Honey, I’m Home (And I Had a Hard Day…)

The return home.

This is a blog post that was written over the course of many hours.  You should know, going in, that it has a happy ending.  — Hakunah Matata

In the end, it’s all okay…because Hakunah Matata!

I guess it really all started three days ago…on Monday.  Kate and I were in the Old City while it was raining.  I was in my lime green flip flops.  Remember this story? Continue reading “Honey, I’m Home (And I Had a Hard Day…)”

Continue reading “I Should be Studying…”

Well It’s Been Quite A While…

I started watching Doctor Who. Cooking and all-nighters ensue.

I feel like I should confess to you that my inner voice now speaks with a British accent due to over-exposure to Doctor Who.
