Oh, Happy Halloween to you all. IT was one of favorite holidays for REgina, since she could dress up and act all silly :)
Lot of time has passed since my last post. I want to thank you all who thought about us, and sent us notes and emails telling us that they think about Regina and us:) Thank you :) We appreciate it.
..We still live in Hangzhou and are blessed with the worst landlord there is. We think about moving as soon as possible, but since our contract ends in June I believe, we are stuck here and have to make it work. Our apartment does not have central heating, and I am already scared about winter. Night are getting cooler and cooler, and with no time I have to turn on our tiny heater box that is on the wall. And drink lot of lemon, ginger tea with touch of honey .
I have to stop complaining. My life is fabulous. I get to experience world and great fantastic memories with loved ones, but I still find something to complain about. There is always something that bugs me, and I am working hard on me to make me better. I don't know if I made any progress , but I feel like one step at a time, and one day I will find me.:).
Gabriel is doing Great in his new school. China has made him more independent, and he loves it . In school he is doing much better than last year. he is MATH genius and very proud of it :) HE also takes tennis lessons, and is very proud of what he as accomplished within past couple of months. For a while he wanted to be President of United States of America, but he decided that it is not such a great idea, since it seems like lot of work. haha.
Nick and I...
It's complicated, we are working on our relationship and it is hard. Whoever said marriage is easy never most likely tried to work on it. Sometimes it looks like we made progress and sometimes we stumble because I can't keep my eyes half shut.. We have discussed divorce, many times and who knows what next year brings. Right now we are trying to pick up the pieces, not put a blame on each other for our own failures and see where next year takes us. We are 2 very different people with same goal..happiness and we are trying to figure out how to get there ..
We also travel a lot here in Asia. This year we visited Taipei for few days because Nick had to attend conference there. We also spend amazing week in Philippines. I would love to go back there and soak in warm , salty blue water. Stare at blue sky and forget that there is real world somewhere....
I also want to start writing little bit more. I lost it for a while. Nothing made sense and I want things start making sense again. :)
The other day I was watching Oprah Lifeclass and in the end of the show She tea poem by Derek Walcott. It was exactly what I needed to start look even more into me. :)
I hope you all are having an amazing year, and don't let fear paralyze you.
