It’s been a while. I’m actually not even sure where to start. A few big things you may have missed:
-Way back in October, while we were still in Abu Dhabi, we bought a house in the US.
-We’re back in NC and we’re loving it.
-Eric is now working twice the hours for half the pay.
-I have a job! I haven’t worked since 2007, so I’m pretty excited about that.
-Alana is no longer homeschooled. We’re about three months away from her next MRI/MRA and I am waiting on pins and needles for it.
-Cameron turned 6 and he amazes me everyday with his reading and writing.
Something you may have noticed – I’m now calling this little corner of the Internet by-kat.com. *TWO!* years ago when I started this blog it was mainly to share my travels. I originally called it “An American Kat in Jeddah”, what I thought was a funny play on “An American Werewolf in Paris”, but I don’t think anyone caught on. Before long I shortened that up to “American Kat”…short, sweet, to the point. Now that I’m an American living in America I don’t really think the whole “American” thing is necessary. So, here we are, on a blog about nothing, with no updates in months. I have hopes of sharing my creative pursuits more now, but who knows.
Anyway – I just wanted to pop in to say “Hi, I’m still alive!”. Keep an eye out for a bit of a new look around here and hopefully new posts.
