Hullo, Zam.

I am still alive, believe it or not. My husband and I moved from the little big city to the jungle, and we had to wait two whole weeks for the internet to get hooked up. It was hell, I tell you.

One of the things we said good-bye to when we moved from city to jungle was county water. We now have what's called a water catchment system. Basically, when it rains, the water runs from our gutters into what looks like a big, tarp covered, above-ground pool to the side of our house. From there, it flows through a water pump, through a filter that gets out the sediment and other large things, and into our pipes. If you think that sounds scary and undrinkable, you're right! We are living off of bottled water, for fear of getting rat lungworm disease.

We moved away from our apartment for two reasons: 1) it is a studio apartment, and while I adore my husband, we need more than one little room to ramble around in and 2) they wouldn't let us have Akira there. We picked this... lovely... home in the jungle because it fit our budget.

However, on the second day of our move, I received a phone call from one of the places I had sent my resume. She wanted an interview and wondered how quickly I could show up. A week and a half and a second interview later, I was offered the job. I still haven't started yet, because the office is a part of the hospital here and so I have to get a round of vaccinations, they have to check me for fun diseases like Hepatitis B and TB, and they have to do a drug and background check. Since the hospital is a government owned hospital, all of this takes a little longer than it should. But I'm pleased to announce that I no longer file other people's taxes for less than minimum wage two days a week.

Of course, since I was offered and accepted this job, I received no less than four calls and/or emails regarding other resumes I sent out. Ah, well. What can you do.

Hopefully either mid-April or early May, I will send my husband back to Tennessee to visit friends and bring my puppy home to me. This has been quite an ordeal. While her quarantine period is over, she still needs to have a topical flea/tick medicine applied, and I have to get a health statement along with two rabies certificates sent to me from the vet in Tennessee, which have to be sent along with the application that I have to fill out and get notarized to the Dept. of Agriculture in Honolulu no less than ten days before she arrives along with a fee of $163 just to get her in the state. I don't even want to think about how much it's going to cost just to fly her out here... I'll just be grateful that I have a full-time semi-well paying job now and let it go at that.

Another fun thing that happened in the two weeks that we had no internet and were learning to take care of a water catchment system is that we sold our house in Tennessee. (Smiley: yippee) No more house payment AND rent payment for us. Which makes us happy.

It's amazing how much fat you can trim from your life by making a move like this. I look around our small, one room house at the furniture here, and realize that we own less than half of it. My husband's salary has doubled, mine has shrunk to a third of it's former size, and our bills are smaller, but all in all, it's pretty exciting. It's nice to be able to go to a beach and pet a sea turtle on his head as part of our normal activities. I wouldn't say that I'm in love with Hawaii and I want to live here for the rest of my life, but I do think I've made an improvement to my life moving out here. If nothing else, I can say that I did it. I miss my mom, but that's part of growing up, I suppose. And with Skype and phone calls, it's not as bad as it could be.

So, that happened. What've you guys been up to?

But seriously, it sounds like things are generally looking pretty good, so I'm glad to hear it.

You're braver than me. I know they have bigger bugs in Hawaii than they do here in TN. And the ones here creep me out more than enough, so I don't know if I could live where you are now, haha.

It's funny you say that. Sunday, we were at the beach frolicking with sea turtles, and we could see the snow atop Mauna Kea. If you really just need a taste of winter, it's not that far. Smiley: lol

As for the bugs, I have not seen any bugs that are any different than TN. The centipedes, I am told, like to live under the large banana leaves that fall to the ground, so I am content to steer clear of those. Our first apartment had a small roach problem, but my husband was able to clear that up with some combat. And when I say "small roach," I mean we didn't get any of the B52's there. Yes, they call those huge flying roaches B52's. And there is even a children's book dedicated to one of the creatures, and they have no fear of man and will dive bomb you at a moments notice. I know all of this in theory only, as I have not seen any of them.

Part of the reason my Hawaiian adventures have thus far been ugly bug free might be in due in part to this being "winter" and maybe they're playing least-in-sight right now. But I won't think about that.

What I have seen a lot of are geckos. They are all over the outside of our house, mostly sticking close to the windows at night to snatch up some unsuspecting moths that have fluttered too close to their hungry mouths. We've even seen a few inside. I have always loved lizards, and the geckos have quickly found a place in my heart. Even so, I was still amazed when my only problem with seeing any of the geckos inside the house was that I didn't want them to die from lack of food. The few times I've seen one in the house, two thoughts run through my head. The first is that I've been told that geckos are good luck. The second is that if any bugs are in the house, the geckos will eat them.

Fun story. When I was still considered additional baggage for my father, we moved to Hawaii. I'm sitting on the couch playing Super Nintendo, and suddenly my little sister runs out of the bathroom half naked screaming her head off and straight out the door. Turns out she was about to take a shower when she pulled the curtain open and there was one of those fist sized volatilis periplaneta americana who decided that was the moment to become a hunter and chased her out.

Me? I peed myself laughing.

Flat!? Don't you see those hills in the background!? Also trees, totally not flat.








