Eric’s off in Daegu, so it’s just Lex and me for the next two weeks. It sucks, but oh well - guess that’s the army. (He does get to come home briefly this weekend - thank the Lord). Lexi started daycare today - that was rough. I had to leave her carseat outside of the CDC building all day long; wish I would’ve gotten the memo that they didn’t allow carseats in the freakin building! I get there to pick her up, and they’ve lost one of her bottles. Guess I can’t complain too much though - after all, they did take really good care of her. They documented her every move, from when she napped to when she poopied. Oh, btw totally wish I could drive here. It takes me forever and costs an arm and a leg to go anywhere in this country! I really wish the stinkin army would let me get a Korean drivers license - ppooohhiieee!!!!
I really suck at updating my blog. I need to work on it. Lately, I’ve been super busy. I started teaching at a Hagwan (a Korean private academy). The kids there are absolutely adorable! They make it worthwhile. Last week, I flew to another part of Korea (Gwang-Ju). It was nice, but not like Seoul. I love the city life; in fact, I’m thinking I prefer it.
Let me begin by saying I never intended upon coming here, nor did I want to at first - but this has been one of the best experiences of my life! My husband came down on orders right after we found out we were expecting, and had to leave right after our little nugget was born. I arrived in Korea on a frigid January night. Let me just say, it is very unlike what I was used to. In Alabama, the low never goes below 20 degrees. Here, we get excited when it hits the freezing mark - which has been a rarity lately. I created this blog to share my adventures on the other side of the world. While here I want to experience their culture and traditions, visit their landmarks, and have bajungols of fun! So here goes nothing…..
