Where have you been all my life?

So, not quite 3 months since my last post--not too bad. I just needed to take a break for a while; writer's block, if you will. Anyway, I've decided that it's long past time for me to write something so here I am at 2:17am, ready to go! Haaaaahahahaha...okay.

Let's see, where were we? Oh yes, April 30 was my last "semi" post, but nothing substantial occurred until June 10 when we went to Beijing. That city is AMAZING. There's so much rich history and culture; we already decided that we must go back some day with our kids and their grandparents. I know you probably already saw all the pictures I put on Facebook, but they don't really even begin to describe how cool that place is. We went with a tour group from, and that was totally worth it as well. It's a little difficult to get to all the places easily, so it definitely helped having our own van driving us everywhere.

On the morning of our flight back to Korea, I was the unfortunate victim of what I now have dubbed the Great Bowelpocalypse of 2010. I woke up that morning practically running to the toilet where all hell proceeded to break loose (both figuratively AND literally). I had 2 more episodes before we even got on the plane. I think after that point I was so traumatized by memories of the Great Bowelpocalypse of 2007 (or, "The Honeymoon that Wasn't") that I was able to freeze my bowels into submission, because I did not have anymore problems until after the plane and bus ride to Daegu (a total of about 8 hours). During the 5-minute taxi ride from the bus station to our apartment, I was clenching so hard that I was practically levitating off the seat. The Great Bowelpocalypse of 2010 finally came to an end 2 days later (although to be honest, things really haven't worked right since then).

In the month or so since our Beijing trip, things have been pretty much standard. Work, sleep, hang out on the weekends. Oh, we got a cleaning lady. I do okay on my own, but I really hate dusting and vacuuming and mopping. So twice a month she comes and dusts and vacuums in all the little nooks and crannies and corners that I normally skip over. Our apartment gets so dusty, I just gave up trying to keep up with it. I blame it on the lack of central air (which would normally filter all the dust and crap out of the air). Next time she comes I'll try to take a picture so you can meet our adjumma (Korean word for older married woman). I have no idea what her name is, I just call her "adjumma".

The next couple of months should be a little more exciting. Josh and Kate will be here in August, then my bestest friend is coming in September for a couple of weeks, and right after that we're off to Singapore and Malaysia. I can't believe how quickly this year is passing!

Until next time...
