Apparently I'm going to have alot of time on my hands, at least until the little bambino comes. Of course I can volunteer through the Red Cross (and they are very excited about having me!), but that doesn't start until mid March and after I finish the all orientation steps.

I didn't get the health promotion officer job here on base. The boss was gracious enough to call me and explain why I didn't get it. Someone else interviewed that was PERFECT for the spot and they couldn't pass that up. It makes sense and I'm happy that things worked out for that position. Still a little sad that I didn't get the spot though.

I always dreamed of being a stay-at-home mom, but I didn't know how hard it would be. At least being a stay-at-home wife at this point, and in a foreign country. I feel like a prisoner. Of course it's not really the case as hubby says I can go home to the states anytime I want, but it just wouldn't be the same. Not without him and our own place at least.

Friends say this is all called culture shock. I hope this horrible-ness doesn't last too long!

  1. Now you are beginning to see why Skip and I think you should come back to the states when Chad gets deployed. It will be a lot easier here than there. We may not speak good English, but we do speak it. You'll have us and your family to help you when you need it. You can always go back to Italy when he returns.
