Our trip to Oregon is over. Garrett had a blast and a half playing with his cousins. Now we're back and I'm going crazy trying to tie up loose retreat ends. I've got to pack and get things in the car and make a sign and wrap a gift and write some thank you notes and pay bills and clean part of this house before I leave in 2o some hours. I promise that I will be back to my normal blogging self as soon as I finish retreating and attending my adoption meeting. Until then, take care. Enjoy life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness and the crashing economy.
