    Busy, busy ladies. I plan to sleep as much as possible and sort through the clutter in my house, organize things and give/throw a bunch of stuff away. So, keep your eyes open for posts about stuff I'm giving away--should be a lot of it.

    All the best to SZJ with her upcoming c-section this week and to Cara with all the madness :)
    “Many women have described their experiences of childbirth as being associated with a
    spiritual uplifting, the power of which they have never previously been aware …
    To such a woman childbirth is a monument of joy within her memory.
    She turns to it in thought to seek again an ecstasy which passed too soon.”

    Hubby is flying out for business for the entire week, so me and the kids in the meantime will be meeting a lot of friends, going out to the park, Play town, Ocean Park, shopping and trying out new recipes.

    you are NUTS to go to OP during the holiday! you could not pay me to go there over that week! the # of mainland tourists there would make it anything but fun (for me)....you are one brave, patient (and a little crazy) lady! LOL!

    thanka: that nesting instinct has kicked in, has it?

    I was going to try Disney on one of the days but Cara's post has scared me a little! Also planning on doing a lot of spring cleaning because we are hoping to move soon so I want to clear the clutter before we do and hubby being off for a few days means he can entertain the kids while I am sorting everything!

    CNY is the most boring holiday ever. There is nothing to do other than going to visit friend and relative. You have to spend lot in gifts and lai si and get nothing in return. CNY is fun only for kids, and that only because of the sweets, snacks and lai si.

    My brother came to visit me 2 or 3 years ago during CNY and got so bored that he said not to come again during that holiday. Some big department stores, like WingOn for example, close for few days. Some close for a week... Thre is usually nothing interesting on the TV, as all the regural programs get preempted. And going to parks would be fun if it weren't usually cold and windy outside!
