So, how are you?

A question I am frequently asked and have the hardest time answering! The answer is generally found somewhere between "great" and "I don't know exactly". So, here's how I would love to answer this question next time it is asked of me:

-The Genius option on iTunes has saved me from many a bad mood.
-Peas are my new favorite veggie.
-Skype makes my life exponentially better than it would have been without it.
-The seeds in the middle of Jackfruit freak me out a little (I think they look like unborn babies. See, disturbing.).
-I now put chilli powder (yes, 2 l's) in everything--including chocolate desserts and vegetable soup.
-Grief, quite frankly, sucks. And then it meets Jesus. And then you are better than you were before.
-After being exposed to a portion of the 1 billion Indians in this country, my husband is still my favorite person in the world.
-I've had a sudden realization that once you get pregnant, you can't go back (no, we are not pregnant. Just an epiphany I've recently had.).
-I WILL learn Tamil.
-I'm more anxious for Heaven than ever.
-I've cooked some pretty stellar meals lately.
-I love and hate my 2 mile walk to get groceries.
-My Christmas 'pudge' is officially gone. One of the many gifts India has given me.
-I really like my family a lot.
-Best friends having babies might be one of the greatest things in the world.
-I can take "long walks on the beach" whenever I want to.
-India is a home for us now.
-Christ is often found in the strangest of places...

So, that's how I am. All of those things wrapped up into one is me, today.

so, how are you??

American Culture Quiz

Part of the trainings I've been doing include getting the trainees familiar with American culture. As a way to decide who will get to go first on an activity, I said the first side to name 5 Major League Baseball teams gets to go first.


Ok, 3 teams.


"Umm, the New York Yankees...the Chicago Bulls....the Los Angeles Lakers."

I guess the good news is that we still have 2 weeks of training left.
