Santa was good to everyone at our house. He brought Ann, Jacob, and Dave digital cameras to record our adventure in Russia. He also brought big suitcases for the three of us. Sam and Joey got socks and underwear.
The State Department was also good to us, as they deposited a lump sum of almost $22,000 to fund our travels and expenses into our bank account. There might be a little more money coming, but I think this is the majority of it. So, I did what any guy would do: I spent the day on Cars.com. Its a good thing they don’t have a “buy it now” button.
