know why? I've been moving! Yes, packing tiny bits of paper, concert tickets, CDs and DVDs (do I take the cases or not?), sweaters, hats, scarves, frames, photos, scads of books, and all other random paraphernalia found in my room.

Hauling everything up in a trailer covered with a flimsy tarp that looked like a hula skirt by the end of the trip, Mom, Dad and I drove up on Friday. Almost nine hours after leaving 112 degree Redding, we started unpacking in 106 degree Portland (how could you DO this to me!). We got everything settled and the place looks really cute, thanks in large part to cool wood floor and Ikea. So, I've got an apartment. "Job?" you say? Ha! I laugh in the face of jobs! Until tomorrow when I beat the pavement to find one. May the employment gods shine down upon me.

Super cool Ikea kitchen rack system. Neato.

Your kitchen fascinates me. i've never seen anything so small in all my life. i think i've seen baby squirrels bigger than that kitchen.

Love it! I should have known that you would have everything decorated and cute in 2 days! It will probably take Chris and I two years just to unpack all of our boxes. Impressive Bets. Good luck with the job search.

It looks great Bets! Where do you sleep?
We can't wait to get back and see it in person.
Hope the job search is going well!

thanks all! yes, i have seen baby squirrels bigger than my kitchen. definitely a one-butt kitchen. and i sleep on the hidden bed behind the desk-ish thing. it's really only hidden from one angle, cause it's going to have to also be my couch till i get a real one. someday...

Besty! up top for your move! only...7 months after your last adventure in employment? (hehe! joke). i'm proud of you! now all i need is some cash flow for a ticket up to heaven-on-earth (or so you would have us believe). seems everyone is wishing you 'good luck' on your job hunt. i'll choose a different route, i hope a bucket of money drops into your bathtub from a hole in the ceiling.

peace,
eric
