While I love my friend the VPN- it is not a perfect tool. Frustration with connectivity problems, combined with insane life change has kept me from blogging for close to 4 months. I am up and running here and I make no lofty promises. Picasa web albums doesn't work well with the VPN, so I haven't been able to access my albums. I don't even remember what pictures I posted last.

We were really hopeful that the mainland's Internet blocking would ease up after the big October holiday, but there are no signs that this will happen. So for now, I will make the best out of what I have.

The last several months have been a blur of activity. We moved to the other side of Shanghai, went back to the US, and had family in town for the last two weeks. Oh, then there's the fact that I have made it through the first trimester of my pregnancy. I am currently 16 weeks pregnant with twins! Pretty crazy changes ahead. I have had a relatively easy pregnancy thus far. Aside from the impending mass of belly that I expect to have, all is going well.

Transition seems to be the theme in life for me and Phil. I'm hoping to take the next couple of weeks to enjoy the fall weather, get caught up, and carve out a little sense of grounding.
