Two More Days
Here I am with my 10 boxes, three check-ins and one carry-on. Not sure if it’s good or bad that my life is so compact! Of course, we can’t see my 8 bins in the storage shed! This photo was taken yesterday, just before my dad and I hauled all those boxes to the Post Office.
While I have often commented that everything in life is negotiable, I can confidently inform you that that rule does not apply to shipping fees. I tried my best to get a “well prepared” discount, as some dude didn’t even have his boxes taped up. I pleaded for a holiday discount. I posed a “good helper” discount, as my dad and I helped stamp documents and put stickers on boxes. Discount for 10 boxes? Cuz we’re nice? Pretty please? Veronica just smiled and shook her head. Not negotiable. Bummer! I just hope that the staff member I get at the airline counter in two days will be more lenient with baggage fees. Fingers crossed.
Two more days. In between today and my departure is Thanksgiving. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and enjoy time spent with your loved ones. I’m especially thinking of my friends Bobby and Jeff…I hope they know how much they are loved, how many people are supporting them, are thinking about them and are thankful for them. They are two incredibly special people.
The next time you hear from me, I will have landed in Hanoi, started my exciting and already-busy, new job and hopefully will be settled into an apartment or house. Let the adventurous blogging resume!
Safe, healthy and happy holidays to you!
