New Years Eve 2005
So today is New Years Eve and my little girl is now 11 months and terrorizing our downstairs neighbours as she has been learning how to bounce and has started stomping her feet.
I should probably give them a New Years gift to say sorry and thanks for not shooting us through their ceiling.
This morning Li had to get his lazy butt out of bed early and make lunch for our friend Kelly. (Forgot to take a picture before we devoured.) Kelly is off to his mother land of New Zealand next week and this was our last bit of time with him. We have known him for 6 years and I really do love that crazy kiwi.
He dazzled me with some horror stories about shipping containers and we talked away for a few hours. JiXiang was a wonderful girl and settled down for her afternoon nap before Kelly arrived so we were able to eat well and had a great conversation before she awoke and took over.
Love you Kelly and I am going to miss you terribly.
Li is now being a couch potato and is literally asleep on the couch.
Last night we ate Canadian crab. It was ok: unfortunately not fresh but Li did a great job with it. He actually took a picture as well. I am trying to get him to make a blog about his cooking: haven’t succeeded yet.
I don’t think we are doing anything together for dinner tonight. Li is abandoning me to play with his friends tonight, so it is just me, JiXiang and the computer. I found some chicken noodle soup at KO Mart the other day so I am going to indulge in that. I also have a very long traditional post that I need to write.
It is the hardest one of the year to write and still part of my mental healing process right now.
But, What must first and foremost be said is:
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY!!!!
I am wishing all of my family, friends, and cyber friends out there the best of luck in the upcoming year. Love you all!
(I am having troubles uploading pictures right now, so will add them seperatly I think.)
