Goodbye 2010 Hello 2011

Well here I am almost the end of January 2011 and just catching up my blog. Once again I hope to keep up better this year, we will see how that goes.

I have to say 2010 was a wonderful year! We traveled a lot and I enjoyed every minute of it. I am not sure 2011 will be as exciting travel wise but I am sure we will be going to some great places.

We ended 2010 in Aruba! What a wonderful week that was. I love anywhere the temperature is 80 degrees or above and it was there. Sun, sand and water is all I need in life. What made this trip so special is that we went as a family, the 4 of us. I keep saying that there will come a time that our sons won't be able to travel everywhere we go, so each time we do and they can I thank GOD. We started 2011 in Texas with friends and family and I have to say that was wonderful. What a great way to start the new year.

We are into our 3rd year in Cairo and while the "new" has worn off and we are settled in, it is still really cool to say I live in Egypt. Some people we know have been here for years and I am saying I won't be one of them for sure but I am enjoying this opportunity.

I have to adjust to this life and there are parts that are more difficult than others, but I would say that I continue to find the positive about all that is Egypt.

Like I said earlier I hope to be more consistent with blogging, but make no promises. I don't think I will see my sons as often as I did in 2010, but instead of being depressed about that I just look forward to when I will.
