Car Car SAD; Taiwan Smell BAD
I'm alone in Taiwan with two kids and a 21-week-old fetus in my belly. How did this happen? Mike is gone for a few days for a job interview. It's an exciting job interview, which could result in some great things, so of course I don't begrudge this trip. But I DO begrudge the fact that he is in Utah right now, seeing the snow. Seeing my Momma. Eating food that I dream about every day. Not having to listen to Hazel scream 12 hours (or more) a day. Having access to a car that can take him anywhere he needs to go. And knowing that he cares less about such things as, say, Chick Fila and loading up the tunk of the car with groceries, does not really make me feel any better. In fact, it makes things worse. He's not even going to enjoy his trip half as much as I would. Although, I would probably be more freaked out by the interview than he is, so maybe it's a toss up. Anyway, pity me. Feel really bad for me. I am alone in a foreign land with two demanding, and suddenly really really loud, children.
