An Announcement & A Request

Please excuse the relative silence that has ensued here; I’ve dived into a frenzy of packing. With taking care of Toby and prepping to leave this apartment at the end of this month, posting here will be lighter than usual. Don’t worry–I have several things I want to write about. And I’ll be announcing a large switch once we move into our new place.

Where is our new place? Well, we knew in January that were either going to move to another apartment in the area or to Oregon. I packed one box per weekday in the month of January in anticipation, and I’m happy to announce that we’ll soon be residents of Salem, Oregon.

While you cheer for us, I’ll be continuing our day-to-day existence–dealing with colds and unnecessary runs to the doctor about ear infections. Glares and grumbles from people in my local burger place as I try to calm a crying baby and fill my empty stomach so he can have food, too. A request for you: please don’t glare at mothers who have crying children in public places. We’re conscious of our interruption, we’re trying our best to rectify it, and we don’t even mind if you pick up your food and move away from us. Or even if you comment about it. Or if you pity us. But please don’t glare. It hurts.

About The Original Kate

Along with artistic tendencies, Kate enjoys unusual people and is constantly striving for some sort of nonconformity. Kate offers a perspective that is thoughtful but well-written and full of images within the words. Other tidbits that might intrigue: she has very long auburn hair, and, you guessed it, her favorite color is orange.
