This update is in honor of my beloved friend Marianne who just reminded me that it's been way too long since I've posted anything. But part of that is because I had problems getting into my account. What can I say? I have been thoroughly enjoying living in Ohio, despite the lack of sunshine (it only shines like 1/3 of the year) and wretched cold (-20 with the wind chill occasionally). The whole time I was in Albania, I thoroughly missed the snow. After all, I'd rather have the beauty of snow over the gloominess of daily rain that goes on for days at a time. However, it's no fun when I'm running late for work and realized it snowed and now have to clean off my car! :) But I do really enjoy central heat and having it a comfortable 68 degrees in my house! And I enjoy the bathroom not being freezing cold when I have to go into shower. Ahhh...America!
