Home Leave

Posted in Foreign Service Life, Home at 12:07 pm by graceandpoise

Some Foreign Service Officers consider Home Leave more of a curse than a blessing.  We are not those officers.  We are comparatively free agents, being basically homeless, without children or pets to haul around, and with parents and other loved ones who are not only willing but eager to host us for a while.  We’re got errands and doctor’s appointments to do that we couldn’t – or were scared to – do in India.  But mostly we are trying to rest, relax, recharge, reconnect.  It’s a blessing to have the opportunity to do so.


  1. You go, girl! That sounds heavenly.

    We’re right behind you – heading to Seattle in 3 weeks-ish. Can’t wait.
