Been awhile since I updated you guys here, sorry.
The Taiwan tours for 2011 are done. The May tour was alright, but had a few problems. The August tour was near perfect. And I’m guessing that 2012 tours will be even better than both. The tours really do seem to get better and better with time (I’ve also been raising the price each year). After having done 3 tours I seem to have the knack of it. And I’ve learnt more and more fun things to do and see while giving the tours. Although I’m starting to get a lot of repeat business already so I may have to adjust the routes regardless. We’ll see.
With the tours done and my private series distributed and underway I have a lot less stress. In a couple of weeks I’m going to be taking my wife and son on a vacation of sorts. It will be my son’s first time on a plane. Should be interesting.
My wife and I have been getting along well enough. I haven’t changed…..she’s just started making more of an effort. Our marriage almost came to an abrupt end a couple of months back…..and I think she had some time to think about life without me….and she didn’t like what she saw. So she’s been pretty tolerable since then. But there’s a big difference between tolerable and love.
My son is awesome and I’m loving every minute spent with him. I applied for his passport….which was/is another stress. The passport is supposed to be done by the 14 of Sept. But one of my “references” on the application form didn’t answer the phone when they called him and they haven’t called him back since……according to the rules that means they haven’t sent my application for the passport out yet. But since they haven’t phoned me either I’m guessing they just processed it anyway. We’ll see.
Need to buy some luggage and slowly start packing. Got a house guest just in time for my vacation…..he’s going to watch my dogs. The timing with that was amazing. Almost like “fate” or whatnot. And speaking of the dogs….they are both doing fine. BaoBao had some kind of bad flu….that was all. We put her on antibiotics and she got better quick.
I’ll be uploading vids to YouTube from my vacation destination so for those of you that don’t know where I’m going (cheap bastards) you’ll have to wait a few weeks to see.
