It's Official

I can now leave the country. I walked to the mailbox yesterday thinking "wonder what bills came today" because it is bill paying time of the month. I opened the mailbox and thought it was interesting that there was a fancy USPS envelope in there, but the roommate is getting married so the mailbox has had more interesting things lately. However, this envelope was addressed to me. And it was from the government. And it contained my passport. WOOHOO! I had applied for it in June and was told that it would arrive around September 20. And they say the government never does anything in a timely manner. Well, they got this baby to me in about 6 weeks. So now I am "have passport, can travel" girl. Well, I can go to any country that requires a passport but no special series of shots. If I need shots, I probably won't be going anywhere anytime soon. I hate shots. I fear them worse than anything. But that is another post for another day.

I've always wanted to be that kind of girl! lol!! We've never had passports...we always have to take our birth certificates, etc....I need to post about the time that I accidently let Pete's birth certificate fly out of my hand and into the water when we were coming back into the US from the British Virgin Islands. I can tell you that the captain of the boat was not a bit happy about that mishap...we eventually got back into the country...lol!!
