– 50% of parents have had one vaccine, and 50% have had 2! :D
– one year ago, we had plans and flight tickets to visit azores… but then the pandemic hit and it was all scrapped. this year, things feel a bit more settled, so we’re giving it another go in 2 weeks. the goal is to work like usual and spend the rest of it hiking around the islands of faial and pico, checking out all the trails and volcanos along the way.
– and now for the big cloud over our heads. what do you do when you get a letter from your landlord, stating they have a buyer for the house you’ve been renting for the past 6 years? as renters, we get to call dibs on the deal if we want to… but do we want to? i like the house well enough, and if we bought it at least we could finally fix some of its flaws… but it’s a huge place, and a huge chunk of money. on one hand, i like it here and don’t want to move (which might end up happening, if the new landlord decides). on the other hand, i don’t think i like it enough to get into debt over it. at the moment, it feels like all our options are bad, and it sucks. :(
– i wish we could do like tove jansson and get ourselves a little island to live on. sigh.
