Well I made it home for almost 48 hours. Enough time to go to 2 parties and make a trip up to Portland for furniture purchasing and shipment to our house from Hawthorne Vintage. Mr. Monkey will be reassembling the wall unit we purchased while I'm on my work trip in so-hot-it-doesn't-matter-that-it's-a-dry-heat-Phoenix. Next week I'll be back in Phoenix and I have reservations to go with friends to Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West in Scottsdale - I'm so frikin' excited!!!
