in limbo

so. guess who is home? this lady.

let's get straight down to business:

guess what no one tells you?! well the list could go on so we'll start at #1.

Here's the scoop. everyone is so busy telling you how hard culture shock is into a 3rd world country that they COMPLETELY forget to tell you that it is 1 BILLION (x10) times harder to adjust back to America.

and i'm a little mad (okay not really. for dramatic effect.) no one could at least give this little girl a heads up that driving is way scarier than before, the dentist is still as horrible as you thought, and being social is way too tiring??? c'mon guys. i expected more from you. just kidding, I just love your little faces.

your devious little faces....

on another note, new technology is so scary and exhilarating all at once that i can barely stand it! I bought a mac today and was given a hand-me-down (or hand-BY-down?! WHICH ONE IS IT?!) "smart" phone when I got back. it's all a little bit insane. AND is it just me or does everyone speak in what i like to call instagram language?! at least Facebook is the same.....OH WAIT everyone can now see a timeline of my life. but why am i complaining? i still go on just like everybody else. haha.

anyways, i'm very ready to stop rambling (as I am sure you are too) so this is farewell for now.

send your prayers that i can backpack out of limbo-land without completely losing my mind.

love to you all. really. i'm just FULL of love today! ...thanks to my consistent weekly watching of We Bought A Zoo.



ps, indonesia pictures coming soon. they are beautiful (thanks to beautiful children). you'll fall in love just as i did.

Thanks for the update Kate. We miss you here in Nepal and think of you so often. Thanks for the 'heads up' on culture shock coming home. I know it will happen. . .+uspeti geenspon

You guys will love being home, but miss Nepal so much as I'm sure it has become a home to you. When will you both be coming back to the USA? We have to get together!

We leave Nepal on June 14 and arrive SLC on the 15th. We would love to see you. Hope we can hook-up...
What are your plans?
