Only 15 more days? How did that happen?
We keep checking in with each other about whether or not it is time to panic yet.
I have our carry-on bag packed; except for a few goodies like snacks, phones, and - oh, yes! Kevin's passport. It's a long, complicated story, but the short version is that his passport has been with the passport people for two months now. We discussed it at lunch and decided to panic tomorrow. That will give us 10 business
 And there's the doorbell!
 Well, no need to panic tomorrow!

Also, I must remember to pack Orwell.


I looked at him bemusedly. "Being married to you is an exciting adventure."
He looked... worried.
 I laughed. "You know, when we are watching those international shows on TV; I just think: 'Oh, look. They went to Lithuania. How nice.' But you?  You think: 'Oh, look. They went to Lithuania. I wonder what it would take to get us to Lithuania.' And then you set your mind to work on that until you have it figured out."

It's not Lithuania, though; it's Holland.
We're leaving in 25 days.
