Word count: 45058 | Since last entry: 577 | This month: 2981 Spent the weekend with my parents in McMinville (didn’t make Bend on account of too much snow in the pass). Saw the Spruce Goose, stayed at the Hotel Oregon, played games, talked, ate too much. After seeing them off at the airport today, Kate encouraged me to sit down and write, and I did. Thanks, Kate! To bed now.
