I am SO sick of being told I'm too pale. Look people, I'm white! I'm Scot-Irish, I don't get dark, DEAL! Italians are beautiful people and all that, but honestly, most of you look the same, get used to a little variety!

I hear ya! And I'm from the desert! But it's the humidity that kills me, I'm absolutely miserable through July/August as I have asthma. Thankfully we do have A/C, and it's been put to pleanty of use of late!
Things here in Abruzzo are ok. I've been having a bit of a rough time in the last few months with health/personal issues- things I hope to be triumphing over SOON! It is however a very hard time to be away from family and close friends. I've finally got a job, after nearly two and a half years of living here (granted I wasn't actually looking, it literally fell in my lap). Teaching English (of course) in a little private school close to my house. The students are all lovely (though of course it's quite slow now that it's summer). The owner of the school is the embodiment of Mrs. Havisham- she's absolutely mad, a total riot!
I'd love to get away next month, but it's not gonna happen. We've a couple wedding's in the autumn in the US we'd love to make it to, and money's very tight. Hubby and I've decided while he's off of work in Aug. we'll take a vacation to IKEA!
Oh, yes, and as those of you who are on fb know, we've just gotten a kitten, Tuna. She was 3 weeks old when she came to us, and quite ill, but she's a fighter and doing brilliant now, a spunky lil' pig!
