Step 1 - Get the Passport!

Well, I took myself off to the post office today and got an application for a passport. It's HUGE, like a bloody novel to fill out...

The pic doesn't show just how thick the damn thing is!

Mind you, according to what I've read, I have to go and get a birth certificate first. Not sure what that will cost but will find out over the next few days what I have to do to get one.

It will be SO exciting to own a passport when it all comes together though - I've never been anywhere!

I Love it When A Plan Comes Together!

Well I'm back from Sydney and can start to wrap my head around the Next Big Holiday! Though of course this one will be the biggest of all time for me.

Well a bit of a plan is coming together. It's been my intention to head to Colorado first off to spend my birthday and Halloween with Aly and Jay. From there I had no real plan. But Aly has made the suggestion that she and Jay take me down to St Louis for a bit of a cyster meet up there (and I can say "Meet me in St Louis"... they'll all get sick of me singing the song!).

From there some of the Chicago girls have offered to pick me up and take me back to Chicago with them. I'd like to spend about a week in IL for a bit of a look around. And then head to Wisconsin to see Cindy, the Knapps and a cyster Sarah.

From WI I would love to head up to Canada to see Ian. It's been over a decade!

And that's the rough plan so far! From there... who knows? Of course... I AM looking for suggestions people?
