for my recent jaunt up to the Portland area
miles driven: 621
hours spent in car: 15
books on tape finished: 1.5
(college age) friends visited: 2
other friends (ie staff at school): 6
friends I wanted to see but missed: 2
hours spent in a mall: 2.5
months since the last time I was in a mall: too many to count
cities I passed through but had no time to stop in despite my best intentions:
other random stuff:
- saw Garden State
- shamed my poor friend (I think I was too overzealous in volunteering to help out)
- bought a wedding present for a friend
- enjoyed the metro area -- went shopping at Winco for cheap groceries!
- decided my vacation was entirely too short. September can't come too soon. If my town were just a little further up on the coast, life would be grand, but this 7 hours to PDX is killing me.
