In fact, if you stretch that imagination to the limit, he barely survived China. His idea of a vacation is the Watchung Mountains. They are 10 minutes from our house. This way we could come home to sleep, and the drive is just the right amount of time.
We can't even move out of Jersey because the newness of anything is not his cup of tea.
Which is one of the reasons, when we found out that we were not going to have to travel to Africa to get our daughter, it made him super happy. He is more then willing to pay a chaperone to bring her to us.
This morning, I got the email.
The law changed.
At least one of us has to go to DRCongo.
Other then the extra financial hardship, I am good to go. He is not.
I told him I could go by myself. Or take a friend.
We will see.
Until then, Beautiful Jesus, keep our daughter safe until I get there.
