The hubby just got home from working last night with some excellent news! He's got 1 month off from work for us to go out to Oregon! I'm sooooo excited! We are renting a car, and driving with the dogs out to Oregon on September 27th and staying to October 23rd. I can't wait! It's like 4 o'clock in the morning on the West Coast, otherwise I would be calling them on the phone to let them know right now. I'll wait till a decent hour, but then it's time to deliver good news. It will be nice to get away from the house frustrations, for sure!
