Good grief, this is probably the longest I've gone without blogging. I apologize for my absence and I'm assuming that you have all missed me. (Just assuming) I've finally sort of caught up with everyone else's blog today, so I figured that I should at least post something new myself. My sweet hubby and I are well and alive. The business has been an up-and-down ride, but what business isn't? I'm learning to take each day at a time and not stress about the day after. Knowing myself, I don't usually handle stress really well, so this has been very challenging and eye-opening. Regardless, God is always good and He's never failed to provide, and for that, we're very thankful.

In about less than 3 weeks' time, my beloved parents from Malaysia will be here in Dallas. We've been getting ready physically and emotionally for their visit. I personally have been more anxious lately (and having a tough time falling asleep at night due to my racing thoughts), but it's probably really because I want them to get here NOW. It's been too long and I'm ready to see them!

Oh, and can someone tell me why in the world it's so stinking hot outside?! I know we're in Texas and this should be considered normal, but the entire country is also going through this unusual heatwave. And the weather people predicted rain this morning, but did it? NOPE! This heat is starting to be rather aggravating. There goes my summer aspiration to play more tennis...Anyway, we don't know how we would have survived another summer this year if we were still driving our poor Honda without A/C! Once again, thank YOU LORD for our new car.

I've spent most of today preparing a birthday cake for our young adults' birthday party tomorrow. I love cooking and can do it all day long, but baking is a threatening task for me and definitely not my forte in life. Needless to say, I didn't think it was going to be so complicating, at least judging by the recipe the first time. I hope it'll at least be presentable. :)

Until next time, hope all is well!

News Update

I'm realising that I'm blogging less and less these days. Not sure if this is a good or bad thing still.

Our work is going well, busy and constantly on the go. That's what occupies us on most days, but it's also nice to be able to just go home or take time off whenever we want to. One of the many joys of being self-employed and having your own business. :)

We had a long 4th of July break. Spent it with my brother Aaron and sister-in-law Liz in Abilene. It was probably one of our best times there, just relaxing and catching up with family. Aaron set up a ghetto badminton court in their backyard with a cheap set of badminton gear from K-Mart. We made-do and had such a blast playing badminton the entire time we were there. We wore ourselves out and returned home with sore muscles. Needless to say, Josue is hooked on yet another new sport!

Watched the 2nd sequel of the "Pirates of the Carribean" last night. Great effects and all, but not enough for me to want to brag about it. I'm still sitting on this one. Now, "Nacho Libre" is a whole different story....:)

MySpace is now very addicting--thanks mainly to the kids from our church's youth group with whom I went to New Orleans. Anyone else?

Summer must be the perfect season to get pregnant. Once again, people around us--our friends, are popping out kids like there's no tomorrow. A colleague at work is pregnant (and I get to witness her constant morning sickness daily, among other things), and yesterday found out that yet another close friend who recently got married is now pregnant too! And yes, people keep asking us about when we're going to have ours. Stop asking already! It's not going to happen anytime soon, or maybe never! I'm tired of repeating myself...

In less than a month's time, my parents will be here. In a way, Josue and I are not ready for them to come (still need to save up and such). But emotionally, I'm SO ready for them. I've missed them terribly and it's definitely time for a reunion. I'm very excited and can't wait for many of you to meet them too(if you haven't already)!
