A Series of Unfortunate Events

Ok, so…worst day-off in a long, long time. We ended last night finding out that we have an incredible TV in our bedroom, and watched “Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.” We had never turned this TV on before, and I don’t like having a TV in the bedroom, but it had the best…

Our first Month…

It’s been a month already! 30 May 2013 at 02:57 It has been a month.  A very, very crazy month.  We are on to a better schedule now, and hopefully, it might get even better.  I have been informed that I will be moving to a center that is only 8 minutes away.  This hasn’t…

Shanghai..in the beginning… 2 May 2013 at 22:11 Ok, here is the 2 week update.  It has to have been longer than that.  Well, anyway, The flights sucked, but you might remember those posts.  Yes, eventually we did all get seats together on every flight, but the very idea was ridiculous, as was the idea of…
