Girl Meets Bulgaria

Musings of an American expat in Bulgaria (with detours in Utah and Alaska)

Last Minute Chores


I slept in a little later than I probably should have this morning; but it felt amazing!

Weirdly, I am going to miss my little twin-sized air bed.

Yep, for the past 3 months I have been crashing on an aero bed on my bedroom floor.

Why, you ask? Well, right before I left for Alaska in May, I gave my bed to my cousin. She was in need of a “big girl” bed and I was moving anyway, so she got it.

I still like to visit it (read: pass out on it) sometimes when I am at my aunt and uncles house.

Come Thursday I will be sharing a full-sized bed with a very sweet Bulgarian. Don’t get me wrong, I am beyond stoked for that, but I can’t help but feel a little twinge of sadness to be saying goodbye to my own bed, even if it is just an air mattress.

Anywho, back to the point of this post…

I still have quite a lot to do and not enough time (I have to be at the airport at 9am tomorrow morning).

It probably doesn’t help that I slept in and am now writing a blog post.

Here’s a list of a few things I still need to do before boarding a jet plane tomorrow morning:

  • Pack (only one suitcase left!)
  • Finish cleaning my room
  • Go get all my money out of my personal bank account then close Vince and I’s joint account. No more Wells Fargo. Yay!
  • Visit with my friend A. to give her her Christmas gift
  • Visit with my cousin to say goodbye (I am going to tear up)
  • Make sure I have all my documents out in case I need my mom to do anything while I am gone (apostillations, translations, etc)
  • Find a missing earring. It’s one of my favs. Can’t leave home without it!
  • Sew up the little hole in my travel pillow

This has probably been my most interesting post to date, don’t you think? 😉

I promise more interesting stuff is headed your way.

(Can anyone say recipe for the BEST bean soup in the entire world?!–Yep, that’s coming up soon!)

Until tomorrow, my friends.

  1. have e good trip there.

  2. You’re going to miss a whole lot more than your mattress when you leave America, but then, you will gain a WHOLE lot more in Bulgaria! 🙂

    Have a safe flight, Whitney!


  3. Translations are usually easier to get done over there… and a whole lot cheaper too. 😀 for Appostile there is a website for that and they are fast…
