Do I have a lazy eye?
Well, things are rolling along and I'm counting down to when we leave this frozen Virginia tundra (the wind is howling outside as I write this) for the MUCH warmer climes of Buenos Aires (highs in the high 90s). Although I love and will miss VA, I'm ready to get my tan on!
I had my Spanish proficiency exam today, which I passed! So that's exciting news, if only for the fact that I am for sure leaving on Jan. 28 and not staying for remedial Spanish training, haha.
This wasn't the most comforting message to greet me at the entrance to the Urgent Care center I went to last week. After having endured two days of excruciating pain and general malaise, I wasn't very surprised to learn I had strep throat.
I've been corresponding with the folks at post, and I found out some details about my apartment. It's in the Belgrano neighborhood for those of you in the know, which is in the city, near the Embassy. And peep this: It's 3 bedrooms 2.5 baths, PLUS a maid's room and bathroom. I don't know what I'm going to do with all that space after living in a studio apt. for the past year! I am happy that Neil will be able to have an "office," as he is going to be studying and working on his degree online. Also, since he will in effect be the maid, he will have his own quarters if he so chooses :) I will definitely post pics of the place once we get there. And we obviously have PLENTY of space for visitors, so COME ON DOWN!
Our shoes by the door. The other day I noticed how cute our shoes look, all the same size hehe. Can you tell whose are whose? Hint: 3 are his, 3 are mine.
I keep hearing the most A-MA-ZING things about Buenos Aires, so I just can't wait to get there.
it is sad to think of all the friends and family that we are leaving here in the States. For all the excitement ahead of us, there are many exciting milestones, celebrations, gatherings, ups and downs of life, etc. that we won't be able to fully participate in because of our physical distance.
This makes me sad, but grateful for these relationships and the support system that I have here at home. I'm glad that I have people I will miss and who will miss me. I am so lucky for all the people I know and love.
These pics are displayed as a tryptic on many a wall in State Dept. buildings. What are they going to do with them come next week??
