Sorry for the lack of updates these past few weeks. What with getting back to the US and the 4th of July, things have been a little crazy.
I got home June 22nd and almost my entire family was there to meet me at the airport. I really didn't want anyone to be there as I didn't want a big scene, but it was actually very nice. After so much time not seeing anyone, they were standing in a crowd at the Arrivals gate and my sister even made a "Welcome Home" sign (written in Hungarian - sweet!). That must be what heaven is like - everyone you love who has gone before you there, cheering, and excited to welcome you home.
Unfortunately, I was so tired from the 20 hours of travel that I wasn't very spirited company. Sorry, guys, but that unexpected delay in Chicago (when I was SO close, really sapped my remaining strength).
The 4th of July was great. All I wanted was the same family tradition of Gresham parade & fireworks and I got exactly that. I don't know why, but the Christmas and 4th of July holidays with my family are my 2 favorite. Ethan sat on my lap during the entire parade and we've been bonding ever since as I go to Emily's house once a week to babysit.
No job interviews yet, well one, but I don't count it because they wanted me to sell insurance which is just not my forte. In fact, selling anything can be a chore unless I really like what I'm selling.
It's hard to believe it's only the beginning of July...it feels like it should be the end, as I'm busy with so many things yet not busy at all. Strange.
Anywho. That's about all that's happening. Next week I will officially start the job search and I'm touring the churches that supported me in Hungary. I'm quite excited to tell everyone about it and share my memories with them.
Ciao for now.
