This newsletter gives you five highlights from Tod Baker's week.

Hi,
I hope all is well and you are enjoying your summer.
This week I put a box on my driveway, picked up our work visas, enjoyed live music, fretted over language, and put root beer in my smoothie.

Storing stuff ๐Ÿš›
We will store our precious stuff in the 8x8 foot container you see below which will be stored in an climate controlled warehouse.
Tatiana and Rosario stand in our storage container. Sasha was underwhelmed.
Weโ€™ll probable unload about that much stuff to Goodwill as well. Weโ€™ll rent our house furnished, so most of our furniture will stay in the house. Tati has been building a house inventory and it turns out, much to my surprise, that we have 180 items and counting on the inventory. How?!?! When?!?!
Visas! ๐Ÿ›‚
Our Kuwaiti work visas arrived today!
Kuwait lands the first visa in Tod's four-year-old passport. (Someone's got to get out of the house more.)
That makes it official. Weโ€™re good to go now. Let the countdown begin! Days to departure = 27
Blues on the Green ๐ŸŽธ
We enjoyed listening to Wild Child at Blues on the Green Wednesday night. The 10 musicians on stage found their groove (Or did I find their groove?) about five songs into their set. It was a great joy to watch them play. We also saw Los Coast. Iโ€™ll be keeping my eye on them. Blues on the Green is a free and fabulous summer get together for the whole family. Even if you donโ€™t like the bands on stage, you will like the crowd, food, sunshine, and just coming together with people to celebrate a beautiful day with music.
Language matters ๐Ÿ’ฌ
We need to recognize the language that causes an ugly part of our brains to stop seeing other people as people.
and frightening.
Simply put, there is something hardwired in our biology to care less about people when they are presented as less self-actualized than we are.
Summer smoothie ๐ŸŒ
I blended a blueberry, banana, and root beer smoothie and loved it!
