Nose, meet grindstone. I know I don’t deserve to complain one bit as I just got back from a whirlwind trip abroad, but there’s one huge downside to travel: returning to reality. All too quickly, the weeks of exploring fade into the past only to reveal weeks of piled-up work. Having been slapped across the face with the length of my to-do list, I put my nose to the grindstone in a major way. That said, all’s quiet as can be here on the home front and I’ve got nothing fun to report about — unless your idea of fun involves bookeeping and errands. The good news is that there are a few stories I’ve been remiss to share about Lebanon and Sweden, so I’ll share those with you asap, if only to indulge in a daydream or two about when I can travel next!
