This blog I started is my first time ever blogging.
I'm not sure what I was hoping to accomplish but I am enjoying it. The strange thing is that this isn't for my family and friends. In fact, they don't know anything about this. If I do let them know about it I will have to edit out some stuff. For instance, I can't write about how lousy it felt when my Dad told me I could go move away but to leave my kids here. That's nice, very supportive.
It's been fun making new connections. Foreign Service people connections. People who know what I'm talking about. It's nice not having to explain too much. You get it. Even if you don't know me. And that's kind of nice.
