Having trouble deciding whether or not I’m happy to be back in America. I’m happy for things like access to sushi restaurants (although I haven’t had time to go to one yet…) and farmer’s markets, but not so happy for things like consumerism and fat people. I’m not happy at returning to the world of technology. I miss being impossible to contact for people like debt-collectors and ex-husbands. One ray of sunshine, however, would be the fact that I have now proven that moving from the deployment world to the civilian world has had no effect on Mike and I’s relationship although my father thought that it would. So, at least that’s one thing I can check off on the very long list of obstacles standing in the way of our relationship.
