Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I'm 48, married 21 years, mother of two. Expatriate. I grew up in Ohio, and, in fact, we now have a house there (my summer "dacha" in my "ancestral village"). But most of the time we live in Moscow. Well, now we do. We used to live in Bratislava. I'll wait while you go look that up . . .
What is your blogging philosophy?
Try not to self-censor. Tell it like it is.
I have been blogging since...
2005? I think.

See that thing on the far left? That looks like a thin metal rod? It's not metal. And yesterday it broke off IN the front door.



This is how it works. The system is called a "Dom-O-Fon." (Dom means house in Russian.) If you are visiting me, you turn the dials to match the code for my apartment (see . . . it says in Russian "number apartment"). The numbers are supposed to appear in the little round… Continue

Hat Trick of Horror

[I posted this on my blog on Friday, February 13, 2009. I am an American expat in Moscow.]

1. There is always a potential for a scrum of people at the bottom of any Metro escalator. I don't… Continue
