Sometimes, when you're overseas, you think to yourself, I can't believe this is my life! Because you're busy doing crazy things, in crazy places, sometimes with crazy people (thinking of you, Jen and Mary - driving just isn't the same without you).
Other times, you think to yourself, well, this isn't any different from life back in the States, except that I'm far from family and Costco rotisserie chickens.
I'm in a routine right now that simply isn't bloggable. I've been working a lot, doing some business writing projects (hey - they're paying me, and last I checked, you're not, so they get first dibs on my writing muscles). I've been experimenting with bread baking, trying out different types of loaves. I've been packing lunches, and grocery shopping, and taking kids to soccer practice, and putting laundry away, and reading to kids, and generally trying to balance life with four kids. I missed Kyra's Open House at school because I wrote it on the wrong day in the calendar. How pathetic is that?
My husband has been working the CRAZY hours - every post worse than the last, I think. I guess that's what you get when you go to a Danger Pay post. And he gets on a plane shortly for a trip to the States, so I'll be doing the single mother thing for awhile.
But all is well here - I'm still alive, if boringly busy at times.
