Look what came today!

Officially, a few of the hurdles of getting underway are done. Last year, I lost my wallet and my ID, and since then, I have slacked considerably on getting a new California ID.

I finally got my birth certificate in the mail in February, then got my state ID in March, and now the passport has arrived. I suppose it’s probably about that time we start looking into traveler’s health insurance. Not something I’m very excited about. More on this later.

Still not much of a reprieve from work, but I hope to be able to have some more updates this week.




I know, we’ve been quiet lately. This last week has not been pleasant. I’ve been battling a bout of pink eye (yes, pink eye), traveling to Philadelphia to see Mia (seeing her was great, the flight? not so much) and battling this hellacious rain.

…But I’m back, firmly planted in Oakland (sad face) and ready to do some serious updates…that is after I unpack, do laundry, pay bills, mail rent, clean house, make dinner, do day job and eventually sleep. Ugh.

More tomorrow about our new and improved TRAVEL ROUTE (Schengen restrictions be damned).
