You wanted mundane...

Well Marie, it's been a week since you left and we are all wondering how you are adjusting to life in Afghanistan. We will have to come up with a nickname for Afghanistan, because it is too long to spell out all the time and you have to really think about the spelling. So if anyone has any ideas, I am open to them!
I know summer is in full swing here because Basil got his annual summer ear infection. Yes, you got it. That means daily ear drops and cleaning followed by excessive bouts of snarfing. Also, we went strawberry picking on Sunday which is a sure sign of summer around here. We've already attended one of three graduation parties so we are off and running for the summer!
Good news! Keith and Lauren are coming up for the weekend for a wedding, so it will be great seeing them. I'm not sure how your family can go so long without seeing you, because the 3 months since we've seen Keith seems like a long time. We will see them again when we go down in August, so it won't be too long after that.
Other than that, it's been same old, same old. But that's ok, I like routine. I guess I'm not like some people who are always looking for someplace exotic to go! :) Wonder who that could be?
Anyway, hope all is well. Keep us posted!
Love, Aunt Ann

Basil! Oh how I miss that puppy, and the snarfing, of course. And, Aunt Ann, how impressed am I that you've just posted to a blog? The world turns round and round! I flew out on the most beautiful full moon, and somehow...maybe because of the time change, the moon still seemed full when I got to Dubai. As we flew in over the gulf and the desert, the moon was shining off of the sand. It was so beautiful, and I took it as a good sign.

Keep writing, Aunt Ann! Don't stop there! I love you all and think of you all the time.
