  • The Home Stretch 1 week ago Hard to believe but the movers come one week from today (Deep breath, everyone). As you might expect, the beginning of June was a whirlwind of graduations, good-byes, shopping and coughing (great timing for a sinus infection, right?) Grrr. Some days I feel totally in the groove, cranking along on...
  • Ready or Not, It's Planning Time 2 months ago I can’t place my finger on exactly when it happened, but sometime in the last week we kicked into full on prep mode.

I recommend this blog for the Gold. As a former FS employee who never had blogs or cell phones or skype this is the best way in the world to keep track on what is going on in the country they are living in.
