Welcome to my blog. I write about fitting in, sticking out, and missing the motherland as a serial foreigner.

True love

I thought you'd enjoy this picture. True love is Jeremy letting me read The Hunger Games first so I could move on to Catching Fire, and then Mockingjay. It was so much fun reading in bed together until the wee hours of the night, and then each trying to convince the other to get up with the kids in the morning. I also enjoyed talking over key plot points, telling each other our freaky Hunger Games-inspired dreams, and me peeking over to see what part of each book he was at and then trying to refrain from giving any reaction that would spoil the plot.

We're driving to Oregon today. Miriam is excited to see if the Blue Mountains really are blue. Wish us luck.

Idaho to Oregon

I wonder if 'mortified' is a better word than 'embarrassed' in this situation.
