It's Thanksgiving (well, tomorrow is Thanksgiving). And we're here in the U.S for turkey, stuffing, gravy, sweet potatoes, zofric peas, family, giving thanks...THE WORKS. Here in the U.S. for the first time since 2005. That's a long time without a home-grown American Thanksgiving with family. (Sure, we did our best every year in Shanghai to celebrate and we did good, but there's no place like home.)
I know, I know. I have been neglecting this blog. But I've also been neglecting my writing, my friends, my hair, my husband, my nails, my clothes (who cares if there's a giant black spot on my shirt over my left boob and a rancid stain on my jeans?), my accumulating stacks of paper, my workouts, and more (Did I say my hair? Definitely been neglecting my bird's nest hair.)
The only thing I haven't been neglecting? Tully. This transition has been confusing and a little tough on her, but she and I have been spending every waking (and many sleeping) moments together...and it's lovely. We love the library in our new town! We love the free snacks at Whole Foods!
So I'd keep writing, but guess what? Tully is a hollering from her room.
Happy Thanksgiving! I promise, this blog will be back up to speed soon, soon, soon!
