Oh my gosh! We woke up to frost on our windows this morning and I just checked outside and there is frost on the grass and our windows! I am afraid it is about to get VERY cold! We were told that it can be very cold from mid-October through April so I am afraid I might be entering my hibernation period soon.
I just realized that I haven't updated everyone on my job. I worked this past weekend and overall it went really well. I was basically on my feet for 14 hours spread out over 2 days. I am not sure that I would want to be an in-store rep for the rest of my life but we are hoping and praying that this might transition into another position with the marketing firm so we will have to wait and see. I was definitely a novelty as an American - I am afraid that I might have answered more questions about myself and life in the US than I did about LG. Can you believe that they tax here at 20%?! I mean I guess it pans out since you get healthcare pretty much free and they don't have sales tax on anything. I should clarify - the highest they can tax is 20% and for internationals like myself they start you out at the max and then you have to register for a NIN (basically a Social Sec. #) and they will adjust your tax and refund you what excess they took out. Apparantly, you never get a tax rate of less than 12% no matter what - which still seems like a lot.
I better run - Chris should be home any minute and I need to finish dinner. I know. How domesticated of me! Oh, I need to apologize to everyone. I know so many of you have emailed me and I haven't gotten back with you. I am working on it but I could literally answer email all day every day - so be patient! :)
Love you all.
