Five months to go


Michael and Teresa with Jasper

It’s hard to believe we’ll be leaving here in five months! We don’t have a definite departure date yet, but it’s going to be here before we know it!

We had a good, but busy, week. Last Sunday, John made a great pork dish that we served over riceĀ  – yum! We also watched a couple of movies – we especially enjoyed “The Great Buck Howard” with John Malkovich. It had an interesting magician angle that made it interesting, plus it’s just a great story.

Book club was at our house on Monday night. We had a small group, but an interesting discussion on “Three Cups of Tea.” It’s a true story of an American mountain climber who starts building schools in remote parts of Afghanistan and Pakistan. Check it out.

Tuesday was massage night – my muscles are feeling a lot better with the weekly sessions.

We had to have the radio replaced in the truck this week, so we dropped it off in El Paso on Wednesday night and picked it up Thursday night. I have to say that crossing back into Mexico at rush hour in 100+ degree heat is not my favorite thing to do! The air conditioner on the Volvo just won’t work without overheating, despite multiple mechanics looking at it. I’ll probably just live with it until we go to Israel and I tradeĀ her in.

While in El Paso, we had a great dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, Geske’s. They have great hamburgers and nice entrees. I had a well-earned martini after dealing with a particularly irritating client at work.

Friday was an admin day at work. I spent the morning at the local jail visiting seven American prisoners. In the afternoon, I got some desk work done and also did a phone interview with a new prisoner. We had a great dinner at Michael and Teresa’s and really got caught up on our gossip! And we enjoyed playing with their new pound puppy, Jasper – what a cutie!

I worked most of the day Saturday, then we went to a nice birthday party for a co-worker – we called it an early night and crashed.
