Shopping

I've been in Portland, OR since Tuesday.

My daughter Amanda is doing a 50 hour internship at the Federal Court for the last leg of her her Court Reporting certificate requirements.  Her fingers are very tired.

I've been grandma drop off to and pick up from school for the kindergarten kid.

 Today Curlymop missed school because her eyes were red and burning.  The medical clinic sqeezed us in this afternoon for a quick check up.  The Pediatrician hardly walked through the door before exclaiming, "Pink Eye!

Poor kid has caught every bug that has come along in her classroom this fall.

I still plan to get out to some of the great stores here in Portland and do some Christmas shopping. 

You'll note that Amanda and I already went to Powell's. 





(My eyes are sort of burning.  Uh oh.)

Does the goss mag feature Tiger Woods... every other form of media seems to, he was just in Australia... as you may have heard... and left here with the accolades of the entire nation, only to have it all blow up in his face a week or so later.

I love Powells! I could get lost in there for hours. I only went once, but it was enough to get me hooked. If I'm ever back in Portland, it's at the top of my list!

Pink eye is awful. I had it for the first time as an adult and I thought I'd gotten something in my eye that had scratched it. It swelled and had pus and crusted shut before I went to the doctor. NOT fun. I hope Curlymop's done with it soon. And that you don't get it.

I have had one kid with pink eye years ago and one kid got impetigo. We have been fortunate to avoid lice. Looks like you have had some fun shopping.
