Well, I have gotten trouble with Mr. Whisonant for not writing in the past couple of weeks so here is an update of nothing exciting! We have been sick with this awful cold thing that I think is made extra awful because it won't stop raining here. Thank goodness we brought some American medicine with us!
The last couple of weeks have been pretty non-eventful. Chris has continued with school and his classes are going well. They are almost to mid-term so he has a number of things going on this week and next. I continue to work on my cooking skills. I have to say that I think I am becoming quite talented. I guess when you don't have any other choice you better get a clue what you are doing! Chris seems to be healthy overall so unless he is sneaking food I don't know about then I think my cooking is serving its purpose.
Chris's mom sent us a box of goodies that we were missing (thanks, Cheryl!) and we have consumed an unbelievable amount of Snickers in the past couple of days! We have also enjoyed the Kraft Mac and Cheese since this can't be bought at our local store. We fly into Atlanta in 6 weeks and although we can't wait to see everyone we are very excited about the idea of Chick-Fil-A and Taco Bell. We have already decided what our first meal will be - Don't get between us and the Cracker Barrell!
My work continues to go well. Everyone there loves how I say, "yes ma'am / sir" and "no ma'am / sir". I told them that was great as long as they bought an LG TV while I was in the store - this has actually worked a couple of times. That reminds me - LG sent me a company cell phone to use and it is one of the now somewhat new LG Chocolate phones and is pretty cool.
This week we experienced what the locals were talking about with the daylight. It now is completely dark by 5:30 in the afternoon. This is not especially fun when you are trying to walk in heels in the dark and trip over the cobblestones and look like an idiot to the people in the buses watching you - believe me I have had this experience recently!
I better run. See everyone in 6 weeks!
