My goal for this year is to get my house organized to prepare for Thanksgiving dinner. You may think that Thanksgiving is five months away. Well, I have to be mentally prepared for it. We may take a short trip next month. Then, I’ll spend a couple months with Mercy before and after the baby is born.
As far as my energy, I can only do a little bit of cleaning and organizing each day. Last time when I hosted a Thanksgiving dinner, it took me two months to prepare. There were twenty-two people came to dinner. This year may have more people coming. Mercy and Will are coming with their new baby! ♥♥♥
What is one thing you’re glad you tried but would never do again?
I’m glad that I tried to learn riding bicycle. Learn to ride bicycle as adult is not the same as learning as kids. After I fell several times, I decided to quit.
Did you choose your profession or did it choose you?
I was Director of Children’s Department in an organization in Hong Kong when I was twenty-six years old. Coming to U.S. as a student, I pretty much started my career all over again. I was glad to get into teaching in public school after graduation. My career goal was still in administration. After fourteen years of teaching, I was promoted to be district administrator. I did that for ten years before I retired. Yes, I enjoyed my educational profession as a teacher as well as administrator.
Have you ever gotten lost?
Oh yes, many times. I have a poor sense of direction. In Los Angeles, and Orange County areas, if I get lost, I could only know the north and south by identifying the mountains and ocean, but have no idea of directions of streets.
The first time I went to court for the custody case. I went to the wrong court. I was panic because if I was late, I would have lost the case by default, I wasn’t sure. I got back to my car and I saw a cop driving by. I asked for direction to the Orange County Superior Court. After he gave me the direction and saw the expression on my face. He said he would escort me there! Bless his heart! I got there on time!
