I've been contemplating starting a blog for awhile and have finally found the motivation. At least I think so. I hope that this will help me keep in touch with family and friends more effectively. I also have hopes of sharing all of the recipes that I've learned from my husband, mother-in-law, and sister-in-law, as well as what life is like as the only resident foreigner in a small (by Chinese standards) Chinese town.
Up until yesterday there were two foreigners here. My good friend (and former roomie) has returned to the US for a few weeks and in the fall is moving to Beijing for a year. The school she (and I) used to teach at decided they didn't want anymore foreign teachers, at least for now. My school has said they will rehire me, but they can't seem to figure out how to fill out the new online forms! So maybe I won't have a job next year. I honestly wouldn't mind. However financially, it would be good to have one. We'll just have to wait and see.
