Banter from Brabant

Today's the day

I leave to meet my husband TODAY! I have been very anxious to see him after being apart for nearly 2 weeks. The flight departs in about 8 hours from Chicago, and I will arrive in Brussels on Monday around 1:30pm Central time - about 8:30pm Brussels time.

It really hit home that I was leaving last night when I said good-bye to my family for a whole year. I was not particularly nervous until then, and now I cannot get my stomach to settle. I will likely see some family members next May when they visit. Wow - this is the first time I have been apart from family for so long... I am already looking forward to their visit, and I am not even gone yet!!!

I hope everyone is doing well, and keep us in your thoughts. We will update as we can, and FYI - the keyboards are different in Belgium so bear with us;) We do not have internet in our new home.


  • Best of luck, you lucky bastards! We'll be thinking of you (and talking shit about Doug, in an endearing kind of way).

  • You'll be able to get free wireless internet access all over your new city with your laptop I'd say.

  • Dammit Beth; I miss you already. I cried on the way home from Michelle's, and I was so sad yesterday morning and afternoon.

    I can't wait until May.

  • Hey Beth and Doug,
    I wanted to take a minute to say hi, I hope both of your flights went well!

  • Kevin,

    We had to pay 16.60 Euro per month for a cable connection -- our laptop doesn't have a wireless card (contrary to what we were told by the gelled-haired suburban Bestbuy Salesboy) and I don't think our area would pick up the signal anyway.
