Back on the Blogroll



I apologize for my short yet necessary break from blogging in order to get my crap together before I ship off in 13 days.

I have been to Colorado to say goodbye to my urban family, and I have come back to Kansas City to say goodbye to my Croatian family.

I am currently pulling my hair out trying to figure out what to pack.

I have a large duffle and am about to embark on purchasing a framed backpack - as my other one is completely inefficient for my 27 month journey. I never knew how expensive it would be to join the Peace Corps.
These next couple of weeks I'll be packing, and unpacking, and packing again until I get it right. I'll also be painting my mom's new house which she bought a month ago. I'll put pictures up, but I think it fair to say that I don't know the first thing about painting a house. Just another first in the next couple years to come.

Yesterday, although sick, I went to see the Kansas City section of the Tour of Missouri. It was quite exciting, and made me want to someday go to the Tour de France. I think when I get back from Paraguay and my Peace Corps issued mountain bike, I will get more into my cycling and even buy a custom bike. It would be great to get one from Josh's brother, but I have a feeling I won't be able to afford a local celebrity like him!

If you get a chance, check out the tour on the Versus Channel. You might see me cheering away!

Okay...so maybe after the 2 years you can forgive us for not meeting up with you while you were in denver. it was absolutely bad timing since we had company the whole time you were here...but that is still a lame excuse. we can't wait to hear all about your travels. i am hoping you love it so that you also don't resent me for being the one that got the application processed....thanks for the clinic's landscaping btw ;)
Paraguay is already a better place because you will be there. and no I am not saying that to kiss your ass.

27 months? Maybe by then you will be able to afford (rather desire) a custom bike built by yours truly.

Also, you must call before you leave and stop by for a few minutes. If that beauty of a Huffschwien Flyer didn't sell at the garage sale, I can store her safely until your return, perhaps making over as a welcome home gift???
