Road Tripping.. Sherri & Graham Style

You know.. I just typed a 5-paragraph essay about our weekend in Portland, but freaking blogger deleted it!

Let me just tell you a quick story to demonstrated mine and Graham's luck:

Friday night, we swapped cars with Graham's parents so they could drive my XTerra up to the snowy Mt. Hood. We drove their Mazda hatchback down to Portland that night. I don't know how many of you watch the weather channel besides Graham, but it has been very very cold (and snowy!) up here in the Northwest. So about 5 miles away from our exit on the freeway, we felt something funky when we changed lanes. Bad news: we had a flat tire.

So, it's midnight, 25 degrees outside, and we have a flat tire in someone else's car. Graham knew how to fix a flat tire thankfully, so I went outside to appear supportive and helpful. After a semi-truck passed me by and almost blew me over, I got back in the car almost in tears, muttering "I hate my life".

Anyways, it is FREEZING here and we finally turned on the heater for the first time tonight. We are so cheap.

Oh, and stay tuned.. Graham and I will be sending you a digital Christmas card.

Are Graham and dad blood brothers? I don't think I know anybody else who watches the weather channel other than those two....

Blah. Flat tires are the worst, and I never even have to change them. Sorry your weekend didn't turn out as planned. We are hoping Ian's parents are going to make it here this weekend to visit us, with all the snow. Enjoy your white Christmas!
