I’ve been away….


A trip back to the United States to visit family has sort of slapped me with the realization about how long I’d been away and how easily I’d forgotten little things about life here.    Just a few things of note…..

It rains here.   Often.

People drive with a lot of caution here.  You will be among the majority if you leave a carlength between you and the car ahead.

Jetlag traveling east-to-west is a lot less than the same travel west-to-east.  I’m sure there’s some explanation for that….

People here eat supper really early… like 5 – 6 pm.

Ice cream does not have to be mushy by the time you get it home from the grocery store – even without those little insulated bag dealies.

No matter how long you sit at the speaker behind the Chik-fil-a, if it’s Sunday, they ain’t taking your order.  *shrug*

It’ll be good to get back home!

About DebbieT

I followed my husband to Dubai for a job. Then, I followed him to Bahrain for another job. Now we live in a bigassbus and travel all over the US, seeing all the things we missed before. I adore adventure and hate that wench on the WiiFit. Collecting experiences is my new hobby. I type and write just like I speak - fast with a lot of errors, and they don't trouble me at all. I have a very short attention span, am able to Google for something and not come up for air for hours, I am an encourager, a cheerleader, organizer and able to juggle multiple projects at once.

  1. I’ve MISSED you! You’re my favorite blogger and yes, your presence was missed. Glad that you made it back safely.

    • Wow Danyelle, so very kind of you to say that… thank you!! I’m about to be getting MUCH better at consistent posts – watch! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. It must be strange to have expereinced this – it shows how adaptive you are though and have taken on your new life.

    • It was an odd feeling, to be sure. But it was interesting to note the adaptability of the human creature…. we do figure out how to meld to our environment….. or die. Thanks for following along.
