Namaste SITStas!


Aw man - y'all are coming over and the place is a wreck - but oh well. In the name of hospitality please come in and visit with your morning coffee, or Diet Coke or whatever you do in the am! I am REALLY excited about having visitors. It gets a little lonely over here. After reading many of your blogs the past few months, I am blown away by the talent and creativity out there! And you have made me laugh, laugh, laugh. Thank you.

Welcome to our nutty life. My husband works for Uncle Sam as a diplomat and the term of art for the spouse who is not also employed by the USG is a "trailing spouse" - hence the blog name. I could have called it "A Broad Abroad" - but my sweet Mom wouldn't have approved.

Thanks for stopping by and "Namaste"!

Congratulations on being featured on SITS. I'm excited to just meet someone living in Nepal. I've heard its a beautiful country, so I will be coming back often to read of your journey. I loved the picture and story of Aunt Libbie. I would love to hear about all she has seen in her 100 years. I'm guessing Namaste is a welcome?

EmBee said...

Your greeting alone says it all... I like you so much already!

I am always fascinated with life in foreign lands and am so excited to read about yours.

I read your side-bar and am so moved by the 'Chesterton' quote, I've written it down and am posting it on my fridge. I simply love quotes and this one makes me almost want to cry... Either that or it's the menopause kickin' in again.

Off to get to know you!
:-)

Rhea said...

hey saucy sista! ok...love the picture! the cow and the birds...too much fun for me!

Julianne said...

Namaste right back at you. I look forward to looking around.

"Trailing Spouse" is an actual term, huh? That's nuts. I do like "Broad Abroad" but understand that you gotta keep Mom happy.

Deanna said...

Congrats on being today's SITSTA! Love your blog!

Summer Saldana said...

Congrats Saucy Mama!

Love your blog, and your kids are so adorable! (which always works out well when they're driving you nuts, huh?)

Rela Pantaleon-Manigsaca said...

Learned something new (and more) today - trailing spouse!. Does that refer to the diplomat's spouse only or is it a generic term?

so, did you interview Aunt Libby of her secret? Pray tell!

Brenda Jean said...

I learned too-- a term I'd never heard of, but then again you are the first wife of a diplomat that I've met:) I don't get out much. bAHAHAHAHa Congrats on being featured. I'm off to read...

Ronnica said...

Cute site! You should have named it "A Broad Abroad" anyway. =)

TheMama said...

What an amazing blog!

Hello from MA, and happy SITS Day!

Namaste!

(Which, btw I very rarely hear anyone use out side of yoga studio around here. Is it far more commonly used than we think?)

Wow! Your blog is fascinating. I had to go back and read every single post. I'm not even quite sure where Nepal is, but I so enjoy reading about the traditions of another country, especially from an American point of view. What a great adventure your family is having.

Jamy said...

Congrats on being featured, SITSta! I love 'a broad abroad'. That is way clever! I enjoyed your featured posts. Especially the one about 'Bollywood'. I'm gonna have to check some of those out! I thought your description of them was funny. All the random music and dancing and how they use the same actors over and over again!

Kat said...

Oh, I love reading about people living in other places! Congrats on your SITS day...and so sorry I am a day late (and a dollar short) to the party!

Eudae-mamia said...

I've got a sick 2-year-old, so I cannot give your site its deserving peruse right now, but WOW - what a great gift for your children to be able to see the world.

I'll be back when someone stops puking!!!!

Congrats on Featured Blogger.
