The Travel Bug

I was looking up home exchanges in Greece this morning. I'm thinking some time on one of the Greek islands would be really nice right about now--or any time, really. Four weeks would be perfect. Warren says four weeks is too long. It's true. He thinks it's possible to spend too much time in Greece! Can you possibly spend too much time on the sandy shores of the Mediterranean? I think not! Still, I suppose he's thinking money (someone's got to do it) and he may have a point. I'm going to continue planning, though, because planning doesn't cost a dime.

In the meantime I'm going to live vicariously through the Redpath family. They're friends from our homeschool group who are embarking on a whole year of travel this coming June. Yep, they're selling everything and hittin' the road. Or the skies--they're flying off to Serbia June 22nd. They've already started blogging about their preparations and they'll document the whole thing online. Meet the Redpaths:


And if anyone knows Oprah or Ellen, or has connections with the chewing gum company that paid Matt all that money to travel the world, maybe you could put in a good word for them.

In other news, the Lebowskifest is finally coming to Los Angeles on a weekend that Warren and I can attend! Woohoo! For the last few years it's been in San Francisco on the weekend of Jerry's birthday, so we haven't been able to go. But this year it's in May, right here in our hometown.

Tomorrow Jerry and I are going whale watching with the homeschool group and on Wednesday we're going to Shakespeariance. Plus, we finally opened up the chemistry kit that came in the mail a few weeks ago. So we've got to put in some "lab" time before the litmus solution we made goes bad. It's shaping up to be a very busy week. Looks like life is finally returning to normal.
