Okay, I admit it.  I’ve been hiding from you folks.  I’m not quite done with school yet.  I have one more term to go.  I got awesome grades for summer term (thus, the above mentioned triumph), and I have just three more classes to complete.  After that, my school will give me my degree, and I will be taking the bar.  I will be completely justified in wearing the Smart Hat that Liz is making me.

Smart Hat!

Smart Hat!

But in more recent news, I’ve been on vacation.  Chris and I just returned from a train trip to Portland, and I’ll let the numbers speak for themselves:

  • Days on vacation: 11
  • Train miles traveled: 1900(ish)
  • Train travel days: 4
  • Car miles running errands and such: 400ish (because my parents live in the boonies now)
  • Weddings Attended: 2
  • States visited:2
  • Trips to Powell’s: 1
  • Meals eaten in Pubs: 6
  • Friends shanghaied in to taking the train with us: 2
  • Books read while traveling: 4.97  (stupid train station, couldn’t be TEN MINUTES farther down the track)
  • Hot Stone Massages: 1
  • Voodoo donuts consumed: 2
  • Forlorn sighs over missing all the trees in Oregon: Too many to count

Congratulations to Matt and Anna.  Congratulations to Maomao and Hideah.  May you always be as happy and in love as you were on your wedding days.

Thanks to all the family that hosted us and fed us and drove out to say hi.  It was wonderful to see you all.  We’ll be back to visit again soon.
