In Transition

Glancing at the calendar this morning, I realized it’s been almost three months since leaving the Netherlands. Twelve weeks from when I strapped myself into my assigned airline seat, Daughter to my right, our pets Oli and Ava beneath us in the...

Well, well, well. Look what the cat dragged in. Yours truly, sheepishly shrugging while simultaneously cringing at how pathetic this looks. When last I posted several weeks ages ago, I dropped the bombshell we were moving back to the US this summer.

Sandwich Generation: Feeling Torn in Two

I’ve spoken to many parents on the Parent Support Line who are feeling literally torn apart.  On one hand, they have a parent who is critically ill or needs long term care.  They might be living with them, or be in assisted living in a retirement...

Tipping Post

I’ve often wondered what I would say in a post like this. I’ve played it out in my mind before, I just never thought I’d be writing this now. You see, it’s time for that kind of post. Not the kind where you tell everyone you&...

The Short and Long of It

Lately something’s been stuck in my head, like a snippet of a song’s refrain playing over and over again. It’s as if I have my own chorus – although it’s actually more like a soloist, with a deep, resonant voice –...

Riveting Expat Reads: Expat Life, Slice by Slice

Invisible Ink

It’s been almost three weeks to the day since my last post. Believe me, I know. It’s been weighing on my mind. Not in an ‘oh cr@p, I have to post something on that d@mn blog’ sort of way, because this blog has never been like...

Down the Rabbit Hole
