Do I really have time to have a blog again?

I've been asking myself this question for a year.  The answer is, of course, no.  But that often doesn't stop me from doing something that seems fun and like a great way to increase the amount of hours I spend staring at my computer.

The bigger question has been, how do you write a blog about life as an ex-pat if you aren't an ex-pat any more?  And, how do you avoid writing a blog about being a mom?  Not that there's a problem with writing a blog about being a mom; I just thought it was a bad idea for me to try, since I was relatively new at the job.

But, I've been thinking, I want to have a space to verbally process ideas about how to be a mom of "reverse ex-pat" kids.  I made that term up in the shower about 15 minutes ago (yes, I managed to take a shower, with a newborn in the house. *and there was much rejoicing*).  A reverse ex-pat kid is a kid who is American, living in America, but have parents (also American) with a strong connection to another country, and want to pass that connection on to their kids.  That's us. is my blog about being a reverse ex-pat parent.
