Hi there, c’est moi, Sara Louise! Can you believe it?
I have no idea what’s come over me, but I suddenly had the strongest urge to check in with you guys, say hi, and fill you in with a life update. Of course I’ve given you snapshots of my new ex-expat life on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, but I felt like a blog update was in order, so here goes…
I’m still in Texas, and Gregory is still in France. That’s pretty much my life in a nutshell at the moment. (Not very exciting is it?)
It’s been 82 days since we’ve seen each other (I counted yesterday), but I have faith that we’re closing in on the Green Card and the end is near (please, please, pretty please let that be true). If it happened for Betsy, it’s going to happen for me too (again; please, please, pretty please).
Other than that, life is just kind of going by with me in this weird state of limbo. To be honest, Texas doesn’t really feel like home at the moment. I didn’t anticipate being here this long, and until things are settled, I can’t move anywhere (international moving and visa fees are expensive yo). Don’t get me wrong, I like being here and catching up with my friends has been a blast, but as I did in high school, I feel like a bit of a square peg trying to be mushed into a circle. No matter how hard you mush, it’s not going to fit.
And there you have it… limbo.
Oh, and one last thing, Fifty says, hi! He’s loving life here having a fenced in garden, squirrels to chase and his grandma to play hide & seek with. Life is good for our furry little friend, in part due to the bits of chicken and bacon my mother sets aside for him… three words; diet dog food.
Ciao, ciao for now my dear friends. I hope all of you are happy and healthy and enjoying life. You never know, I just might pop in again!
