Back to Portland
9/20/07: We’ve had such a great time in Portland. We’re staying with Scott’s parents’ friends, Gary and Carol Goldstick, in their lovely home in Lake Oswego. Carol is mothering us with mouthwatering meals and special desserts… and Schmiegs/ Heinrichs, you are going to LOVE “West Coast Hand & Foot”. There is actual strategy involved! Don’t worry, I’ve written down all the rule variations. Scott is going to be in the show for the first time tomorrow, and it will be my fourth performance. We perform with the cast when we are able… its fun to support the show team. The only reason we’re not in it all the time is that with the education team being responsible for most of the other days of the week, “show day” is our big work day, when we’re able to get stuff done.
On Wednesday night, we were so happy to get to see my good friend from high school and college, Christine Barnett and her husband Sean. Christine is a medical resident on-call this month, so we were glad that she could find time between one of her 30 hour shifts to go out for sushi with us. The tuna was like butter! And my new favorite ice cream flavor: green tea. (it tastes so much like Trader Joes’ green tea muffins!)
