Bio

This is the bio that's been here for years:

Reading, reading, reading

Central Asia, Middle East, Islam

Arabic, Russian, Farsi

Travel, food, cooking

Quiet, quiet, quiet

Mormon, homeschooler, 3 boys

Geysers, mountains, ocean

Spinning, quilting, crocheting


But I think it's time for a more traditional version.  I'm a global nomad who has lived twice in Palestine, twice in Kyrgyzstan, Mexico, and the US in Pennsylvania, Virginia, New Jersey, Washington, Idaho, and Utah.  We'll move to Saudi Arabia in a few months.

Since I also have three children, I homeschool to save our sanity through all these moves (21 so far). We have two in high school and one in elementary school.

I clean my own bathrooms, have lived in a house with no plumbing, shop locally but cook globally, read constantly, speak many languages badly, and love learning how to live in a new country, no matter what type of expats we are.
