Nothing like the U.S. of A.! Especially for the holidays.
I don't know what you do, that you're out of the country, but I know I'm glad to read your posts. And that you can stay with us.

thanks, Quicksilver..........I'm just an expatgirl living in an expat world (just sing it with the Madonna lyrics).............I follow my hubbie around...........and keep him company..........and put up with tons of inconveniences along the way...but I really do love this life........I love telling people that I'm from KZ........the look on their faces are priceless......they literally want to ask you where the h....... that is but they don't want to appear ignorant.......some are quite honest...where the h......is that???? I sure didn't know when I found out we were coming here...............and it's such a HUGE country and rich in history, culture, resources, and wonderful people............geography was NEVER my best subject..........still isn't.........neither is learning foreign languages.....too old and too good at using sign language..............what is it about my face........I must look Ukrainian.....sorry Dave and Charlie........was told that I did..............I'm always stopped in the middle of the streets and asked questions.........wished that I could concentrate and learn the lingo........now there is a concerted movement for the locals to learn Kazahk which is infinitely more difficult than Russian........nyet.......not happening in my lifetime.............I was never more proud of the US ambassador 2 years ago than at the opening inauguration of the new US Embassy when Ambassador John Ordway addressed the Kazakhs both in Russian and flawless Kazakh.............they were impressed.......I was crying along with his wife, MaryJo.........she said that he had practiced so hard to get it just right................

I know that for some unknown reason I am in a grumpy mood today.
I know that DH always takes the brunt of it and doesn't deserve it.
I know that he made a nice fire in the fireplace so I can go ice my leg and crochet
I know I should go do that before the ice bag melts and the fire goes out
I know I need to PM some people later today.
I know that just writing this down I am feeling a little less grumpy.

I know that I am missing my husband very very much and that while I love Mexico and think of it as home.. HOME IS where he is and he's not here... I'm ready to go back to seattle!!! I know I will freeze my butt off when I get there but his hugs will keep me warm.
