It’s been about a month since I left Portland on my goodbye tour of the US (which has lasted longer than anticipated unfortunately).  In that time I’ve stayed with several different friends and family members, with a few nights at a hotel thrown in for good measure.

Aside from one short night at a hotel in Chicago I am now alone for the first time in a month.  The friends I’m currently staying with have fled DC to escape inaugeration chaos and I have 4 days of just chillin’ solo in front of me and honestly, I’m going to cherish every one of them.

It’s not that I don’t love being around the people I’ve been staying with, but as someone who has been living by myself for the last 3+ years, a month solid of being a guest in someone else’s house has been  challenging.  So while I give huge thanks to every one who has put up with me occupying their guest rooms, I also have to thank my current hosts for giving me the last few days of me time I’ll probably have for a while.

Thanks guys!  You rock my world!
