Rain and Microwaves!

It has been HOT!! Two weeks ago, it got up to 125 a couple of days! It has been realllllly hot! Then, all of a sudden, we had a "cool front". It was 100-105 every day and it really felt cool outside - yes, I know, crazy hunh? THEN..... yesterday and today is RAINED!!! It has felt GREAT!!! Here's a pic of what our street looked like when it rained yesterday :)

On another note... WE NOW HAVE A MICROWAVE!!! When we lived in M-town, our kitchen was small and could only have an oven or a microwave - so we ended up getting an oven... Some of our good friends just moved back to the states, so we bought their microwave from them (thanks J&K!). The problem is, we haven't had one in 2 years, so we sort-of forgot how to use one :)
haha! no, I didn't put a metal cup in the microwave :) (I did remember about that) but for our first use of the microwave, Adam tried to pop a bag of popcorn and really burnt it (that's why there's that nice brown spot on the back)... Then, the next day, we were heating leftovers up on the stove...and afterwards realized that we didn't need to make a bunch of new pots dirty, all we needed to do was stick it in the microwave. hahaha! Oh well :) We're going to have to get used to the conveniences of the microwave again :)

Today was the best day outside! I forgot how pleasant our city can be. It's cool you guys got a microwave.

Oh, and happy father's day Adam.

Before I even read the blog, I saw that picture with the can going in the microwave and got all nervous! :-)At least we can rest assured that it will get lots of use popping corn! Have you added any cool toppings recently?
I can not believe a cool front means 105 degrees- that's insane- how are you making it there pregnant- with your elevated body temp and all??????!!!
Whew! I will be adding that to my prayers for you!

So glad it rained and cooled off for you. How does the morning (all day) sickness go? Are you able to tell you are in the 2nd trimester yet?

We can totally relate on the microwave. I didn't have one the 2 years I was jman and the year we were in the states, I would forget to use it or couldn't remember times or things like that too! So, we haven't ever bought one!

YEAY for rain!! Bring on the monsoon! I'm a little jealous that you have a microwave too!! You can now actually pop the popcorn from the bag, instead of emptying it into another pot!!! that rocks!

Florida Gators!

OK, so don't get me wrong by the title... I'm a super proud Florida State Grad and a big FSU fan... but this week here in Thailand, Tim Tebow is hanging out with us :) For those that don't know, he's the quarterback for University of Florida - he's a believer and a really awesome bold guy. So, since he's a Heisman winner (AND the only underclassman to ever win the Heisman) we thought we should get Aashini in a Heisman pose with him :) haha!

The Hijras are Coming!!!!

Today we had a fun / interesting cultural experience :) Here in our country, there are these people called Hijras हिजड़ा .... or Eunuchs. Most of these people are true eunuchs - they were born without male or female parts. They all live together in their own ghetto. If you have a child that is a Hijra, then they will come and demand you for your child and people here will give them their child. They all live together and in order to get money, they mostly do a glorified sort of begging. They are always dressed to the hilt. They come and visit you when you've had something big happen in your life - usually weddings and.... NEW BABIES. They come and dance and make a HUGE ruckus. They ususally do this until they are given a large amount of money. Some of them can be quite crazy and violent, but mostly they will just annoy you to death, barge into your home (or wedding) and dance and sing around until you give them money (usually around $100-200 is their demand).

Campa Cola & Exploring :)

Today we had some things to do in the Central part of our city, so while we were there, we decided to take on some adventures :) Adventure #1 - the underground market. This market is pretty crazy. It's actually underground and has electronics & clothes mostly. They sell things pretty cheap, so it's an interesting place to go. Today we got an 64 Gig flash drive/pen drive for about $5. Crazy hunh? Here's Adam and Aashini in one of the stores. They're all REALLY small stores - about 10x10 feet I would guess (but I'm really bad at guessing that sort of stuff :)) We go here a lot to get things, so I guess it's not a new adventure, but an adventure nonetheless.
Before the next part of our adventure (the real part of our adventure) we stopped for lunch. Aashini will always eat at McDonalds, so that's where we went :) They just started selling chicken nuggets here at McDonalds, so it's super easy to get her to eat there :) This McDonald's had high chair…
