June. The days are lingering longer, I'm happy about that. Just a few more weeks until school is out & we hit the freedom of the open road. In other words, hours on end of family time, crammed together in a car. We are headed first to Wilsonville, OR(a suburb of Portland) to stay with one of my favorite friends. After a few days, & I'm sure wearing out our welcome at their place, we are headed to Olympia, WA. to visit 2 of the husband-man's sisters & families. On the way back home from all that, the plan is to stop for a couple nights in San Francisco.
I'm hoping to scope out a few areas in our travels, especially Portland area...look at a few houses for sale, just to see what's there. We are talking in the next year or so about trying to buy a place, or possibly build. My main requirement is land. I'm not a lady who cares about fancy kitchens, or walk-in closets. I need dirt to work in, I need trees. So we always go back & forth about trying to stay in sunny Southern California, where the prices are unfortunately sky high, or moving up north & getting way more for the money....but living in the dreaded rain.
Anyway, but I am getting ahead of myself. For now I'm just looking forward to an end of some school year obligations, & the adventure of not feeling as tied down to a schedule(I know it sounds pretty wild). ha ha
