we've been back a week and a day. my ears seem to have equalized. I'm over the cold I may have picked up on the way back. (it could have been allergies, who knows.)

yesterday, we took our passports to get renewed, because we're not really going anywhere until November (M's conference is in Vancouver). we get them back in the mail in the next two or three weeks.

and then I started thinking about our upcoming anniversary.

eighteen years.

(which, long story short, symbolizes chai/life in Hebrew numerology.)

so where are we going next?

I don't know yet. but it'll be in the states.

(and we might staycation. I don't know. I'm just looking at options. we'll see.)
