Hello all you wonderful readers. The good news is our house is starting to recover from the terrible stomach flu. We're not tip-top just yet, but I had enough energy to get tonight's page completed. I will be taking it easy over the weekend, but I'm pretty certain I should be able to start working again, too. Thanks for all your support, understanding, and well wishes! My family and I appreciate it!
My husband got super sick over the holiday weekend. We went to the hospital twice because of the abdominal pain and non stop vomiting. Just as he was feeling better yesterday both our daughter and I got really sick. Seems to be a really nasty stomach flu, though my vomiting only lasted one day.
I missed today's Love Not Found update and haven't been able to post a notice on the site until now as I have been stuck in bed. I am seriously so sorry for keeping everyone on the site in the dark up to this point. I am hoping to be back for Friday's update. I will keep everyone updated through my twitter, tumblr, and facebook since I can update those through my phone.
So, we did indeed make it to Portland, OR after quite a lot of adventures on the road. We had a tire blow out on the trailer in the middle of nowhere Nevada. Twenty miles of nothing and no cell signal in both directions. Luckily, a kind stranger stopped and gave us a tire from his own trailer at home (drove home and came back --an hour round trip-- just to help us). We went to an amazing kids museum in Albuquerque and had an amazing lunch at Violette's Vegan in Las Vegas.
Now that we're in Portland we are loving it! The vegan food here is delicious and plentiful. The parks are numerous and green and the weather is just lovely! We are getting to hang out with our friends on a regular basis which is really cool. And we were able to secure a house rental after less than two weeks. It was pretty cuthroat to get a place, though! We just got very lucky. Right now we are still unpacking and my office is currently setup on the dining table. However, I am able to get work done in between all the unpacking, so that is pretty nice as well.
