Look Who Turned A Year Older?

Yeah! Yeah! I have turned a year older this week, but still feeling young and active . Let's see....so much has happened this past year..First, I got married on June 14, which happened earlier than anticipated. Second, I resigned from a job after 10 years of laughter, sadness, travels, tons of papers, and sleepless nights. And third, we departed for England on Sept. 8 to stay for a three-year tour. And this my friends and families are major, I mean major changes in my 48 years of living. Ha! Ha! Ha! Now, you know how old I am!
After ten years of having authority to make decisions in the previous job, it is not easy to start a new one and in a challenging environment. Dealing with middle and high school kids does not come easy either. Kids will try you to see if they can get away with murder. Same way with the adults but in a different circumstances. I just recently accepted a part time position with RAF Alconbury High School as an Educational Training Technician. I am meeting new acquaintances and learning new responsibilities but less demanding. Of course, we all know that this is just a temporary until we leave the area. What is next? Time will tell! The good part about it is, I am now in the government system. Hopefully, it will be easier for me to get a federal job in the future.

It has been over five months, since we arrived here in England and we only have 31 months left..yeah! Counting down....:)We've gone to Malta over the holidays and visited small towns in the area. So far, the top two local places that I like are London and Melton Keynes. Melton Keynes reminds me of Washington DC and London reminds me of New York City. Surprisingly, the first visitor we have from America is Danielle. She was here on a business trip and we had dinner in Melton Keynes. It was really nice seeing you in England, Danielle!. and Ashley is expecting AUSTIN!!! to visit here next month. How nice! She is truly a best friend.
The weather has been really weird. It has been snowing a lot and we were out of work for a few days and could not go anywhere on my birthday due to snow. So to keep ourselves entertained, Rodney and I built a snow woman...he!he!he! And Rodney's friends were freezing!

And this is the story of our life this year.
