The Hot Pot Blog

June 22, 2013



Ugh.  I’ll have to excuse myself in a few minutes to go chug some more Pedialyte but, hi.  After a 15 hour flight, a 6 hour layover, another flight, a 2 hour drive, a few delays and about 28 hours of travel total, Will and I made it to America.

Where upon I promptly succumbed to a particularly potent brain-eating version of jetlag and a nasty stomach bug imported from Mother India.

Thank goodness for grandparents.  I don’t actually know how we would have gotten through the last week without them.

I have a new camera.  It is gorgeous, though I haven’t gotten a chance to use it much yet.  The weather here is gorgeous.  Will is in heaven playing with his grandparents and seeing tractors, cows and giant trucks on a daily basis.*


He is not, it should be said, entirely fond of goats and other barnyard creatures but tractors, man.


More pictures hopefully coming soon.  Until then, let me raise a glass of Pedialyte to the Internet and say “cheers.”

*Lest these photos cause any confusion, my parents don’t actually live on a farm but Will has already had the chance to visit one.  Lucky little kid he is!

    Hope you get better soon! You better since you have to enjoy all America has to offer, and by that I mean Chipotle… 😉 Enjoy your R&R!

      HA! My parents hometown JUST got a chipotle and my husband could not be happier. Finally we have a reason to visit besides, you know, family. 🙂

  3. aww.. hope you recover from your GI virus or whatever it is you brought from overseas, soon. (those tend to stay in the system awhile, even after you have crossed borders, i noticed.) get lots of rest and drink lots of water. hope your time in the States is rejuvenating and restorative.

      Thank you so much! It took a good week and a half but I finally made it to the mend and am enjoying our time here so much!
