I'm sharing miscellaneous photos. Here are a couple of pictures of Ashlyn's room- new curtains and curtain rods (Thanks, Wing!) and new bed.
Ashlyn's not sleeping in her new bed just yet. We wanted her to get used to seeing it before the transition. We were hoping to move her into her own room by her second birthday....but now it doesn't seem like it's going to happen...
...this morning Aric called me from work and dropped the big news on me: WE'RE MOVING....to Taiwan...and soon! He has a new project at work that requires us to move temporarily (for a couple of years). =O
and I spent a quiet day at home. With all our friends gone, the house
seems so quiet and lonely. *sniff* I had lot of mixed thoughts and feeling
swirling about....uncertainty, fear, happiness, nervousness, excitement,
Aric and I spent the evening discussing the move (trying to cover every
major and minor detail), and deeply pondering (each in silence). Aside
from missing our friends and family, Aric and I worried about different
things. For him, he worries about living in a new place. Since I'm not
new to that, my head was filled with concerns about our house, our cars,
our expenses, Ashlyn's schooling, how life will be like out there...including
health insurance, doctors, dentists, transportation, etc...
On a brighter note, I heard the company will be providing housing in a luxe apartment with all the ammenities. *semi-smile*
Ooops, I forgot to mention that Sarah and Bett dyed my hair over the weekend. The color is Preference Professional's HOT RED. It's not as bright as Sarah's red tips...it's deeper and more subtle. We dyed the mid to lower half of my hair and kept the front and crown my natural hair color. It was a two step process, bleach then dye. It took a long time, but well worth it. It's so cool! I love it! =D
Okay...I'm going to bed early. I have a little headache and feeling quite overwhelmed. G'Nite!
