It’s been over 2 weeks since I posted on the blog. That’s probably the longest break I have taken in over a year. Yes, I’m alive. Barely. Well, ok, I’m exaggerating a little.
The winter wasn’t as tough as I expected, but going into spring has been tougher than I thought. After a series of flus, piling on the busy season at work, I just felt exhausted. Making it to the office for 7 am became harder, and keeping my eyes open at the dinner table sometimes became impossible. I barely tried any new recipes worth mentioning. Wah wah wah.
The good news is, all this is coming to an end this week. Come hell or high water, we’re getting on a plane on Saturday morning to begin our vacation! We are spending 4 days in Tokyo, and 8 days in Taipei. I can barely wait to take my shoes off and throw them on the airport security conveyer belt, and yell, “So long, Sucker!” to my regular life in Vancouver.
Last time we flew with Joshua, he was just shy of 5 months old. He sat in our laps, cuddled, drank milk, played with toys, cried for a few minutes, and slept. This time he’ll be 17 months old. I have no idea what to expect. I’m bringing a cooler full of food, drinks, snacks, and everything I can think of to distract him–crayons, coloring book, iPod, iPad, and toys. We’ll just have to wait and see how it goes!
Thank you for your patience with my absence. I promise things will get a little more exciting here after this!
