Don't be on it. That's my advice to you if you have any hopes of staying sane or having an enjoyable flight whatsoever. This is the flight that I will be getting on in the very near future. Correction- myself, a one-year-old, a two-year-old and a little dog will soon be getting on that flight. Those of you who know me, understand that I am not a math person, but even I can tell that I will clearly be outnumbered to the point that either I or the rest of them will have to spend some/all of the flight drugged/drunk in order for us to arrive in one piece and possibly the remaining passengers as well. A friend mentioned that stickers kept her little guy busy in an airplane for a good 20-30 minutes... any tips for two kids for a 12 hour flight? Any at all? Is this mike even on?? You can get back to me...

no- i'm not pregnant for those of you who have bets going... if that were going to happen, it would have been 6 months ago. the news of today is... we'll be heading to tucson, arizona for our next assignment! if you're family and you like us, then you'll be happy-most of you live out west. if you're friends, you'll be happy because you are so dispersed, it doesn't make that much difference where we are to you! at any rate, compared to our current location- south korea (for those of you who are really out of touch) we are much closer to all of you! i'll be coming back stateside 25 july and jay will be coming home sometime between oct and dec.... one cannot keep track of that boy's comings and goings. so, now we know and so do you!

well, after much anticipation from myself as well as my friends who have been encouraging me to start this thing up...here we go. numero uno. it's been difficult to jump into this, much like jumping into a preexisting double jump rope game. wait...wait...wait...NOW! no, NOW! no, wait... NOW! WHACK! WHACK! game over. this feeling comes from a few places, i suppose. although i'm a gregarious and outgoing person, i'm also extremely private and reclusive. that being said, putting my thoughts and feelings out for all to read makes me feel kinda...naked? and let me tell you...it's cold out there! second, there seems to be a rumor out there that i am a talented writer...translation, great expectations. to put it simply, i write the way i think...sometimes it works... other times, not-so-much. finally, when so much has already happened which has formed who i am, where in the world do i begin? walk with me. on this journey, i'll be doing most of the talking, but please let me know what you think and feel... it's important to me and i would love your company.
