My husband and I have a dream, to quit the corporate world and spend a year (or more) traveling and sight-seeing. Logistically we need to have saved enough money to cover our expenses for a year. That’s a difficult thing and would mean much less shopping for me. I’ll probably have to stay very busy to distract myself from the beautiful apparrel I cannot own. We’ll need to buy a camper, probably a fifth wheel, something big enough to provide a real refrigerator and stove for cooking real meals. We’ll need meds, and emergency meds for the cat.

 Otherwise, we can’t wait. Our next steps now are to make a list of anticipated expenses, needs for being away a year, and a long list of where we want to go. I get dreamy thinking of us being in a camper with a view of a national park outside of our window. Hopping out of bed to make breakfast in beautiful scenic places that we can stay in until we have done every hike and taken every picture we wanted. If we realize this dream, how on earth will we go back to corporate world afterward? Time to be together and laugh. Imagine, time for stories and books on tape during travel, hiking, canoeing, biking, every day, doing whatever we want.

I wanted to start this blog ages ago, but you know how that goes. In just two short weeks, my husband and I will be heading to Cooperstown to see Cal Ripken inducted into the Hall of Fame! Does that rock or what!! What’s even more, is that we’ll have a vacation in Montreal and the Adirondacks.

I have 20 pounds to lose by July 28. Just in case I get to have my picture taken beside Cal Ripken. Not likely I know. And right now, I’m craving Thai leftovers, so I may just have to purchase an emergency wardrobe in black. It’s slimming.
