I've been Sparking for 800 days. In that time, I've completed a 5K and two half marathons. I've lived in four countries, moving three times. I've made wonderful friends, and have even met a few of them in real life. I started Hogwarts, one o... Read more
Wow. It's been three weeks since MacDuff and I arrived in Beirut. The time is flying by! I arrived and sort of jumped right into the work, but MacDuff and I are trying to fin... Read more
Greetings from Beirut!
I have to dash this off, so fasten your seat belts - the transfer was a rough ride.
When I last blogged, the company had lost my medical receipts and expenditures. Both were found and credited! Yay!
