Busy Busy

You'd think I'd learn that Istanbul is never slow - even in our down times at work, we're still kept busy with everything we can't do during the visit crunch.  December was great - we got a lot of reporting done, in anticipation of January being mostly a lost month for us.  On the weekend of January 6-8, we got slammed with three congressional delegations, which kept me busy the entire time.  After my delegation went wheels up for their next stop, Eric took me out to dinner at an Asian restaurant we love. (There are so few in town, and this one has a great view overlooking the Bosphorus bridge.)

I got a bit of a surprise before dinner, though - Eric proposed!  Unsurprisingly, I said yes - and now we find ourselves in a bit of a scramble planning a wedding in 2.5 months.  The big day is 31 March, here in Istanbul, just a few weeks before we PCS to Tripoli.

No rest for the weary around here - though this is the kind of busy-ness I can get on board with.  :)

  6. You said, "before we PCS to Tripoli"; does that mean that Eric secured a job there already? That would be awesome!
