My Mom's job~

My Mom has the coolest job. She works for a company that has the government contract to run the WIC offices on the military installations throughout Europe and Asia. When my parents were living in Germany she worked for them full time. When they retired about two years ago she stayed on with them on an as needed basis. When they have a hole they need to fill temporarily they call her. Usually it's for a couple of months. She's been to Germany a couple of times and to England once. Her England trip ended up being 4 months which was great for me because I got to go and tour England at the end of those 4 months.

Well, she got a call the other day and guess where she's headed now? She's going to Italy! She's headed for Vicenza which is near Venice. She leaves this Monday for two months.

I always have mixed emotions when she goes on these adventures. I love having her around, even if she is 4 hours away. It's so nice to not have to think about what time zone she's in when I want to call. I love being able to go and see her for the weekend. Not that I do that very often but the option is there for me. But I know what a great opportunity this is for her. Who wouldn't love to go spend a few months in Europe? I wish I had her job. I would love it!!! So even though I will miss her I am happy she's going. In this day and age of email it's not like we can't communicate. Of course I'm going to try and figure out a way to get over there. I doubt it will happen with airline fares soaring the way they are but I'm going to try.

Hey Aim, If Ken will buy me a ticket you can take my place. People say we look alike often enough I am sure they wouldn't even bat an eyelash at you. Just take my drivers licence. I went without one for two+ years a week or two would be no big deal. Call me if you need anything while your mom is gone. Are you guys coming to Manda's on Sun?
