I haven't written for a while. I know I don't have many readers anyway, so I have low motivation. I haven't had too much time to really work on my blog and make it pretty, etc. I also hate that "Mommy blogging" has taken over blogging. Blogging has become a huge "Look how much better of a mother and wife I am than YOU!" thing. Since I think that is boring, I guess I won't earn followers in my demographic. I HAVE thought about doing a parody of one though.
I just haven't had time since our move to our new house. Moving is hell! I remember the old days of borrowing my parents' van to move my entire apartment to another. Moving was so easy back then. Now with four kids moving is a huge hassle. I hope we don't have to do it again for a while.
I also have been dealing with a lot of pain. I have a complex ovarian cyst that hurts so bad I feel like I am giving birth. Because of the pain I am limited on what I can do. I feel sick and nauseous everyday, all day. I go back to the doctor next week for some more tests. The doctors hope it will go away on its own. I still worry and panic about it. Not knowing what is wrong is what is making this difficult.
When I have free time I relax by researching genealogy and watching Korean dramas. I use dramafever.com where they subtitle the K-dramas in English. Warning: Korean dramas are highly addictive!!! Just when you think things are cheesy or too slow, they throw in a new twist. I think American soap operas have forgotten how to do drama effectively. In American soaps, characters jump into bed by the second episode whereas in Korean dramas the couple won't even kiss until the 9th or 10th. It is mindless entertainment, but a fun way to forget pain. I also have great memories of living in Korea. Since I lived in an upper class household, I lived the lifestyle of many of the main characters and ate in the same restaurants, shopped in the same stores. (I was "Gangnam style" 12 years before that song came out!) I was in a relationship, yes, but for some reason I don't remember him much. I just remember the food, cafes, department stores, and the wonderful campus of Yonsei University. Most of all, I remember being young! Only 21 years old! I was skinny in Korea! That is an amazing feat!
Well, that is my life now.
