These.shows.are.great! They are all so well produced and were thrilled to have found that they have Mandarin audio. We may or may not have already binged all of them.
So “Texpats” was taken. I wasn’t about to dish out like $3K to buy it when I was browsing domain names. I don’t have to explain that Texpats comes from Texas + Expats, right? But if I did, it’s totally my bad for not filling you in and now you know.Continue reading “Trilingual Texpatsy Kinda Day”
anxiety ridden much anticipated international moving day came and went. Besides the truck dying on the highway entrance ramp hundreds of feet in the air on the road to the airport and our motion sick baby girl, the rest of the day went on without a hitch! YAY!
So quite a while ago, Annuar submitted his resume with the Association of American Schools in South America. We had casually discussed how it would be pretty cool if the kids learned Spanish in an actual Spanish-speaking country.Continue reading “Getting you up to speed”
You were our first. For this we will always remember you with fondness and appreciation. I’ll admit that I took you for granted over the recent years. Life got busier and you were pretty low maintenance. You were important to us, yet I know I didn’t say enough words of gratitude about you. You had quirks and started getting sloppy with your presentation.Continue reading “The first goodbye”
Red envelopes, longevity foods, lanterns, firecrackers, festivals, boisterous parades, and lion dances! This year the Lunar New Year lands on Tuesday, February 5th (although, different countries in Asia may celebrate the days a little differently). It’s basically a celebration of lights, sound, the color red, and food! Several prominent venues in DFW are celebrating the Lunar New Year with festivals honoring the holiday.Continue reading “DFW LNY 2019 Festivals”
On Friday night I mysteriously lost my voice. Well, at the time it was a bizarre mystery to me but I have since realized that the voice loss (and runny nose) was from an allergic reaction to the dust from the remodeling being done at my work. I digress.Continue reading “Marie Kondo-san”
A couple of months ago, when Annuar was invited to apply for the position, I didn’t even know how to begin to pray. I wanted a change in our lives, but relocating to another country wasn’t your average change (at least not for us newbie expats to be). I streamed hymns on SoundCloud and YouTube a lot, and that was a way for my spirit to be primed and encouraged. All I knew to do was to enjoy the Lord in the small things and try not to overthink.Continue reading “I take Thy promise”
Meimei woke up crying in the middle of the night again. After settling her down, I wasn’t able to fall back asleep. I snapped into panic mode. PANIC. I have so much clutter. Kinda hoard when it comes to certain items, not gonna lie. Like craft supplies. I have so many craft supplies. I love crafting. I love the idea of crafting. I want to have all materials before me as inspiration strikes. How am I going to get rid of all of our junk in time to get the house ready to sell?!?? Can a reality TV show adopt our case, send a crew to help me out here?!?? We would seriously be perfect candidates.Continue reading “O Soul”
I woke up from Meimei crying around 3:00 am and wasn’t able to go back to sleep. My heart skipped a beat and my mind started racing. “Did that really happen?Continue reading “A surprising close to 2018”
