On the brighter side of things, my friend Liz and I are going to Europe in March for a week. We're going to Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. This will be my first trip out of the country since I went to Australia when I was 18ish and I am excited about it.
I still have to get my passport, etc., and get into better shape for all the walking we will be doing. I'll be doing more walking as soon as the temperatures drop below the 100's they've been in for a few months.
