The non-intentional part was because I just didn't "feel" like writing for the time being. But, because part of the intent of this blog is to be a journal and record for my children, it's time to start writing again. I'm started to "feel" like writing again, now I just need to find the time (hello, three kids)!
At the end of 2013, I shared with friends on Facebook that on paper our 2013 looked really bad. A very emotional adoption, ChinaBean's open heart surgery which resulted in myself and the girls staying in the US for three months while Jamie was working in China, and of course the tornado. But, when I look back on the year what I see are blessings & answered prayers. ChinaBean did indeed join our family forever, the surgery was successful and ChinaBean was out of the hospital in 5 (!) days, and I wanted to remodel the kitchen in our US home and now, well, I get to do it all from the ground up now.
|After the new year I did what my friend calls a|
"brain dump" and wrote down everything I could think of
that needed to be on my to-do list. I filled two pages front
and back. The highlighted ones are completed (yay)!
So, now, where were we?
