More focused and aware. 磨炼意志，能坚持跑步最起码证明自己耐得住性子，有毅力。
Run with a friend. 挺喜欢一个人跑步的，带上我的AKG，选好想听的歌，就这么出发了。跟Ethan一起跑步更有趣一点，Ethan得跑到下个路口，原地溜达等我，我就会紧赶慢赶的跑过去 。还有就是Ethan会备好钞票，给我买饮料跟烤串~我一向都是兜比脸干净的出门跑步~哈哈
Work different muscles. 上班一直对着电脑，总感觉颈椎亚历山大，浑身不舒服，去泰式按摩，足疗也只能管两天效果。跑步出身汗，消除了一身的疲乏+紧张感~紧梆梆的肌肉可以放松放松~省钱良方捏~ Continue Reading
Last weekend Ethan went to Shanghai to attend a meeting at Shangri-La. It was supposed to be a quick fun trip. But as it’s weekend, I bought a ticket and went there together with him. We ate some great local food, and went to shopping at the mall.
It’s supposed to be quality happy hours. But it’s not. How was your weekend? I hope it was much better than mine!
I tried to let go of the anxiety, knowing there was literally nothing I could do. But there was a constant nag in the back of my mind. I started thinking about some of favorite things. It’s funny how we can find something to complain about so easily when there are so many things that we have to be grateful for. I think sometimes we just forget to stop and think about the little things that make us happy. Life is busy, I get it. But slow down every once in a while and try to appreciate the small things. You won’t regret it.
I think it’s okay if people complain, kind of.
I used to share only the happiness on social media, and try my hardest not to complain as I don’t want anyone to know my pain or discomfort. I laughed at those who constantly complain how the world has wronged them. But now I think it’s perfectly acceptable to share the details of the not-so-pretty parts of life with close friends.
When complaining, I’m seeking for advices, or am attempting to talk through something. When I have discussions with new moms we usually agree that sometimes often being a mom is hard. Then we try to brainstorm ways to make it easier on ourselves. We share ideas and swap stories and triumphs and failures. Continue Reading
A friend of mine in Yangzhong invited me for dinner last weekend and so I decided to make a trip down for it. It takes 2 hours for driving. It was fun to chat, eat road trip junk food, and just have that time together. We arrived at Yangzhong and checked into our hotel in time.
I haven’t seen him since his wedding ceremony. I loved spending so much time with him.
The weekend didn’t last long enough and we left and headed back to Suzhou the next afternoon 🙁
Two months down, and ten more to go. I have just returned to work after the 10-day holiday during spring festival, it’s already March. I want to use this word “EMBRACE” for March. As I can see this month could be joyful yet difficult.
February has been a month of adjusting to our new daily rhythms as a family of five. My husband’s father has come to Suzhou and stayed with us in February. As he will leave at the end of March, I mostly keep silent when he is babbling. In his eyes, we have been doing all things wrong. You should do this, and should not do that. Please stop your damn bellyaching!!! I am getting sick to see his poker face every day. The best way to deal with him is to stay away. I don’t want to stay at home, when he is at home.
Hope everything will be OK in March. Between work, and being with the baby… the time is not just enough. This February, my husband and I barely ate dinner together at home. I had to hold the baby and watch in hunger as my husband’s father ate. Needless to say, his father sat at the table, and ate at least an hour.
My husband’s father will leave soon. Really look forward to that.
