Captain's Log, Stardate .....

Well, no, not really.  But it's been awhile since I've posted anything here and wanted to give my loyal readers (Spooky and LadyAnn) an update.

The final Sunday at St. Luke's went well.  It was the second Sunday in the newly reconfigured chancel space and we seemed to have worked out all of the glitches just in time for them to handle the influx of supply clergy.  A lovely potluck followed with the giving of a few gifts (a signed book about the Rogue Valley and a beautiful quilt).

The following week of getting ready for the movers was typically hectic.  I had thought things went well until the day we were to leave when we discovered a cupboard full of tupperware that the packers forgot (and I missed on the walk-through), and an early morning dump run because the planned dump run arrived 10 minutes after closing. 

But we eventually got out of town just fine and headed up to Seaside, OR, for a couple of nights watching the sun set on the proper side of the ocean.  All was well until we discovered that our box of mandatory medicine got packed for the moving van rather than put into the car.  Major oops.  We are working through that problem.

We then had lunch with my biological father and his wife, dinner with Mrs. Ref's aunt and uncle, and spent two days with my mom and dad.  We also had a late date with our niece.

From there it was off to Mrs. Ref's mom's place in north-central Washington, where we are now.  We are going to spend the day roaming around the touristy Bavarian town of Leavenworth.

And through it all, FatCat and Troublemaker, are becoming seasoned travelers.

From here we will head east to Spokane for a night, then to Sheridan, MT, for a few days, and then the long trip across MT, SD, and MN.  

Things could be better, but they could also be a whole lot worse.  I am looking forward to getting home.

You really know how to stretch out a trip! Glad you are surviving so far. Mandatory medicine - I like that. And so wish I could not relate to it. Heh. Post some pictures from Montana! It's been too long since I was there.
