Hello friends, just wanted to let you know that I'm about to leave for a few days in Portland, OR for work. I'll be back on Wednesday and will try to get you properly updated with pictures and a post at that time. I'm fully stocked with new magazines for reading on the flight, as well as a mystery of course. I always feel so much more relaxed knowing that I have good reading materials for a trip - I don't dread the flight at all if I have something fun to peruse. My iPod has been updated with a couple of new CD's I recently got, and I'm set with snacks for the flight as well. I haven't been to Portland for quite some time. I wish I could do more sight seeing, but it's strictly business this go round. I hope you are all doing well. I'll talk to you soon!
