Two Good Weeks

Well I kind of disappeared for a couple weeks there, but for good reason. It's been a rough year for my family. We lost my mom's best friend less than a year ago, my grandpa 6 months ago, and my grandma just recently. It's been really strange being on the sidelines on the other side of the world. I can email, IM, and Skype till I'm blue, but that's still not quite the same as actually being there.

But I was able to be there for these past couple weeks, and it was really great. I haven't spent that much time in the US in over a year, and not that much time at home for a couple years. The last couple times I've gone home as well I was usually busy the entire time with family and/or holiday events, giving little free time. Combine that with the jet lag that I would usually get used to just before I went home again too.

This time was a little different though. And while in town, I was able to do all those American things I've been missing - like ribs, pizza, beer, ranch dressing, bbq sauce, buffet, tex mex, cereal, etc... I was also get some much needed shopping in, you know, at stores where the clothes and shoes fit me. I also stopped at the supermarket and bought a few things... like... 20 lbs or so groceries I brought home... What?! You can't get this stuff over here!

Also, all you can eat ribs!

And a good ole American barbecue. Drool...

And finally, we had a ton of brush and fallen branches from some recent storms, so we had a huge bonfire in our backyard.

Complete with marshmallows.

Yea, it was good to be home.
