Hi Cynthia, 

I know these posts are from a while back, but we just moved here (currently house sitting in the Alberta Arts District) and I am looking for like-minded people to connect with.  I've got to fill out my profile info and see exactly how this site works...in the meantime I will tell you I am 38, sold my CO based bath and body products biz last fall (Mountain Girl Organics) and have been on the road house and pet sitting with my boyfriend since we sold his house in 2009 : )  I would love to write more and am going to make it a priority here in PDX.  Am going to check out your website now as I am a HUGE fan of green cleaning...

Portlander, for sure! :) Where will you be putting all of your boxes, which neighborhood that is?

Very nice. Yes I know about the whole not unpacking for awhile. I learned though, that moving was the best way for me to purge all the stuff that I never use and really don't want anymore! Turns out it is a great feeling. :)
So do you know where you will be living? Do you have friends or family here?