But in all seriousness, that's a lake so it's bound to be flat, even by the skewed standards of my country. (I cycled down a street that had the name .... mountain, I doubt it was more than 20 meters high).

I'm betting the quality of living is wonderful (nature, peace, waves, flowers etc)

My hubby has transitioned from going "bang bang" for the government (contracting) to oil & gas. The work is reliable (unlike contracts), pay equals out and there are wonderful benefits. Contracting tends to pay you in 1099's, there are no benefits and you're on your own with taxes (I've learned so much about filing taxes that I'm on friendly terms with the IRS; I think they are extremely nice... O.o)

I'm in grad school for a Masters program in counseling. We are moving due to his (hubbys) job so I have had to reapply at a different school that is more research oriented than clinical. My current grad program is taught by clinicians. They require their professors to have worked in the industry for a minimum of 10 years. It's ok though because my family will finally be geographically complete. =)

Kiddos are getting big and are truly wonderful little people. I'm impressed by how caring they are and how polite. They are currently in a Jewish preschool but when we move they will be going to an Abeka Christian Preschool (if I don't end up homeschooling them. I'm more concerned about their moral and ethical development. How they treat people and interact with their environment is important to me.) Suki has discovered a love for the piano and Tyler likes to cook.

Kind of sounds like me the first time I saw one.

I was sitting in a chair, watching TV. I lived in a really old house at the time and there was no weatherstripping under the front door. So this ROACH just walked in under the front door. He was 4 feet tall, I swear, and carrying luggage because he meant to stay for a while. I'm sure my neighbors heard me scream as I jumped up on the chair, launched myself across the room and out the door. Later I was able to throw a pretty heavy shoe at it and smoosh it (not a good sound, btw.) Then a few nights later, I was sleeping and felt something on my hand. I woke up, and one of those things was just hanging out in the palm of my hand. It didn't last long since as soon as I realized what it was, I slung it into the wall. It left a stain.

Now I need a drink.

So glad things are working out so great (with interesting learning parts) for you Belkie. My mother relies on tank water, which is also collected off her roof. As a final stage she has a cheap but effective water filter attached to her kitchen tap. You flick it on when you want drinking water, and flick it off for other tasks. I really love the sound of your island adventure in life, especially the beach, turtles and house geckos, and envy you greatly ^-^. I'm sure if the house geckos aren't getting enough food they'll move back outside for a while.

Things sound great for you too Niobia. I remember when Suki was born. They grow up so fast, into such amazing people, don't they? Don't worry about liking The IRS, according to the New Testament, Jesus hung with tax-collectors too!

We have one of those, but still don't trust the water. Unless you have a UV filter, there are a lot of water born issues that you can run into. I'm sure your mother has a UV filter, though. We aren't willing to pay for and install something like that since we don't own the home, and I'm not into improving someone else's real estate, especially when I plan to be moving out of here as soon as possible.

Kinda cold and rocky. No snow though as it was high summer and we were just below the everlasting snow.
It also didn't feel that special since the whole of Tibet is above 4000 meters. We were also just passing it so it's not like I've spent much time there. (Plus, just a road, no climbing or anything)

Nepal, as far as I've seen it, is gorgeous. Tibet is a strange world with very few trees or plants higher than grass and lots and lots and lots of rocks. Also rocks. And rocks. And did I mention rocks?

Edit: If you happen to get to Kathmandu, go to the monkey temple. It's awesome. Also any other Buddhist temple you can visit.

Dear Belkira, 
               Be sure to get some good wet weather gear. I would suggest a good, strong umbrella and  
a parka at the least. It will rain, and it will rain a lot for a good month straight and you will  
hate life without it. You will also wish to build an ark. Resist this urge. People will look at you  
funny when you go to the zoo and demand two of every animal. 
                                              Sincerely,

Oh wow I have been so out of the loop around here. I had no idea you moved away. Glad to hear things are going well for you.

I'm currently in Japan right now. I'm out of the Navy now and am doing disaster relief work in the Tohoku area. I'm now making plans to study in Tokyo.

:D

Taking advantage of all the displaced Japanese girls. No surprise there.

No, seriously, tell us how Japan is doing one year later.

Soggy, how do you fund doing relief work? I'd love to do that next year, but most of our projects are really costly to participate in and it might just be cheaper to go to Canada or something.

We don't really need relief work, but thanks for thinking of us.

Elaborate more! If things work out the way I want them to then after another year of school I'm going to try to get into the JET program or another English teaching program in japan. I'd end up spending a year in japan if I got in.

Quebec is both natural and a disaster.

Quebec is a sovereign nation, I don't need to include them.

Wow, sounds like a **** of a step! Hawaii does sound awesome. I've been hearing a lot about it of recent.

I'm sort of glad to be in Canada and avoid the large number of odd insects. The only huge ugly pests we have here are policitians and Leaf fans. They're working on repellant for both, and while I'm sure Raid for Leaf Fans might work out, you can never completely get rid of politicians.

Hope you enjoy it there. As for me, wife's decided to leave the marriage. Aside from that, nothing major in the way of news.
