March Update

What have you missed?
I'm all healed up and back into the swing of things. The weather has heated up some. A nice 98 degrees today and tomorrow and the next day. You get the picture.
Speaking of is Nadia and me at Siam Ocean World. Its claim to fame is that it's the largest aquarium in southeast Asia.

We had a good time and Nadia's English is improving. She is forming full sentences. All afternoon it was, "Look at this fish", and "what's this?"
Which brings me to a point; ain't it just fascinating to watch a kid discover something for the first time? To see the lightbulb of recognition?

She has quickly found a place in my heart, adorable little girl that she is. I do miss me some Gracie, though. (my niece back in the States). Because of the time/day difference, I can't talk to her as much as I'd like.

I went to Immigration today to extend my passport stamp. I must say that my employers really do right by me. They took such wonderful care of me when I was sick. And when I've had to do things like go to immigration, they send an employee from their offices to help facilitate the whole process.
Frankly, I feel spoiled. And I am NOT complaining about it. Especially the part where there is a driver and I don't have to drive in Bangkok. 'Cause, Wow, yeah, traffic here is Not at all like home. I have found myself getting used to riding on the left side of the road.

I won an iPod Touch and now am completely addicted to the tiny little time-sucking gadget. Even now, I'm posting this by way of the blogger app I just downloaded for free in the iTunes store.
I really like Apple.
And thanks to the fine people that create and manufacture apple products I'll be posting a lot more pictures.


  1. Rebecca here. So glad to hear that you are doing better and that your employers are taking such good care of you. Being somewhere so different is hard enough. I'm happy they help you out. Nadia is too cute. I bet she has you wrapped around her finger. :) Really good picture of you too!

  2. I am catching up on all your posts. Sorry I have been so remiss. Miss chatting with you.
