I'm amazed that we've now been here in Oregon for a whole year. Last year, on this date, we pulled into town in two cars... Brian and the three cats in one car and me with the kid and the two dogs in the other. We stayed in a hotel again that night. Not fun with that many animals, especially since we had to keep one cat separate from the others. Tomorrow, though, is the actual anniversary of our taking ownership of the house. I remember that first week so well. We had no furniture, no appliances. We slept on camping equipment and cooked on a BBQ, a campstove and a crockpot. No fridge. Ugh. It was awful. Couldn't sleep very well either. The animals were restless, wondering when we were going home. We couldn't even let the dogs out unattended in the backyard because we hadn't yet fenced off the creek. However, I still say this was the best move we ever made. Salem is fantastic. Oregon is magnificent. Life here is good. We're all healthy (relatively) and happy.
