Easter is almost here.

Last time I posted anything it was September and my kids were not long back in school, I had been to Las Vegas for my birthday, and my tv show had been on television.

So it has been almost 7 months since I posted anything, and you may be wondering what has been going on in our lives. Something must have happened. Surely, our lives cannot be that boring. Something must have happened.


We celebrated our 7th Ameriversary. I have now been living in the US for 7 years. 7! In 2 and a half years I will be able to apply for US citizenship and I may or may not (I totally do) have a countdown on my phone telling me exactly how long I have to wait until I can file the N400 form with USCIS.

We went to the Florida Keys for Thanksgiving and our 15th wedding anniversary. We left one place with sunshine, beaches, and palm trees and headed to another place with sunshine, beaches, and palm trees.

The husband went back to the UK to surprise his mum for her birthday. She had no idea he was going to be there and she was speechless. I think it may be the first time I actually saw her speechless. (I watched a video of it. The kids and I did not go) He used all of the frequent flyer miles I had with Virgin Atlantic and got a really good deal on a ticket. He stayed for 3 weeks and had to work while he was there. You can imagine how much fun it is trying to co-ordinate meetings with people on east coast time when you are physically in the UK.

Then obviously there was Christmas, New Year, Valentines Day and St Patricks Day.

The husband did the polar plunge at Sullivans Island on New Years Day.

I am still looking for a job. The kids are still doing well at middle school. It is a bit unnerving that Z will only have 1 more year of middle school left once this school year is done. I am going to be all "la la la I can't hear you" to anyone who says he will be at high school soon.

And on that note, I shall leave you. Just wanted to let you know that I am still alive, still in South Carolina, and still the queen of procrastination.

Happy Easter everyone. (We all know the next post will be after Easter. That is April 16th in case you didn't know)

14 year olds & Green Cards

Did you know that you need to get a new green card when you turn 14? Do you know the reason why? No really, I'd like to know why. ...
