Hometown Return

Finally I'm back in the house where I grew up.

After nearly 3 weeks in country and not being "home" it's nice to be back, yet it isn't really home anymore. My stuff is still here, but there's lots of new stuff, too. It's like I'm only a visitor, which I really am now.

Who knew it would be like this?

Now it's on to visiting friends I haven't seen in ages and appointments and organizing my stuff for the return to Siem Reap. How will I ever fit all my things into my suitcases and make the airline weight requirements?

With one week to go before the long flight back, it's a little daunting imagining what I need to do.

Tomorrow I have a dentist appointment and then lunch with the office ladies.

Next week will be eyes and basic check-up.

snappin' with the Advantix

Hanging around my aunt's chillin trailor park waiting for my mom to arrive to pick me up. No, I'm not underage, just an ex-patriot who didn't have my own car at the time.

The lady in red was snappin off pics of the landscape, especially the seasonal objects in the background. I think half of them were cookie jars. And, low and behold, upon inspection this was found to be conclusive.

Note the artsy shirt.


This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.

Welcome 2006!

Happy New Year!

I'm in Nevada and it's snowing. This gal is not used to such bone-chilling weather. Where oh where are those sunny, dry days in Cambodia?

Me and the fam took a drive out into the snow in the SUV just to get out of the house. Lil B loves riding and shopping even more. So much, it puts him to sleep, but we don't have to worry about fussing.

Now of course Big Sis didn't mind cussin out every other driver for being idiots either because the truck had lifts or it was a car that didn't belong out in the snow. Now come on! That just wouldn't fly in Camboland.
