Hello Again

Recently my mom reconnected with her best friend from childhood. After not talking or seeing each other for nearly 40 years they rekindled their friendship first through Facebook and phone calls. Last month my mom traveled to Florida to see her friend for a week and evidently they picked things up right where they left off. Such a feel good story, isn't it?

I know it hasn't been decades, but it has been over 2 months since The MacLeod Thaimes had a new posting. It's been like a friend I've wanted to connect with, but since I don't know exactly what to say I've made excuses not to call or in this case write. Maybe for you reading this isn't awkward, but for me it is awkward because I feel like I've been ignoring someone or something for awhile. What I'm trying to say is, "Hello Again."

Now onto those excuses...  a lot has happened since the last post. I hope that over the course of the next few weeks we can get you updated on my last trip to the beach for my birthday, Greg traveling back Thailand, getting our things packed up in Bangkok, traveling for 10 days through Cambodia and Vietnam, celebrating New Years with good friends from the US in Pattaya, saying goodbye to friends made in Thailand,  moving back to the USA, closing on our first house, settling into our new house, experiencing winter again, job hunting, church hunting, buying a car, and all of the trials and triumphs that go with these experiences. 

Another excuse, The MacLeod Thaimes. Our Adventures of Living in Thailand is the name of our blog. It makes me sad because we don't live in Thailand anymore. While Greg and I have both done well with the move back to the US, we miss Thailand and our lives there. We miss it a lot. I'm thinking The MacLeod Thaimes title will stay, but we will get a new subtitle soon and someday new pictures, maps, etc. Right now I'm taking baby steps. 

Enough with the excuses. I think a good place to start is our new house. Yes, we have a house. Here's a picture. If you want the address, shoot me an email as I don't feel like posting that online. We love it. You should come visit. The calendar link to the right is up to date, let's figure something out!

We don't have this much snow anymore, but it's a good picture of where we live.
More to come soon.

I hope you feel the same way, but it's good to be back.
