VACATION ALL I EVER WANTED

* We had half of a fantastic vacation! We want to move to Portland so badly. It is lovely and progressive and beautiful.
* We went to Multnomah Falls and Powell's bookstore with Denise's cousin and his wife, who are lovely people.
* We had ALL the great food
* We took an Amtrak to Tacoma which was also very cool. We plan to take the train as often as possible
* The weather was so fo fantastic it was unreal. We had two days of sunny perfection, and then it got a little overcast and drizzly and Brenda, Denise's cousin's wife goes, 'Oh! The weather got yucky.' We were both, '...no? What is this yucky you speak of?' It was still cool and brisk and fabulous.
* It is 95 degrees in Houston right now with 79% humidity and I am dying.
* Sadly, I could not connect with Dine, but I have hope next time!

AND THEN IT ALL WENT TO HELL

* D didn't tell me she had been feeling increasingly worse pretty much since we began the trip. She said she thought she could 'power through' the trip. ( facepalm )
* We got to Tacom and the morning we were to go whale watching she woke me up in the middle of the night to tell me she felt sick. An hour and three projectile sick bombs later my friend Shelby drove us to the ER in Puyallup, WA
* D was released after three days because she had a 22000 count of white blood cells when the normal amount is 8000 and her heart rate was elevated. This is always what they find when she goes to the ER.
* It COULD have been worse. She could have cratered on the Clipper ship. Or on the plane. Or in some city where we knew no one. Our friends were just the best the whole time and I can't believe we are lucky enough to have them in our lives.
* We changed our flight and finally got home and I took two extra days off because I needed a vacation from my vacation

So! That part is a do-over whenever we get the money again.

WATCHING

* Just started binging Zoo. Not bad. I have Zenyatta/Jackson FEELINGS
* Got three eps into The Handmaid's Tale and kind of stalled. I know I'll go back to it but it feels too close to reality for me right now. Especially in Texas
* Shadowhunters is back!!! I loves me some Magnus Bane.

HOCKEY

* The Pens won The Cup. While I'm not surprised because really, it's the Pens, I so wanted the Preds to win for PK. Still, Phil Kessel has a Cup win now, along with Trevor Daley, an ex-Dallas Star, and one of my favorites, so that is happy-making
* Now the long, dry, empty months until next season. May they pass quickly

ANNIVERSARY

*26 years together, 24 married. :-) Felicidades to us!

OK gente!

Must go work, so talk at y'all later!

I'm supersorry that D got so sick, but glad you mostly managed to have fun on your vacation anyway! I really hoped to connect with you - next time I'll tell my parents not to have a milestone anniversary

while I'm happy the Pens won, I really wanted PK to have a Cup, so he could brandish it in Montreal's direction and say "suck it" to Bergevin. next year, right?

and! happy happy anniversary to you both

Happy anniversary to you!

I'm glad you had such a good vacation until everything went wrong. I hope D is feeling much better now.

I've been watching The Handmaid's Tale. Man, it's intense. I've been watching as it's broadcast here so have only seen 4 eps, but need that weeks break in-between.

Holy shit! That sounds scary with D! o.O I'm so very glad you got good friends to help you, I really am!

I'm glad part of your vacation was that nice though. :-) You deserved that.
