On December 7, 1984 in a blinding snow storm, with a 3 year old and a 6 year old, I boarded a plane in Syracuse NY headed for JFK where I boarded another plane for a 14 hour flight landing in Dhahran Saudi Arabia. We were only staying for 2 years, it would be an adventure that not many people get to experience.
30 years later.................my AMERICAN DH and I are still in Saudi Arabia but our 3 year old and 6 year old are now adults with kids of their own living in the USA. It's still an adventure because we never know what new laws the religious zealots will make up next, what foods will be banned, what streets will be closed for construction on a daily basis.
I go HOME TO THE USA for 4-5 months EVERY summer to relax and enjoy my freedom.
PLAIN AND SIMPLE, LIVING HERE IS EASIER THAN RUNNING 2 HOUSEHOLD BUDGETS YEAR ROUND especially since our home is in the rural back mountains of New Hampshire where I would run heat and electricity, buy food, car maintenance.
Hurry up May 20!
