That's us. Isn't he handsome?
Living in Hong Kong was wonderful, and we both have our families living there. We decided that we wanted something a little different, however, so we made the crazy decision to completely relocate. We made some rough plans, flew out to see some land, applied for an American Visa (Tim is a Brit passport holder) and a few months later we were Georgian residents! We are building a home on a beautiful piece of land. In the meantime however...the motel.
On the plus side, it's actually a bit bigger than our most recent shoebox of a flat in Hong Kong. On the downside, the cooking facilities are...limited, to say the least. Limited, as in--there's a microwave. And a mini-fridge. Throw in the fact that I'm unused to shopping in American grocery stores, and we have a problem. Lots of trial and error (you can cook what in a microwave?) but we're learning.
Exercise wise, I'm so lucky to have a hubby who knows how important being active is to me! As soon as we arrived in America, he encouraged me to pursue something I had been thinking about for a while--getting certified as a personal trainer. And now, I can proudly say that I am! We are also members of a great gym in the area, are close to some beautiful areas for hiking, and have a 2-mile loop that's perfect for running nearly right outside our (motel) door. Am I excited to eventually have a completed home, complete with treadmill (pretty please Tim?!) --you betcha! But in the meantime, I feel so lucky to have so many great resources at my disposal and we're definitely doing the best we can. Wish me luck!
