It's been a while since I've caught up on the blogging. What can I say, we've been a little bit busy :)
Last weekend was my birthday 9-9. I'm a whopping 42 years old now. We went to my favorite restaurant, F. McLintocks for dinner with Stef and Nacho, then hit Shell Beach and Pismo Beach, and then went miniature golfing at Boomers. Stefanie made me walk into a tattoo parlor in Pismo...why? I have no idea. I HATE needles and I hate pain - so I already know that would get one dot on me and scream like a baby and be all done so why even try, right? We walked in, we walked right out... when will my daughter learn?
Young Lee has been adjusting to life in the USA. He continues to spend a LOT of time in his bedroom either doing his homework or watching Chinese videos on his computer. I still don't really like the whole idea of him being a recluse in his room but I've kinda decided not to fight that battle right now.
Young went to his first high school dance. He was there for about an hour before he called to go home. When I asked what he thought about the dance he just said "American girls are too much!".
PAJAMA UPDATE: So..... Young Lee has stopped wearing his silk pajamas outside to play basketball! HOORAY! I know some of you are sad......get over it.... I'm happy! Although he does change into the pajamas often at like 3pm, they are worn in the house only. I wish he had blue ones instead of pink ones but whatever....
This week was a little crazy for me. I had a booster board meeting on Monday night, then back to school night on Wednesday, and another meeting at the school yesterday. What can I say, I LOVE St. Joseph High School :)
This weekend Young Lee and the other Chinese students are off on a trip to San Francisco. I'm so excited for him! And he finally accepted the fact that when I say "it gets cold" that he needs to dress warm. He even packed a jacket and long pants! I tried to help him pack but he said he could handle it so I made my motherly suggestions and hopefully he followed them. I really have no idea if he understands most of what I say. I think he kind of catches every few words and then guesses what I'm saying and just nods his head.
We have a busy weekend planned with a friend coming from Indiana tomorrow morning. We are going to pick her up in Santa Barbara and then head down to Camarillo to BBQ with the family. We are usually so busy on the weekends and whenever we have a free weekend I like to go down to Camarillo and hang with the fam.
Drew is getting his senior pictures taken on Sunday. I can't quite wrap my head around the fact that my baby boy is a senior and I'm a little sad about it really. It seems like I was just getting my own senior pictures taken! Hard to believe it's been so long.
I have off work most of next week to hang out and have a little "stay-cation" with my friend. I'm sure I will have lots of fun stories and pictures to post so stay tuned!
