Hello...Anyone still out there?

I talked to my sister in Texas today.  She reminded me in her sweet way that she still checks my blog every once in awhile to see if the student with the red hoody has been replaced with a more current photo!

Alas!   (sigh)

I've neglected my blog for over a year and a half!

Mea Culpa!  (another sigh)

And, I even retired this year, so what's my problem?!  I should have more time, yah?

Ahhh...... (more sighs)

So I promised her--well, sorta gave her the indication--that I would try to get my act together and get this blog updated.  So much has happened.  Sooooo much!  And of course my sister, my past homestay students, (and you too, if you're still out there), would like to know and see photos of what's been going on, yah?

So watch this space.  Well, don't stare at it, because nothing will magically appear that quick!  But do come back soon, because I will try to catch you up to date with information and pics!

And that's a promise!


Homestay Mama


  1. Ahhh, G2M. Methinks you don't believe me! ;-)

  2. Hi Sue! Just going through my very stale blog roll because, as you may know, I've been absent for basically three years. But I'm venturing forth again and visiting blogs I've missed. Unbelievable how many of us fell off the face of the earth. Glad I see you on Facebook now and again!

  3. Oh, Tatersmama, I rarely have time to blog anymore--not with 5, count 'em, FIVE homestay students! I stretched out my home as far as it could go to squeeze in everyone who wanted to live here. Gave up my guest room and even my office downstairs and converted both into bedrooms for 2 Saudi students who really wanted to live here.
    But I'm getting too old to keep this up, so I'm planning to downsize this summer to a smaller house in Oregon closer to my son. I'll still have students, but only 2 instead of 5! Once I sell my house and move, then maybe I'll have more time to resume my blogging! In the meantime I'm glad we are connected on Facebook! ;-)

  4. I keep making that same promise to myself... and so far, I still keep falling behind! We move to Georgia next month, so I'll be watching this space... and you keep watching mine. :D

  5. Well, Tatersmama, I didn't move yet, and here you are moving halfway across the country! And I still have not updated my blog, and you have!!

    My hat's off to you, Tatersmama, you are definitely a woman of action! Maybe I can catch up in a year or three? :-}
