I'm a mom to a family of 4 children and 1 husband ;-) We're committed to getting to know new people, new experiences and most especially new food. We love long conversations and showing people around our little corner of the world.
GENERAL HOUSEHOLD STUFF (rules, guidelines, expectations – for you and for us): - There are two children in this house - it can get a bit chaotic. If you are looking for a serene and quiet place to stay or if perfectly neat and always dusted is your thing - we're probably not the place for you.
- Pets - we have two cats
- Drinking, drugs, smoking- we do drink and moderate and responsible drinking is acceptable. If it’s legal in OR, we are cool. This is a medical marijuana household. Smoking is permitted outside
-Curfew - We find it polite and helpful if we're aware of what time to expect you in the evenings. We prefer Folks to arrive by 8pm, especially on their first night.
-We're NOT a boarding house. I understand you're new to Portland and the rental market is awful and you're trying to get settled. I get it....but we still don't take in roommates for a month at a time.
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Be the change you want to see in the world.
We're all pretty much the same, with the same needs, desires fears.

Help in the house
We are deeply committed to cultural exchange, and are excited about this new (to us) exchange. We've hosted exchange students and love both hearing about other cultures and helping to navigate and understand American culture. We are very accustomed to helping with English skills.
We are looking for help organizing and decluttering. We have a large house and several children plus the detritus from several estates, and we would like to downsize and simplify.
