Perhaps a Blog Name Change is in Order?


I am no longer an expat.

In three short weeks, M will no longer be an expat either.

It really is quite a long story, but I’ll try to summarize:

The whole thing started about a month ago, when we found out about a family issue involving my stepdaughter. Add to that several days of wondering how to handle said situation, until deciding that it would be best if we moved back to the US. Then throw into the mix the fact that a few days later I started having contractions. And not just a couple. At 25 weeks. Then add to that a hospital stay, some medication (which I’m still on), a hastily made trip back to the US as soon as my doctor cleared me, and here we are.

So hopefully this explains why this blog has been so quiet lately. I’ve been a little distracted. But you should hear more from me now that I am back and getting settled into a bit of a routine.

As for me, I am not on bedrest, but on a vague “take it easy” sort of regimen which involves medication, working from home most days, and (apparently) eating bizarre quantities of food, all while finding none of it all that appealing. The baby and I are fine, which we are so unbelievably thankful for.

Sooo…..our repatriation begins. Hmmm...perhaps a new name for this blog might be in order...

I'm so happy you are back but worried about you.

Call me or email when you can so we can catch up.

Glad to hear that you and the bambino/a are doing well. What a whirlwind of a month you've had!

Readjusting to your non-expat status would be a little rough without all these other factors. I'm sure having M back in a few weeks will be a big relief too.

I wish I had a suggestion for a witty new blog title for you, but I'm not so good at those things.

I do.

I know it sounds mean, internet, but Triad 3 will get it and laugh.

Duh. I'm Triad 1. She's Triad 3. There's a Triad 2, but she's snobby and won't post on here. :)

I'm glad you make it back safely. I've been wondering. You must be relieved the flight went without a hitch.

When will Matt leave? He can email us if he'd like to have a final get together before he blows this joint ;)
