I'm downtown today trying to renew my passport as quickly as possible. When I went in to get my Chinese visa last week I was told they won't give me a visa as my passport expires in Jan of 2015. As I leave for Budapest next week and have to have my passport for that, I'm having to sneak the new passport in first and then go for the visa in the 2 weeks that I'm home between Hungary and China. I did apply my passport today and I get it back on the 17th so that's pretty quick. Still not confident enough to get the visa in between then and my Hungary departure. So - Ill do that when I get back.
In the meantime while I was down, I decided to I over to Irving Park and pick up her stuff. I hopped on the brown line and got over and met with Jenna who brought me to their basement storage unit and pulled out a box... And a bag... And both were full:). There's boots, shoes, clothes, books and papers and a coffee mug (which I had given her New Years two years ago:). It made me laugh - and now Ill need to add that to my big bag list and get all that in. But Im happy she'll be reunited with her stuff!
