A Few of My Favorite Things

I wanted to list a few of my favorite things that we cannot get here in Malawi. They are in no particular order (except for the first one). I am missing it the most. I am dreaming about it every night. Seriously. So if you know of a way I could get some here, that would be great. Well, here is the list:

1. Dr. Pepper
2. Dove chocolate
3. Days of Our Lives (yes, I am a Days fan)
4. Target
5. My mini van (never thought I would say that)
6. Fritos, Tostitos, any corn chips
7. Tootsie Rolls
8. Fast Internet
9. Going to the grocery store and being able to find everything that I need/want (not really a favorite thing, but something I miss)
10. Survivor

Don’t get me wrong. I have some favorite things here also. They are in no particular order (again, except for the first one):

1. The quality time I have with my family
2. Bananas (much better here)
3. Teaching a variety of nationalities
4. Only having to go to the grocery store once a week (it’s a long day, but I only have to do it once)
5. Ethiopian Food (it’s the best; if you never had it, you need to try it)
6. Indian Food (it’s my second favorite food)
7. Being able to go to bed early and not feeling guilty about not getting everything done
8. Our puppy, Lucy
9. Diddle Daddle (it’s like Fiddle Faddle or Poppy Cock without the peanuts)
10. Having a garden and not having to do a thing to get anything out of it (we have a great gardener, Frank)

I’m sure if I sat long enough, I could think of many more things that are my favorites from America and from here in Malawi.

Seriously though, if anyone has any idea how to get Dr. Pepper here, I would be a very happy person. ☺

We love you,
