Tomorrow is another day. . . nah.

This week was a doozy. Husband was delayed two days from returning from his TDY in the tropics because of the awful snowy weather. It is still freezing and snow is everywhere and I am so over winter. Thankfully, I am going to Africa tomorrow where I will not have any winter in sight. Nope. None. They don't have snow in Africa except up in the mountains, and I will not be in the mountains. I will be here.

Not a mountain in sight. And as a bonus it is the rainy season, so I'll go from 12 degrees F to 98 with 99% humidity in one day!

But more importantly, this week was career week at the Middle School which if you read my blog from last year you will remember I won. I know, it's not supposed to be a competition but it so is and I won again! Only this time not with students because the World Wildlife Fund lady brought stuffed snow leopards and there is nothing in the Department that can compete with that. But I brought props and showed people things they never knew which were super cool and the teachers and even other Department employees kept asking if they could have a turn. I may even have recruited a couple of teachers to take the Foreign Service exam. Totally not the point of Middle School Career Day, but I won!

OK, so now I have to get back to working on my EER which is what I'm supposed to be doing instead of blogging. But before I go back to finding things to brag about myself, you know what is better than a brownie? Missing Daylight Savings time.

You see, because I'll be traveling on Sunday, I get to skip the whole clock forward thing. Sorry children! You still have to get up an hour earlier. Good luck, Husband. You're on your own for this one. Hahahahahahaha! Sorry, I mean, let me know if I can help in any way. Which I can't. Because I'll be in Africa! Hahahahahaha! Sorry. Really. But it is very nice to just let you handle this one on your own.


  1. Bring some snow leopards home with you for the ultimate win.
