Permits and The Hulk.

I called the Finnish Consulate this morning and found out that our residence permits are ready to go. The lady just needs to FedEx our passports back to us. I'm anticipating that they will arrive before Monday afternoon.

Last night Becky and I watched The Incredible Hulk and Get Smart in Sterling Heights. I liked the Hulk movie much more than Get Smart. It was even better than the previous Hulk movie. Check out the life-sized 8 foot replica they had in the theater:

Quick Update.

Just a quick update. We stopped in Tuscaloosa for the night instead of pushing to make it to Tennessee. This way, we get to see our friends once more too.

On our way?

Today's the day that we are supposed to start our trek to Michigan with a camping layover in Tennessee. I think we will be lucky to leave Covington by 3p today, so I'm doubtful that we will be camping in TN tonight. We still have to do some laundry, clean Becky's parents' house, and try to cram all of our worldly possesions back into my car.

Cross your fingers!

Oh, there has also been no word yet on our Finnish residence permits.

Here's a brief update on what's going on around here.

Becky and I have been visiting her friends and family and yesterday we were supposed to go on a swamp tour with her sister and nephew. The day before yesterday, I started to get a sore throat and I felt like total crap that night. I started to feel slightly better yesterday morning, but definitely not well enough to go on a boat ride. So we spent yesterday watching tv while I was trying to recouperate. Today we are meeting Becky's mom and step-dad at the Baton Rouge airport and will hang out with them all day tomorrow. On Tuesday we will start our trip to Michigan.

We sent our passports to the Finnish General Consulate last week and are hoping that they will be returned to us before July 2 with the required residence permits. I don't know what's going to happen if we don't get them back before then.

We also saw The Happening on Friday night and I didn't like it. It might be because I was feeling like crap during the entire movie.

Currently, I still have a sore throat and a slight cough, though the sore throat isn't as bad as it was.

Well Rested.

Wow, I slept a lot yesterday. I think I slept for about 10 hours the night before last, then I took a 2 hour nap with the cat during the day, then I slept for 8 hours last night. Geez.

Last night we (Becky, Becky's parents, and I) drove to Baton Rouge to see Becky's brother (Steven) perform his stand-up comedy routine at an open mic night. There were a lot of amateurs giving it a shot that night and it seemed like they all got at least one laugh. I had a good time.
