Good Lord! What happened to us? What happened to all our plans to keep you all informed as we journeyed around the world?
In short, lots of things!
As noted in the last post, Jeff's job took him to San Francisco. For 4 months. Right before our trip. That left Jennifer and the kids home in Idaho, alone, with the job of finalizing everything for our trip. But one very big thing threw a kink into the whole works. Due to the job change, our little family was going to move to San Francisco!
Now, Jennifer was totally up for the change. The kids, notsomuch. But they were troopers, and got in all of their friend time before we left. The problem was, we had to not only gather and pack for our RTW trip (keeping in mind everything we brought was being carried on our backs, so weight was a major concern), we also had to decide what we were moving to SF with us, and what we could live without and put into storage. THIS was a difficult task for Jennifer to accomplish.
It all got done, we dotted all the i's and crossed all the t's. We left our dog with Jennifer's parents, and jumped on the plane. And Jennifer figured once that happened, there was nothing left to do but relax and enjoy all the work that went into making this moment happen.
So, now that we are home, settled, and back to normal, we can talk about our trip. All the stories, the adventures, and the beauty. We can't wait to share it all with you!
