We are also planning a trip to Machu Picchu, Peru in January or February time frame.
Besides her gardening work and a planned addition to our U Street (with her WA PE stamp, she got the BUILDING PERMITS fairly quick), I guess she is pretty busy with her other stuffs and that is good.
There are a lot of positions still available in my place and, I have no doubt, she could help us a lot. But I discourage her to get into the work force again. I believe, there is no sense for us to have two incomes once more. With no one notices the baton, any non-short-term investment return is virtually nil to us. Instead, to enjoy today is the best. It is even more self-evident, in light of one of our good friends has been diagnosed with cancer recently, that every one can only visit this World once, not twice.
