I suppose it was inevitable. Moving to a new country means new germs, and I got a good one last week. I had to cancel yoga, a pedicure and Salsa night for this stupid flu bug (I know, don’t you feel sorry for me). More importantly, I didn’t get much work done for my previous (now current) employer, who is keeping me on for a few months as a consultant (yay!). So it’s time to get back to work.
Our maid put together a nice little arrangement using flowers from our yard. Her attempt to make me feel better definitely worked. So did the fresh lemonade.
P.S. I started this blog one year ago today by describing the steps that L went through to become a Foreign Service Officer. Little did I know that in a year I would go through steps 1-7 myself. I’m on the register, but on the Do-Not-Call list until we can find a way to link up as a tandem couple. Where will we be next September?
