Short but Sweet

I had the best time visiting WV.  It was the recharge that I needed.  My family and friends are just amazing.  I ate good food (had spaghetti for breakfast even), received more hugs than I can count, bought the cutest clothes to bring back with me, and hung out with my nephew as much as I possibly could. I got to visit with my parents, grandparents, sister, one of my uncles, 2 cousins, the in-laws, and most of my friends. Thank you to all that made an effort to see me while I was in… it really meant alot to me.

The thing I wasn’t expecting to happen was how I felt when I came back to Korea. I missed it while I was gone. I got off the airport shuttle, was walking to my apartment and couldn’t stop smiling. Maybe it was the recharge that made me appreciate what I actually do have here. I was happy to see my park and even had a chamchi (tuna) kimbap for lunch, which I absolutely love.

Things are back to normal around here. Working and relaxing. I am soo much more calm from being here, instead of working 2 jobs, going to school, and student teaching. I forgot how to enjoy down-time.

Ode to Mexican Food

Oh how I’ll miss your cheesy goodness.  Your jalepeno green sauce always made me soo happy.  And when your taquitos crunch in my mouth, I swear, I’m in heaven.

Ahhhhh, its the little things in life that make me happy...

Ahhhhh, it's the little things in life that make me happy...

Why do friends and Mexican food work so well together?  I’m not sure, but I hope that never changes.  I had such a wonderful evening with everyone at Rio Grande.  So far, I have found nothing that compares to this cheap Mexican food.  The very few Mexican restaurants we have found over here are not only expensive, they don’t even have sour cream.  What kind of Mexican place doesn’t have sour cream?  Sour cream makes me happy.  My dad still thinks it’s hilarious to plop sour cream on my nose.  He has taught this evil little trick to Seth… so it will haunt me forever apparently.  But in Korea, I am safe… no sour cream will find it’s way to my nose.  At least there is a silver lining.

Besides friends, the only other perfect combination with Mexican food would be margaritas.   :mrgreen:

FYI…. a trip home

I am super excited because I am going to be able to visit the Wild and Wonderful West Virginia.  I need a trip home.  This will be a solo trip, Seth is taking a different week of vacation.  He’s also a different sort of person than I am.  As much as I do enjoy getting to experience this amazing country… I miss home.  Mainly I need to get a few dozen hugs and I’ll be right as rain.  Not to mention that some Mexican food sounds amazing right about now.  My trip will be extremely short lived, but worth the trip.  I fly into Huntington June 9th!  Woo Hoo, just a few weeks away.

It was a great way to end our last night in Huntington.  Even my sister came out with us.

Sunday evening… thru a semi-blizzard… Ang and Dad drove Seth and I up to Columbus.  I sit now in the airport lobby waiting for our early morning flight.  I could use a plethora of emotions to describe how I feel right now… excited, scared, nervous, joyful, determined, sad, proud… not one particular word fits right now.  It will be one day before we are in Korea and I still have no idea what to expect.  Change is always scary but I think Seth and I are in for the time of our lives.  :grin:

Think happy thoughts for us.

Just to let you know… we made it to Sanbon safely!  Our apartment is cozy and we’re unpacking stuff.  I’ll post pics soon of it all.  :razz:
