谁跑谁知道

可能是季节的原因,冬眠了两个月,囤了四斤肉,赶紧醒醒跑步去也。压马路太无聊了,而且汽车尾气真心难闻,在我家旁边有个玉山公园,跑到公园那边明显路程太短,狮山桥下面也有个小公园,但是又太远了,前天跑到狮山公园之后,发现累得已经跑不回家了~泱泱大国找个跑步的地儿还是挺难的,场地只能暂时定在玉山公园里的橡胶跑道了。

坚持了一个星期,觉得优点还是多多的~最近凹糟的天气真是受不了,经常跑着跑着就淅沥沥的小雨飘来了~

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

一切都不好,但好像一切又很好

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.

Weekend

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

人生的每一次相遇,都是久别重逢!

生活给我一个小拳头,我就大哭一回,然后回它一记铁砂掌。

生活里总有些东西是不该丢弃的,而有一些该丢到十万八千里远去的,就让它踩着风火轮远远的离开。

早上对着镜子吹头发的时候我假装自已是苏格拉底很哲学地沉思了一下:“这一年多以来我改变了什么呢?” 我那已逝的作为少女的青春年华姑且也称得上如山冈上那轮静静的满月一样无怨无悔的了,接下来的人生第一大事就是在通往中年大婶的道路上昂首挺胸,一往无前地阔步前进就是了。不想做个负能量女王,只是短短的时间,却是让我看透了很多的事情,待我好的我会努力地去回报,待我不好的那也与我无关紧要,我前所未有地看清,珍惜我所拥有的一切,就足矣。

最后,必须提一提扬中的好友,没错,说的就是你,四年多未见,感觉丝毫未变,下次再去扬中打个牙祭。扬中的河豚跟江虾那是一个名不虚传~还有生平第一次吃到油炸鸭脖子~

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 🙁

有爱的地方才是家

俗话说,金窝银窝都不如自己的狗窝。

嫁了人以后,我对所有嫁到异地的女孩都着一种敬畏的态度,不知道要用多少的爱,才能换取去一个陌生的地方生活的勇气。当她们受委屈的时候,当她们需要帮助的时候,除却她们的丈夫,再大的城市也找不到她们可以停靠的港湾。

昨天去泉屋买牙膏牙刷,舒适达用腻了,随手拿了一管狮王的牙膏,早上刷牙好惊喜啊,居然是苹果味的,有一种喝美年达的感觉~

老妈给了我一只口红,之前一直用唇彩,老妈挑的颜色还不错~”朱唇一点桃花殷”,黄脸婆立刻变成春风拂面的美女 。

周末去了趟蜜桃,据说是高圆圆开的,这家的菜很划算,烤肋排还可以。

昨天晚上炖了一锅番茄牛骨头汤,入口爽滑,祛痘补钙,酸酸甜甜~

做法:

1. 牛骨头冷水浸泡,冲洗干净,用热水滚一下,除去血污,腥味~

2. 加生姜两片,葱一小撮,番茄切块跟牛肉一起加入冷水中煮,捞去浮沫~

3. 大火烧开后,转小火,炖两个小时~

4. 用筷子戳一下,戳的动即可加盐,加糖出锅~

最近打算学习下家常菜,总有那么一个人值得你为他洗手作羹汤~

Embrace 2015 – March

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.
