So I started blogging to record the wonders of this new life. I blogged about making a home on the mission field and about learning to adjust. Well here I am years later, actually 13 years later and there's nothing new. It's all ol' hat and there isn't any new discoveries now. We may not be Croatian but we belong here for the most part. We know how to do everything, we know what not to do and it's a part of us now. The adventure is over, or at least is seems that way.
I could defiantly see a turning point in my blogging. I could tell when things slowly stopped amazing me. I was no long thrilled by the 2,000 year old architecture, the strange eats here didn't seem so strange any more, I could actually order sliced turkey at the meat counter and I learned to love their Turkish coffee. So I slowly stopped blogging. I knew I needed new material but when everything seems ho-hum and you're not a big "sharer" then it becomes hard to find stuff to write about.
It's a bummer now that I think about it. I wish things were a little fresher for me, like it used to be but things change. The fact that life here is normal and I'm not dealing with daily culture shock should be a good thing. I should be happy with life as usual but somewhere inside I sure miss all the adventure. Life is turning for us, things are drastically changing and guess I'm gonna have to get busy and create so new adventure. Hmm, maybe I'll end up with some blogging material, who knows.
