a string to connect pieces of my life

Tuesday, August 11, 2009


My parents and I are in AA this week. Starting next week, the condo management office will work on our roof and consequently (why?) our gas will be cut off. So I will probably stay at Jinli's for a couple of days so that I could be properly showered.

Finally one of our tomatos turned red. We picked it before the groundhog gets it who has already eaten two. My dad captured the whole crime act with his camera.

My parents have been wondering about the deers. Yesterday evening they finally saw a few pretty ones in our complex. Yay!

I feel the work stuff is beyond my capacity, so I am trying to take it easy.

so stressed

I don't know why I am so stressed. I feel my body is collapsing part by part. My neck was weird. And then my stomach hurt. Now my heart is complaining. Today I just want to sit in the couch doing nothing except staring at the pond out of our window.

Yet there is so much to do. But it's probably better for everyone that I take a day off.

recommend a post

Both the post and the comments are fun to read and quite enlightening.


It's time for me to do a little update too.

We had a great weekend. On Saturday we drove to Indianapolis, had lunch at the sushi buffet place, and walked around the lovely downtown area. My impression is that people there must love to remember the wars. They have built several structures for all kinds of wars. We also played a lot of cards at home, which was super fun.

Work is still busy. It doesn't feel like there is a end to it although we are trying to catch some deadline. Can't wait to take a week off.

My parents are in town this week. They were bonding with Mo pretty quickly, so that's good. I plan to take them to zingerman's sometime.
