I knew there would be a lot to do, but phew! - there really has been a lot happening.
Putting together a mailing out a newsletter to folks is more work than I thought. C and I wrote the newsletter, she developed a mailing list, then we printed out over 275 mailing labels, licked 275 stamps, folded 275 copies, and finally got them all in the mail last weekend. We’d like to send out another newsletter before we go.
We also have some presentations to make. The first will be this Thursday evening, and we’ll both do the PowerPoint “dog & pony show.” More are scheduled for next month and November.
But, there are other things as well. Wanting to have everything as tip-top as possible, I had my doc do a good physical exam. The decision was made to repair a small hernia before we go. So – this Friday I’ll let them carve on me. We’re still trying to get the blood pressure down to a more acceptable level.
Looming on the to-do list are insurance papers, retirement income planning, closing bank accounts, getting someone to watch the house, power of attorney to some lucky fool, more newsletters, changing email accounts, selling one of the cars, more speaking engagements, visa applications, yada yada yada.
And, in the middle of all this, I’m still at work – and that includes a week long business trip to the Philippines.
Getting to Viet Nam will finally give us a chance to relax!
