The check finally arrived. Wheew I'm glad that's over. I was getting really stressed that I hadn't planned things well. I've got most of what I want to have done here in order now. I need to start an account with the check so I have money at hand so to speak without carrying lots of it on my person.
We got the headsets for the computer to use Skype and the computer is set up to make the calls. So things are sort of going better. I feel like a major weight has been lifted off.
Just a few more loose ends to tidy up and I'll feel good about the trip.
