Consider how thoroughly the odds are stacked against us at the moment:
We just got back from three and a half glorious, sun-soaked weeks in dear old Arizona, dear old home. I can't express how good it was to see everyone: family, friends, you will be missed.
Our internal clocks are still on Arizona time: we slept until 2 p.m. this afternoon.
The weather is downright freezing here (and that's not hyperbole!) and most likely will be until late March or even April.
School starts on Monday, as does a new job for Teriann.
And on and on... moan, moan, moan. For all this bellyaching though, we have a lot to be thankful for: it's great to be back with the flatmates; once the initial push of getting back into school passes and I get some inertia built up, I really do enjoy school and the people there; and it's not everyone that has the opportunity to live in Europe for two years. As long as it seems right now, the next year and a half will fly by, and we'll have some amazing times traveling.
So it's a temporary slump, to be sure, but do I ever wish April would hurry up and get here.
