I know, I disappeared!
First, I was getting ready for our trip to the US.
Then, we went to the US (Fabulous! Not long enough! I miss you all already! I didn't get to see half the people that I wanted to see!).
Now I'm back, and since my immediate boss at my American job and I were both on vacation, we're now scrambling to catch up on the project to get the higher-up bosses off her back (and therefore getting her off my back... hooray bureaucracy).
Pictures and stories to come... I've gotta download a new picture program (Unless someone knows a way to get me a copy of HP Photosmart Premier version 6.0... not 6.5, not 7, and not 3.5. 6.0 was the absolute best program ever and I can't figure out any of the other 5 programs that I've downloaded that made me want to throw the computer against the wall). I also have to find time to resize/edit the pics.
Monday's Labor Day in the US, and, coincidentally, Independence Day in Brazil. But Alexandre's got a 12-hour shift at the hospital (7am-7pm) and I'll be using the day to finish a very overdue translation project.
I'll get back to the blog eventually...
In the meantime, my dear friend Kristin (remember the one who came to visit? The one who watched me get attacked by a bird?) started a blog! Yay! Check it out here (or here: http://amilitarywifeinparadise.blogspot.com/).
