The good news is that my brother reports I most certainly don't sound like Madonna. It has been an easy transition to get back into life in the States. The only big shocker was going into CVS drugstore and seeing all the choices of products. I had a near melt-down with all the options. To top it off my favorite snack food is in season - peeps - which were difficult to resist (never buy them before Easter since they are grossly over priced - they must be purchased post-holiday for appropriate bing prices.)
Yesterday I drove for the first time in six months. That too came back without a thought. I knew we were back into our States mode because Stephen micromanaged my driving and I bickered with him for doing so. Yup, we're easily adjusting.
