In preparing to relocate continents it seems sensible to do the rounds of one’s healthcare providers. It is NOT sensible to let your dentist drill into your teeth 24 hours before your flight. A school girl error really. I’m not that experienced with matters of the teeth having never needed any serious prior work. A week on we’re settling into Turkey but my jaw still aches.
The jet lag is the worst that I’ve experienced, but the house is lovely and I sent off the chapter to my editor yesterday. It was basically no different than the draft as it stood before the drilling but I didn’t trust myself to let it go. We began intensive Turkish Friday. Four hours every afternoon for 20 sessions. Being an elementary student again will certain inform my teaching next fall.
A travel blog by both of us is in the works. This will remain primarily about work.
