I think we should introduce a weekly topic. Since I like lists and it happens to be Thursday, I now pronounce it the List Day! Here it goes:
1. Lack of gnats (can I get an amen?)
2. A foreign language (our recent trip to London was fantastic, but a tad disappointing due to lack of “foreignness”)
4. Fresh dates (I hear they are really good)
5. New things to photograph.
6. A (possibly) temporary lack of a full-time job. Sleep, time for crafts and other projects would be nice.
7. Not being the only Russian in the 50-mile radius.
8. Access to the beach or a swimming pool (keeping my fingers crossed).
9. Trying new food and learning to cook it.
10. Not going through acculturation alone this time. Shon will be in the same boat!
