It's about time.....

I am sure that is what you are saying right about now.  It has been months since either of us posted a good blog.   I just posted Day 4 of our China Trip, hopefully this will inspire us to get Days 2 and 3 written as well.  In the meantime, we have just about 3 1/2 months before we touch down on US soil again.  Our contracts end Feb 21.  In between now and then we are planning a makeshift Thanksgiving dinner.  Since we have no oven, we might have to resort to turkey lunch meat sandwiches, but mashed potatoes, gravy, store bought rolls and sweet potatoes will all be present.  We inherited a small Christmas tree from a teacher that is leaving, so that will be a nice adornment in one of our apartments. In January we have a 4 day weekend, which we will spend in Japan. And then when our contracts are up on the 21st of February we are planning to delay our flights out of Korea for about 10 days so we can hit Vietnam and/or Cambodia and/or Thailand before come home.  

With some of our fellow teachers leaving in the coming week the reality of how much we miss our family and friends has made itself more evident.  There are alot of things we don't miss back home(paying for gas, driving to the store instead of walking around the corner, greasy food) but family and friends can not be substituted for.  We really look forward to seeing everyone and catching up when we get back.  In the meantime, there is a number that you can call me(Sam) at.  It is not long distance, it will call my computer, and if I am not online, you can leave a message. The number is 469-277-6758.  More info later on Alison's number.
