So, as you may have gathered, we are planning on heading back to the States permanently in June. Although I really enjoy my job and my friends, we miss our friends and family back home, and want to be able to do things like buy a house.
Unfortunately, I don't yet have a job in the States, so our plans at the moment are a bit loosey-goosey. We plan to move back to Alaska for the summer or until I find a job, at which point we will move to wherever the job is. If I haven't found something by the end of summer, we'll pick a place we want to live and search for jobs there.
I am considering what to do with this blog as well. I think you will not be surprised to read that I have lost enthusiasm for it. Part of it is that I don't think our daily lives are all that interesting. When I moved to Australia, that was something new and different. Now, we will be doing the same old things back in the States. Will anyone want to read about that? Will I still want to post about baking and gardening again and again? I don't know.
I hope as things start to get more settled, I'll regain enthusiasm and be able to write about my life in a way that keeps you engaged. If not, perhaps it will be back to e-mail to keep in touch.
