Settling Down

We’ve decided to settle down in…

SPOKANE, WASHINGTON!

It’s the most logical choice. We’ve lived there twice before. We have friends, doctors, dentists, family and other services already established so there’s no start-up stress. It meets all of our criteria for hobbies and activities. Spokane is warm and dry in the summer, cold and sunny in the winter and experiences the four seasons. And it’s affordable to live here without breaking the bank :)

Helloooooo Seattle!

Having bad memories of schlepping on chains in the middle of a blizzard in July made me dread going through the pass to the west side of the state. The summer had been so warm this year that we actually had the opposite problem, it was 97 degrees and our radiator overheated. Fantastic. And we hadn’t even gotten to the pass yet. Thankfully it wasn’t a really big deal, just a little scary with green overheated liquid spraying and dripping and some wild seal-type howling noises. After a few phone calls and a refill of coolant, we were on our way again. The trip through the actual pass was uneventful.

Spokane, Washington

Having lived in Spokane on two separate occasions many years ago, we left some cherished friends behind. Staying in Priest River and driving into Spokane to get some ice time has afforded us the opportunity to catch up with some friends.

We met up with our friends Chris and Marnee, once on my own, and once with the whole family. Marnee is an awesome hair stylist downtown and was able to give me a really cute Halle Berry inspired cut while I was there on my own. When the whole family visited, Chris made a delicious meal and we hung out on their porch catching up and enjoying his guitar playing while all the kids played video/computer games.

Priest River, Idaho

Once again, we’ve been so busy living life, we haven’t found time to write about it :) We do have a bunch of posts lined up, so prepare for a small barrage as we play catch-up!


After a 5-day trek, we made it to Idaho!

Jason’s sister and her family were visiting from Oregon when we arrived, so we lucked out and got to see them too before they left. Divagirl and her cousins were able to have fun together, at least for a couple days.

We planned to visit Jason’s parents for 3 weeks, which provided some nice downtime for everyone. We were able to park Edelweiss on their property, and have water and electrical hookups, although we spent most of our time inside their house playing games, doing school work and just plain relaxing. The kids loved spending time at Nana and Grandpa’s house :)
