I've been back in the States for 4 days now and can officially cross off numbers 1, 5, part of 7 (its snowing now!), 8 (although I will continue to savor the fresh air throughout my trip), & 9 off my to do list from my last post. Its been so nice seeing everyone and comforting how quickly I can slip back into a world of sanity :)
Yesterday I was sitting at a light and the two cars in the front of the traffic line were talking through their windows and obviously missed the light turning green. Everyone behind us just waited patiently as the two cars in front realized their tardiness. It was hilarious. In Kuwait everyone would be honking obnoxiously the second it turned green, if not before!*
I've been very busy so far visiting everyone. I did a horrible job packing for this trip and have severely underestimated how cold the snow is! I'm making due though and looking forward to doing some shopping soon. I forgot my little pocket camera though :( so I've only taken a couple pictures so far with my big camera. I'm pretty bummed I forgot it, but am trying to make due. Its hard to get the candid shots with friends with a huge camera, plus its a pain to carry around. I'll have to borrow everyone else's little cameras while I'm visiting, so prepare yourself!
I'm thoroughly enjoying not having any real obligations. I've finished one book so far and have eagerly dove into another. It's been too cold to do the jogging I was looking forward to, but I hope to do it in Texas when I get there.
More to come as I continue my visit to the States! Above are some shots I took this morning as a new batch of snow hit Ohio.
