All My Bags Are Packed

Other than a few items that can’t be added until tomorrow, our bags are packed and ready to go.

In two days we’re leaving on a jet plane, don’t know when we’ll be back again. Okay, things will more than likely work out, but we’re still dealing with the fingerprint drama. I woke up around 5:00 a.m. and after about 30 minutes of wondering finally got up to check email in hopes that the U.S. Embassy had responded with good news. No response. Bummer. Guess more phone calls will be made this morning.

What else is on tap for today? Housework and errands. Hum, that sounds pretty much like a typical day for me. And you were probably thinking I was going to post something exciting!!!!
