Thank you so much for all the wonderful emails and comments! They really mean so much to me especially since I am awwwe uhwone. Just me and my vanilla coke. I love Vanilla Coke but you can't get it in the US anymore (at least not where I'm from). I walked into the 7-11 and there she was... calling to me. sigh. Sorry Jax, mama needs it! ;o)
Mountain Man and his little empresses are having great times, eating junk food, going to zoos and parks, getting gifts everyday and staying up late. You think they miss me?
As I sit here with my vanilla coke and pretz I spy a card inviting me to join a group for the morning run.... sigh... maybe tomm. I went out and walked around a bit here on Shamian Island. Things have changed since 2005. Sherry's is closed as well as Jennifer's.... :( You use to come here and see hundreds of families with children no matter what day or time, I only saw two small groups. Who knows, maybe they were all at consulate appointments or touring. Such beautiful, beautiful children... What lucky parents.
I went into a little shop, looking for black silky tops for my sons. I picked one out and I told her another, then another when she said "How many son you have?" I replied "3" "Ahhhh! Oooo! You lucky, lucky mama!" and then she went to tell everyone in the store I had three sons. When she came back I was looking at these light soft silk dresses unlike the ones I usually see. She said, "Oh, you need gift?" I said " No, I need for my daughter" She replied "Oh,! You have daughter too?!" Me: "I have 3" She gasps and runs around the store again telling them how I have a three daughter and a three son! I was hoping to get a bigger discount ;). I asked her to find me some antique bound feet shoes... she showed me some and said that they where hand made. I told her "No, I want 50-100 year old bound feet shoes and I would be back on the 30th to get them if she can find them" She quizzically asked "Why you want so old... no good. new" I told her I like old things. ;o) So she will try and get me some very old shoes once used for lily feet. A wonderful thing about China. If you ask for something, they will go out and find it and bring it to you later.
Well, it is 1:09 am and I am wide awake... drinking vanilla coke and eating buttery pretz (like a salty, sweet pretzel and boy they are good- did I mention that?). Have a blessed day! I'm going to Fujian Fuzhou this afternoon! eeee I get Willow tomm.! Am I dreaming?
Jeannie and Bane; Teresa and Jimmy, I will going to the orphanage on the 26th to take your little sweeties their goodies from their mommies and daddies!
Baby books and Soft silk dresses for the empresses... I will get Willow's when I see how big or how little she is.
Black for the sons - they are finding me the third....
What can I say? It's 2:00 in the morning, I'm bored.
oooooo, I kind of like this one. It's the hotel across the river....with me wiggling lol... artsy :o)
