I Heart America

Since arriving in the US last Sunday....

7: The number of Christmas gifts bought
9: The number of cars on 290 that sped up when I tried to pass them on the way to/from Austin
0: The number of times I gave them the finger
9: The number of times I wanted to
1: The number of used condoms in the parking lot of the Love's truck stop on 290
6: The number of vegetables that came with my entree at Cafe Lux (Who says Americans are excessive?)
1: The number of railroad crossings that came down on my rental car while sitting at a ridiculously long Houston light
6: The number of donuts consumed
3: The number of them that were chocolate with sprinkles
1,000: The number of times that I have gotten in someone's way or caused a minor pedestrian traffic jam because I am walking on the LEFT of everything
5: The number of times people have asked me "So, are you actually going to HAVE the baby in Malaysia?"
2: The number of near meltdowns
1: The number of times I totally lost my shit
3: The number of times I was told how hot my anti-embolism stockings were. You know you want a pair.

She's trying to set a good example for The Baby. On ultrasound pictures, looks like he is already learning how to extend that digit. ;)

Happy to see you are having an eventful stay. Hope all is well and you and your family have a wonderful Holiday together. We have family traveling in to say goodbye to us on our last Christmas in the states. Boys are getting excited about the move. I am getting scared of how long it will take to get my belongs to K.L. on my sea shippment. We will be traveling to K.L. (me and Marcus w/out the boys) in Jan. Will let you know what dates we will be in K.L. Marcus has been in Malaysia for a few weeks working and just got the news that he "will be home for Christmas". Know anything about the International Schools in K.L. Need all the feedback I can get. Have a nice Holiday! Don't eat too much!
