Would you believe... after being on and off the phone since 4:30 am pacific time... I now know that my passport was mailed to the expedition agency in OHIO! I'm in California... this is not good. I also know that there was no mail pick up on Saturday so it is still in the mail room in Houston and can quite possibly be retrieved... spark of hope... no wait... it was mailed on Saturday... ohhh... but may end up in a PO box in Houston... weak flicker of hope quickly dimmed by the realization that, although these people all sound very nice and concerned, they don't know any more than I do about my passport!
On the bright side, God has granted me a measure of peace and acceptance that is finally settling in... one way or another. (And the Margaritas here in So Cal don't have tainted ice!)
Now, I'm going to go vacuum and knit... then knit some more.
PS... I'm really think I need to change the label for these posts to "Not Travelling".
