When I was little, my favorite thing was to climb guava trees. I am currently living in Taiwan, grew up as an MK in Cameroon, lived in Minnesota, Thailand, Seattle, and Hungary briefly. While I am obviously no longer a “kid”, when I think about what defines me as a person I fall back to TCK/MK. An adult lost between cultures and creating one with my husband and children.
My husband has struggled with health issues for several years, and to help keep it in check I cook gluten free, meat free (except for fish), and dairy free. I am well on my way to egg free as well, but that is still a work in progress.
I enjoy finding crafts or projects to work on and waste hours online while the kids nap looking at one project or another that would organise or improve my house.
I am mom to 2 small children:姐姐 a 4 year old girl, and 弟弟 a 2 year old boy. I have high hopes of home schooling them while they attend Chinese school part time. We’ll see how it goes.
Have you seen Firefly? I’m doing my own Chinese interjections here – not swear words, just common place ones (how cute! really?? Let me see…)
PS -I know, the picture on the header is not a guava tree… but there aren’t any to climb here 😦
