Hoppin' the Pond

Well my trip is almost over and I can't believe it. I have mixed emotions about going back. I miss my husband, my bed, and my friends, but wouldn't be against just bringing those three things here and not going back to the Middle East :) I will say though that his trip has reinforced the feeling that home truly is wherever my husband is. One day I hope to have an actual home tied to that concept, but that's probably quite a ways away at the moment.
We had a really big cold front, as I'm sure most of your are experiencing right now as well, so my outdoor activities have been limited the last couple days of my trip. I wish I could have run around the lake one more time, but 15 degrees is too cold! The thing I miss most about the States when I'm in Kuwait (besides family/friends) is the fresh air. I love being outside and just breathing deep. I've tried to savor it while I've been home, but I don't think you can ever get enough.
Wish me luck on my long trek over the pond and keep your fingers crossed for an uneventful trip. Kuwait is currently ramping up their celebratios for the 50/20 anniversary of Kuwait (50 years of independance and 20 years since the invasion), so that will be interesting to return to.
Everyone enjoy your day despite the cold and be thankful for all that you have.


  1. I wish you didn't have to go back either!
    Jason--Be Nice!
    We miss the both of you so much!
