I've sort of been phoning in my posts here these last few weeks- I generally do that when I'm at home, but, having made a respectable dent in this voyage, I guess I've been preoccupied. I've been struggling to make arrangements for things at home, and feeling keenly the impact of 'not being there' for basic but important issues; I know I'm being vague here.
Tomorrow is Valentine's day, the Day of Atonement for the American male. I made my arrangements there- V-day is not a particularly difficult holiday to miss, in my opinion. In fact, this is one holiday that I'm happy to phone in. I've been able to do a good job at doing my part with Inappropriately Hot Foreign Wife. Valentines' Day isn't stressful there, for the most part.
