I'm in Colorado with Emily this week. She hasn't been doing well and we're trying to decide if Colorado is really the place for her.

Meanwhile, I'm deciding that Colorado is the place for me. I cut my Advair intake in half and still have only about 20% of the coughing I have back in Oregon. It is so nice to just breathe. And the sunshine. Oh my, the SUNSHINE. How can anyone not be healthy here??

And would you believe that I will be in Colorado at the very time an amazing event is taking place--the Highway 50 Coast to Coast Yard Sale. Yes, coast to coast. You can read more here. And it goes right through this town. We're heading out in the morning, and who knows where you'll find us by Sunday--Indiana, maybe, or California if we follow our noses west.

Quote of the Day:
Me: Arrggh, I just make such an idiot out of myself all the time.
Emily: But you're a lovable idiot.


  1. I think we're late to the party. US50 goes through 2 miles south of our house, and crosses our county from east to west, but apparently no one is organizing the event locally. This is the first I've known about it.

    If you come all the way to Kansas, look for the dead armadillo we hit the other night on US50 near High Point Road in Reno County.

  2. Dorcas,
    I was looking for more answers on my own mold allergy and the related symptoms when I ran across this blog from a family that suffered from toxic mold exposure. I immediately thought of Emily and her health issues. For what it's worth.... By the way, you have to read a little while to actually get the whole story, but it was pretty interesting.

  3. Please give Kay a hug from me!! :-)

  4. I've always wanted to go to that garage sale.

    I'm sorry Emily is not doing better. I'll be praying for her.

  5. Is there a possibility of something in the house she's living in more than the community????? Just a question that popped into my head.
