We’re off To Rome!!!

Posted on

We’re leaving today for Rome to apply for my baby’s Report of Birth Abroad (American Birth Certificate), Social Security Card, and PASSPORT! 20 months old and she’s going to have a passport…crazy. We’ve already done all her Italian paperwork, minus the Passport so I wanted to make sure she got all her American stuff out-of-the-way as well. Sometimes being a foreigner has me feeling pretty lonely. Often I long to talk face-to-face with a fellow countryman. It was really bothering me that not even my own daughter was of the same nationality so my husband thought that certifying her citizenship as well as spending a couple days in Rome would be a great birthday present for me. He was right!  I really can’t imagine my little monkey in front of the coliseum, ha. She’s so young and it’s so…ancient. Maybe there is where I can take my photoaweek photo for this week’s challenge-topic: old. This really jacks up my postaday 2011 agreement so I guess I’ll be doing double posts for a few days to catch up.

I wanted to share this information with you so you’d know why I won’t be posting for a few days. I’ll be back the 14th to blog, blog away so DON’T FORGET ABOUT ME!!! Come back and read all I’ve got to say about our little adventure, until then au revoir!

I've got a lot to say. I guess that's why most people start a blog, right? They've got thoughts, ideas, gripes, whatever, that they feel they must share with the world. Kind of egotistical, no? I mean, who's really going to read this? Am I so interesting that I can hold your attention over the rest of the world wide web? Strange to think that it could be possible. If you've read this far, you should know a little 'about me' as this portion is titled. Ok so, I live in Central Italy with my husband and daughter. He's an Italian citizen, I'm an American citizen which makes our baby...doomed, as well has a dual citizen. The cultures do more than clash. They kick, bite, and beat the crap out of eachother. You have to have a very worldly outlook to marry someone from another country. People around the world are raised very differently from one another. What's perfectly normal in one area of the world is cause for major concern in another. I stand in front of the fan to cool off when it's August and the heat is insane and the humidity keeps you sticky 24 hours a day. My husband is convinced I've some sort of superhuman powers to not have caught some serious illness by doing this. Sound senseless, it is. Italians are full of ridiculous beliefs that hold no ground outside the land of make-believe and nut-cases. But who am I to tell anyone that the sayings of their great-great-great Aunt Maria are bullshit? So I just listen and nod. Well that brings you a bit up to speed on my current situation, yeah? Ok so, read me blog now kiddies. Toodaloo!
