Week in Pictures

Just before the jackasses in pickup trucks showed up to terrorize the beaches. I fucking hate how there are still places they allow people to drive right on the sand – it’s dangerous and disrespectful, both environmentally and to people trying to have a quiet day at the beach away from all that kind of thing. Ugh. But it was…

Rediscovery

I was watching television on a Saturday night, thinking “is this all there is?” and the loneliness enveloping me. It’s what’s made me eat when I shouldn’t, that numbing food addiction that made me say to myself “tonight I’m going to fuck over my body with unkind food choices.” And I get sick and I cry to myself, because it’s…

Week in Pictures

Absolutely no regrets choosing general over local anesthesia for the vitrectomy. I may gasp at the bill, but the horror of knowing THIS is what they did is plenty for me. Headed to the doctor again for another checkup this morning to see what he thinks of my progress, but I can say I’m optimistic as the “horizon” (where the…

Little Bitty Getaway: Astoria

After each transfer we’ve planned a couple days out of town to exhale with the news, and obviously with shit hitting the fan double-time, this was especially vital. I’d booked us where we spent the first night of our honeymoon, the Cannery Pier Hotel in Astoria, months ago, hoping for a celebration. It’s located at the mouth of the Columbia…

Post-BFN Getaway: Yachats!

Lots and lots of time to just do…whatever. Our 4 days in Yachats were really, really good and really, really needed. A quiet little cheap motel right on the beach with a kitchenette to make our own meals, waking up to the sound of the ocean, being able to walk out the door and be steps from the sand, enough…

Anniversary Getaway: Bandon, Oregon

So, our anniversary getaway turned out very different than planned, as the Airbnb we’d reserved in Central Oregon we discovered a few days before departure was not a “whole house” as described but rather just a bedroom + microwave, with a “shared” porch and a “shared” hot tub. Ew. We are not “shared” people on our anniversary. Lesson learned? Never…

Week in Pictures

A few scenes from our overnight getaway to the Oregon Coast, taking off early the morning after the transfer and spending the day in Cannon Beach where it was an insane 80 degrees (close to 90 in Portland!) and everyone seeming to have the same idea. We grabbed some seafood at Ecola Seafood (the only food I’ll eat in CB…

Birthday Getaway: Central Oregon Coast

What a fun fun FUN time we had for my husband’s 48th birthday! He wanted to go to the Oregon Coast this year (last year I surprised him with a trip to wine country), and to explore another new area of the coast he’d not been yet since landing here in America. After my birthday trip to Agate Beach and…

Anniversary Getaway: Revisiting Where It All Happened

For our first wedding anniversary, my husband and I wanted to keep it simple while still getting out of the city. Having a momentous day so close to a holiday weekend (and next year, ON the holiday weekend, oy!) we decided to go Thursday and Friday (Friday our anniversary) to the Oregon Coast, that way we’d be arriving back home…
