I had a hard weekend. A very exhausting, soul-wrenching weekend that has left me entering my workweek depleted of energy and just… exhausted. I was debating whether to explain everything that happened, and decided that I’m working to move past it and move forward, so I’m not going to make my heart and brain rehash it all. I have a busy couple weeks coming up, and I need all the energy I can get.

We’re leaving the first week of March. That leaves us with 2-3 weeks to get everything washed, packed or sorted, brought to Goodwill or tossed, etc. We have last minute appointments to see to, people to see one last time, bills to pay, accounts to close, etc. Amy’s brain is definitely on overdrive!!

Today I’m working a 10 hour day at the office, and then going home and doing some packing. We’re also going to file our taxes tonight, if we can access Husband’s online (it never came in the mail due to an address issue, and he’s locked out of his online account… because I put in the wrong password too many times!). Lucky us, we need to go get them done for an exhorbitant amount because we need our refund back within the next 1.5 weeks. So we’ll be throwing money away just to get it quick. Ah, the price of convenience.

Husband is done with his evening job, which means there will be a lot of together time. I’m hoping this will prove to be a good thing, as we get ready for the trip, and that it won’t cause more tension. We are both at the end of our rope, and just want to have everything here done so that we can leave. I can’t BELIEVE how much there is to DO when you leave the country!!

Also – after thinking on this awhile, I’ve decided that I am not going to post a link to our China blog on this website. This blog has some really personal, sensitive info that I don’t want all of my family and friends reading, so they mustn’t stumble across it. Also, I think I’d like to keep my public life public, and my secret chubby blog life secret. If blogspot is accessible in China, I will certainly still be updating with Chinese food, experiences, etc!

Of couse – there are a couple exceptions to that rule. I know of a couple people from here I’ll be giving it to. And if you’ve been faithfully lurking here since the beginning (I don’t think there ARE any of those… but who knows) and have just been DYING to read it, email me at I might make an exception. But no promises *wink*

Amy Jo, don't forget to take my address with you when you leave! I will keep checking this blog, but I'm afraid I won't hear from you any time soon! Good luck and bon voyage and all that stuff!
