Hey! Thanks for the note! I haven't been on here as much either (other than a bit on the cooking board).
Thanks for asking ... dh and I are doing pretty well. He was lucky to snag a job before the economy went downhill. He's an instructor for Autistic kids (jr. high age). He's enjoying it, but of course it's challenging sometimes. In fact, in some ways he says it's not far off from teaching Japanese kids, as far as there being some kind of communication/social barrier.
I guess you could say dh transitioned a little better than myself. I haven't had much luck finding a job, but I also don't really know what I want to do so that doesn't help. I'm just trying to be patient and waiting to figure out what direction I want to take. It's funny how we tend to idealize the past and we miss what we don't have anymore ... in my case Japan.
Anyway, sorry for the serious response, LOL! How are you doing, other than work keeping you busy?
