Comments in Chinese

Sooooo, apparently I have someone in China that can get through the whole "must be registered to leave comments" deal. I so rarely get comments *yes people this means you* I know you are reading but you all SELDOM comment. I'm just saying...Oops-sorry, lost track of my point. Anyway as I was saying, I so rarely get comments that I get a little shaky and excited when I actually see that someone has actually taken the time to comment. Imagine my disappointment when the comment I see is half written in Chinese and half in English. From the English words I could tell that it wasn't such a nice comment. My last post got another comment-this time all in Chinese so I have no idea what it says but I deleted it just in case it was in the not so nice category again. Sigh.

I Won't Be Asking X*Boy To Decorate A Room...

We have a routine down during the week where McGyver, X*boy and I take turns going in to the office late. This allows us to get Dreamsicle where she needs to go for the day (either day care or pre school) Yesterday was X*Boy's turn to take her to school. I always set her clothes out the night before so that I know that she matches. When class is over for the day, all of the people picking their kids up kind of loiter in the hallway just outside the classroom. Imagine my shock when Dreamsicle came around the corner dressed in a cute little bright red paisley top and a pair of pastel horizontal striped leggings, one size too small! Apparently there was a mishap in the morning involving chocolate milk and the solid red yoga pants that she was supposed to wear so between the two of them, they thought the pants they chose were "perfect" for the top. Note to self from now on...always have an alternative outfit laying out just in case...

Goodbye 2009!

As far as the McGyver family is concerned, 2009 could not be over soon enough. For a year that began with much promise, it ended up being one of the biggest ickfests we have ever experienced. Thankfully with each new day comes a new opportunity-the same holds true for each new year. We start 2010 off with hope in our hearts and our eyes looking towards the future.
