Day 2 was... torture. Okay, it wasn't that bad. But I pre-warned RJ before the trip. I do NOT like Wyoming. My sister and I drove through it once before when we moved from Idaho to New Mexico. It is a sad excuse for a state. What if I had to live there? I shudder at the thought. The best part of Day 2 (and possibly the entire trip) was when we crossed over the border into Montana, and suddenly we were surrounded by plush, green beauty. Lovely! We stayed the night in a fabulous, rustic cabin in Columbus, MT. We walked Zack along the river and felt like we were in Heaven!

Since the night of our arrival, we have begun to settle in nicely. The goal is to live with my parents for 3-4 months, then buy a house. We have just begun the process of looking for a house, and I am actually meeting with our real estate agent tomorrow. (Yippee!) RJ started his new job and loves it so far. We have had the opportunity to see my brother's awesome band, Seven Devils, play twice, including once at Hot August Nights. They are really, really good! We also attended a party for my friend Alison, who is getting married in less than two weeks on Orcas Island. Other than that, I've just been looking for jobs, helping my mom out at the office, and whatever else comes up!
I'm so happy to be able to share all the joys of the Northwest with RJ. He's like a kid in a candy store. I think his favorite thing (besides living on two rivers) is FRY SAUCE. Oh my goodness. That alone is worth living here for.
