Holidays 2006

After an extended absence from the keyboard...The trip to KC for the holidays was great. We were at a phase of life here in Espana that it was nice to be home without making us sick at the idea of coming back. I totally didn't expect the sensation that home is in Spain right now. It's comfortable and that's a very pleasant sensation that I think has taken a lot of work to get to that point.

So enjoyed getting to hang out with you bloggers and blurkers at different times. Thanks to Golden for throwing a girls night opportunity at her house. I needed that. I'm positive I talked entirely too much! Thanks for including us in the Love's Command party. It was wonderful to feel at ease and just have fun. I miss that here. Special kudos go out to Dash and Dirt for the use of their coche. My first thought was that is so nice, but I'd feel bad to use it. Then our transport option broke down and I saw it as a God thing. It took a lot of pressure off the too-ing and fro-ing that we needed to do. Thanks to Vernal, Forrest and Doc for a great night out for Mexican...even if we couldn't find anywhere open for late night stuff, that's funny knowing the way it is here. I always feel like a party pooper when I go home before midnight. LL & co, as well as our families fed us good ole KC barbeque. Makes me salivate thinking of it. yum. We missed BB and family but wish them well in their new endeavors.

In interesting news for those that don't know, my brother got engaged while we were home. Congrats to him. The newsworthy thing is that the big day is looking like the coming New Year's Eve, so we will likely be home for Christmas again. So put us on the calendar for more fun later in 2007!

    Yeah, it was a lot of fun!

    It's always weird when the place you used to think of as home is now the place you are visiting and some other place is home. I'm glad you're getting more comfortable in your place in Spain.

    Roamer - glad you and Dar got some use out of the car over the holiday. I'm sure it freaked the nosy neighbor out to see it gone after we left and return before we did!

  4. You brother is engaged? Now I've heard everything.

    You were gone?

  6. The really cool thing was that it felt normal being with you all. I credit the blogs with that and that we were good friends before we left. No awkward, uh, so, how are you moments...

  7. It seemed like you had never left. Noone missed a beat. It was great and hope to do it again in '07.
