The first order of business I will do when I get back into the regular swing of things is to change back the frequency of our mortgage payments to bi-weekly. I had requested a change to bi-monthly to match my pay just in case D was unable to find work.
I've learned a lot of philosophical ideas from the Icelanders since I've been here. Also, I had no appreciation of what has happened to them financially as a nation either until I arrived, talk to people and read some periodicals. Once I get my head around it all, I'm going to dedicate a post or 2 about it.
I'm getting ready now to go home. It has taken a long time in transit to get here, to get back and I am very glad I made the effort. Now that I know how things work, it feels like another home base to me. Can't say when I'll return as there are other places I would like to see next but Iceland has a way of slowly creeping into you when you least expect it.
