Have to kick off the kicks. Gel shoe inserts are not permitted (shoes with gel heels are allowed);(except if you are 12 & younger or 75 or older).

Current TSA Rules:You are allowed to bring a quart-sized bag of liquids, aerosols, gels, creams and pastes in your carry-on bag and through the checkpoint. These are limited to 3.4 oz (100 ML) or less per item. Placing these items in the small bag separate from your carry-on baggage facilitates the screening process. Pack items larger than 3.4 oz or 100 ML in checked baggage. Any liquid, aerosol, gel, cream or paste that alarms during screening will require additional screening.

That being said, I have experienced the sense of pain, annoyance, frustration and “please let this torture end,” or “I will never get this hour back” moments because of poorly-run meetings. There are a few… Continue reading Prepping For THAT Meeting… (well, every meeting)

4 more days till the big move! I have included some pics of the place pre-move-in…it’s definitely tiny but so cute! Should be interesting to see the result of the rooms with furniture included! In addition to our big move there has been lots of activity in the last few weeks. I am still adjusting… Continue reading November Happenings!
This blog post took me a while to write, not because I was strapped for time but rather because I was just purely exhausted. I didn’t feel the extreme fatigue of jet lag this time around; it only took me about a day to be OK again. I had rescheduled my flight to ensure that… Continue reading An expat no longer…
Here I sit on this lovely (though chilly) early evening, laid up from a bad cold. I have managed to get my usual weekend gym time in but it has been pathetic with severe difficulties breathing normally so I am really praying one more night of good sleep will ensure I wake up with an… Continue reading History in the making
As Regina Spektor sings in her new song “All the rowboats” – they all are ready to sail away. My time in London is slowly coming to a close but I am still embracing all of the opportunities possible. I have a strong interest in ticking off the items on my bucket list; and so… Continue reading All the rowboats…
So a lot has happened in the last couple of weeks! One big item is my relocation back to the US! It’s a bittersweet move for me because I have really grown to love and care about the people and places here. London does feel like home away from home now – I no longer… Continue reading Big changes.
