I am still here!

I feel like it has been about 121 years since I did my last post. My last post was in September so it definitely has been a while! I think I have had writer's block or maybe because I am not an actual writer it would be called blog post block? Whatever it may be called, I am sorry I have been neglectful to my readers. I promise to try harder from now on.

A little update on us, is, not much has been going on. Lily will be turning 6 months old next week and Christian will be turning 4 in April. I think I need to come up with a way to stop time because they are growing up way too fast for my liking.

Here's the proof that they are getting way too big.

Some good news is that we only have 8 months left in Korea! Woo hoo!! It has been a great experience here but we are getting homesick. Not even for home, more to just be in the United States. You don't realize how good you have in the States until you are living in a foreign country. Korea is nothing like Europe. It isn't romantic or even beautiful. Don't get me wrong there are some pretty parts but it is more of buildings and poverty everywhere. There is hardly any grass and trees. I miss seeing green. All you see here are the buildings and roads. Not to  mention the smell. I can not wait to breathe in clean fresh air! I can't even describe what it smells like here but I can promise you it is not pleasant. It is even worse in the humidity during the summer months. When is say humid I mean step outside for one second your hair will frizz up and you will start getting boob sweat humid. Pretty much every day during the summer there is 100% humidity. It will be 105 degrees out and add the 100% humidity on there it will feel like 120 degrees or more out. It's not fun. I never knew I could sweat so much before. I sweat in places I didn't know could sweat.

Another thing about Korea is how fast moving everything is. If you find Boston and New York fast you would never want to visit this country. This place is a 1000 times faster. Pretty much every time you drive off post you are risking your life. They do have road laws but no one follows them. They speed like mad men, cut you off and run every single freaking red light. Taking a taxi or a public bus is a suicide mission. Just don't do it. Heck, walking down the street you are risking your life! Sidewalks? They have them. But they aren't safe. be prepared to jump out of the way of scooters and even cars driving down the sidewalk. It's just better to never leave your home. You will be safe there.

I promise there are many good things about Korea. I'm just not feeling the Korea love today so I will save that for another post.
