Last half of August were an exhilirating whirl wind. Can't remember days with so many things happening since last year when we moved to the condo.
Yesterday we brought our son to the airport for his fourth year of teaching English in China.
My son came back from China and was our first overnight guest, so we had to clean up and rearrange things for that room (read: TOO MANY paintings), as well as the small bathroom he would use. Hubby installed a huge mirror. When I asked why it was up to the ceiling, he responded that if he stands straight, he can't see his head to comb his hair. Since son is a few inches taller than hubby, I could see his point.
We chauffeured him to his friends, which we didn't mind, 'cause our kids have the habit to share their friends with us, so they become our friends too (very clever-they never lack for a ride. But it's okay:) ). Saw even some friends he had become good friends with in China.
Of course we traveled to mid California to meet son's two sibs and families. Also because middle daughter's due date for her second baby was supposed to be Aug. 24 - contractions, but no baby yet!
Great get-togethers. For a parent I think that the easiest time with adult children is when they are in their mid-twenties, because they already have gained some wisdom, but still have an easy time to change their ways .
In the first week son was here the computer gave up the ghost (bad motherboard) and supposedly to fix it would be more than buying a new one.
Sigh - even though we saw it coming, still don't like to spend the money on it.
Now I'm faced with arm wrestling this animal, so I know how to subdue this beast!
Haven't discovered yet how to load up pics to my posts from my computer, which is trying my patience, but hopefully it won't take weeks!!!Wish me luck, bloggie friends:)
In the coming days I'll also reply to all the comments you made while I was gone. It was nice to come home to a blog that was still running!
