Hello! I have been absent for a while, but that is because life has gotten busy, and sometimes running around all day for mundane tasks make very little writing material on paper.
It felt like I spent the entire month of December in the air, literally. Flying from LA to China, another city in China, back to LA. After getting off the grueling flight we got the sad news that one of our relatives had passed away, so we rushed to attend the funeral in another State right before Christmas. Getting flights and arranging pet boarding services during Christmas week was tough, but we made it and was able to say our final goodbye and spend some time to be with family. That was pretty much all the family gathering we had this holiday season, though under very sad circumstance.
Looking back, this year has been good and bad. We got Uggie as our third pet, and having three dogs changed our life style in many ways. My husband and I traveled quite a bit considering how much he also worked. After much consideration I decided to take a different career path and it was a big challenge. We had a few scary moments like the bat incident and the fire place disaster, but they were insignificant in retrospect. There has been times of good health and poor health, happy moments and sad moments, at the end of year, I am feeling just a little bit older but perhaps more grown up. Instead of making my usual list of resolution, I think this year I will just have a positive attitude, and let life happen on its own without too much planning.
