wow. It has been a really long time, long enough for the new year to have arrived...oh seven was an interesting and long year. Like every year I guess, full of highs and lows unfortunately the lows in our family were much lower this year.
Rob's step-father passed in August, succumbing to a battle with lung cancer. His family is doing well and I know they are probably all happy to have the bittersweet christmas season behind them. We shared a very keyed down celebration with them this year and I know new traditions will be formed in the coming years.
The family celebration with my family this year was also different, we celebrated at our house because my parents are in the process of renovating theirs. It was fun to play host and also was surprisingly relaxed. We made Chinese food instead of the traditional fare and it was SO delicious. Although, I don't think my sister or I will ever be undertaking home made moo shu pancakes again!
Rob and I took the logical next step after being married for amost 7 years....we got a dog. His name is Soda, hi.
Between school continually consuming more and more time and family being in the forefront my poor little blog has had no life :)
But one of my non-resolutions resolutions is to blog again because i love it.
So, Happy New Year, welcome 2008!!!!!
