Oh… I know.. I know…. I have been missing for like .. ever..… I have no excuses except for busy life, work and lazy.  In  China life moves so fast .. that next thing you know.. it has been 3 months….  many things have happened.. I do not even know where to begin….

We had the big flood of 2013…. Yuyao the city that I lived in for the last five years was literally  underwater… many people were stuck in their homes for days at a time without food or water.  Houses and cars were destroyed… and the government didn’t come and help them… China‘s true survival of the fittest.  My husband was trapped for three days there but he is okay now.. that was about a month ago…. after the flood cleared the rioting started…. of course they were pisses about not getting any help…. and declared themselves their own country…. (kind of funny…. ) of course the government shut that down within a day.

Yuyao Great flood

I have been keeping in touch with American women all around China that have moved here recently… we have started a little wechat group so we can be there for each other and help each other through the hardships and happy times and of course dating advice.

We have laughed and cried and cheered each other in this little group and I think it helps a lot to know there is someone else in the huge country that knows what your going thru.

My job is great… has ups and downs like any place.. but I think i have adjusted well to the changes that have happened in my life.  I have experienced and met a lot of people in the last few months to give me fuel to start updating you guys.

but… I have to agree with something I read in a blog… a few weeks ago…. when you first come to china .. you want to write everyday…. and then after you have been here a year or so…. you take photos of everything and experience everything… but after you have been here as long as I have… 6 years.. now… whew…. things start looking normal…. so I have to go out of my way to experience new things.  Or my blog will be just be stale… boring day-to-day stuff.

I have met some people and adjusted to my new surroundings and now I am back on track.   I am back people… and I boy do I have some things to tell you…..

Until next time…..
