Oregon Trail 2014


2014 must be the year of change because my big news of the week is that sissie Siri is moving to Portland next week!  She works for a very large sporting goods company (I'm sure you can guess which) headquartered out of Portland, and while I was in London last week, she interviewed for a new position based at their HQ.  Siri got the offer last week and, as she starts in two weeks, she needed to move immediately.  My poor mother has been crying her eyes out every other day because Siri is flying the nest, again, but truly we are all excited for her and for her new opportunity.  Plus, we'll get to visit Portland, which has been at the top of my list of places to visit for the past five years.

Siri, my little Short Round sister, I will miss you so very much.  I know you'll do great things in Portlandia and look forward to being so very proud of your accomplishments there.  Take care of yourself, don't forget to do your laundry, and Skype mom and dad often.

  1. WOW! I'm insanely jealous. I'm so restless and desperate to move (and I got Portland on that stupid "Where are you supposed to live" Facebook quiz) and I want to visit Christine. Sob.

    But, really, happy for your family, because change is so good for everyone, bittersweet though it may be.

  2. Oregon Trail! I was thinking about that when it snowed earlier in the week.

    I hope she has a great experience there--and that there are lots of visits.

    You know, I would say we'll have to meet up when you visit her sometime, but given the other comments, it looks like you'll not be lacking in people to visit! :)
