Portlander Problems #29

My problems this week:
1. I got lost literally four times on my way to meet friends last week out on the west side.  The east side is a grid.  The west side is confusing.  I hate the west side.
2. I'm feeling guilty because we purchased peppermint essential oil (to get rid of spiders) from Amazon instead of from a local specialty shop.  I like shopping local, but I mostly feel guilty because I bet I would have an awesome Portland-y story to tell you as a result of the trip.  I mean, what is more Portland than going down to Hawthorne and purchasing essential oils?
3. We have new neighbors.  I want to make them treats to take over and meet them, but I don't know what their dietary restrictions are and as Portlanders, they most likely abstain from something (or a lot of things).

If you live in the Portland area and want to share some of your own, I would love if you would submit your Portlander Problems to me. 
I will post yours one of these coming weeks.  E-mail me at kiralynnpdx@gmail.com.


  1. Peppermint oil gets rid of spiders? Tell me more! Never heard that.

  2. I'd go with a housewarming gift of some sort that might be related to living where you do now rather than the treat. Cause, yea... you never know!


I love to hear from you, and will do my best to respond to your comment! Please no spam :)
