An Apartment In Madrid, holds an unexpected-from-the-inside-out adventure of someone trying to live and teach abroad.

I thought it would be cool... I'd been working in Italy and absolutely loved my job. I came back to the States with a stack of paperwork to get my working permit and the Consulate flat out said no, "this is a contract for EU citizens. ARE YOU AN EU CITIZEN?" Devastated I muttered, "My life is there." The attendant became momentarily tender and softly said, "I know." I know? How did he know?

I'm a new Grandma with a 2 1/2 year old grandson and have two grown children of my own. I've been married a couple of times, not my idea, all I ever wanted was to get married once, have a boatload of kids, cook, clean. drive them to football games, but the universe had another plan that I tried to roll with as best I could. I've always been an adventurer at heart. Let's see where it takes me this time. The best would be if we get to share this one together.
