Blech. Winter sure is here right? Blech. Like I said, I'm learning to be comfortable in my uncomfortableness, but geez oh pete oh pete. Blech.
Things are zooming along quite nicely over here.
One thing I forgot to add yesterday as I went writing along was that the end result of my losing my fear in the face of uncertainty, is that ...well....
John and I bought our tickets to Thailand.
There was a lot ALOT of back and forth about this decision, is it responsible, is it the right thing to do in the middle of a recession with two out of work people?
And the answer we came up with is a resounding yes. We have some thoughts about this trip that go beyond honeymoon. I think its important right now for both of us to see the huge entire world. I think its important right now to see that people lead all kinds of lives, not just the 9-5 one. It's important to see that our struggles in Chicago are a miniscule part of what is going on in the world.
And will there ever be this chance again? To steal away for a few weeks just the two of us?
Anyway, we're going. January 23. Everyone put on your thai skirts and shirts, cause John and I are going to see the tuk-tuks.
