The only free time I have is when I am sick

Hello to anyone reading this out there! Mayhaps I have lost everyone since I rarely have the chance to update this thing anymore.

And why do I have the time today? Because I am home sick with some viral infection...lovely. These kiddos are going to do me in. I finally broke down and went to see a doctor yesterday. The only good English-speaking doctor who was recommended turned out to be a pediatrician (connection with the international school), but she doesn't mind seeing younger, healthy adults. If I were 87, it would be a different story. So now I am all drugged up and hoping to go back to school tomorrow.

At least I have company...that makes things so much better.

Let's see...what has happened recently??

Our trip back to Japan was awesome as expected. The wedding was beautiful and it was wonderful to see family and friends.

Last week Thursday and Friday were some professional development days for the school staff in Tirana, Albania. It was great to do some traveling in the Balkans and meet new, very entertaining people. We visited the QSI school in Tirana and stayed with their staff members. The bus ride was epic. About 14 of us in a small bus, bouncing along the pothole-filled roads in Northern Albania for 4 hours, getting pulled over by the police who were just in a bad mood (driver paid only 5 euros to keep us going on down the road!).

Oh, and I turned the big 3-0.

I think my meds are kicking in and I feel a nap coming on..........zzzzzzzzz.
