How much can life change in three years? The answer… a lot. Since we have been back several things have caught my eye that are different or new than when we left. Before you look at the few things on this list, I will readily admit…they are stupid things. There have been more serious things, but it is late and I didn’t want to post something heavy. After all, as my friend Cortney often tells me, it is not good to eat after 7:00 p.m. So maybe it is not good to write about serious stuff after 7 at night either.
First, on the list we have….
I have not tried these yet, but they look fun. And I put them on here mainly so my friend Grace, who is all but obsessed with them, will know they exist for future reference.
Second, is the…..
redbox??? What is that?? That’s the same question I had. If you should arrive in America after living overseas for a few years and decide to go rent a movie, you will be hard pressed to find a Blockbuster anywhere. No, instead you will have to go to Wal-Mart (and maybe other stores … I have only noticed them at Wal-Mart). There you will find a big red box where you can rent movies for like a $1. Crazy.
Third, we have the Kindle or some variation of it.
News of these had made it across the ocean, but I had no idea how popular they are. Are the days of flipping pages really gone….really? I am not a technology-hater, but I just really like the sound of pages turning, the joy at closing the back cover and putting the book back on the shelf.
And lastly, the reason I thought about doing this post in the first place (Mainly because I ate about a quarter of the container tonight before dinner) we have…(drumroll please)
Philadelphia Spinach and Artichoke Cream Cheese. Just stop and minute and think about that. I would like to thank Paul’s parents for introducing this high calorie but s0-delicious-I-could-eat-the-whole-container snack to me. It is great, fabulous, tasty, and will make your jeans tighter in the morning. So be warned.

Not good to eat after 7:00. Really? Wow, welcome to Italy.
