Still writing

On the home stretch. It's a lot tougher than I thought it would be. After these books are done, I'm going to make July a pretty low-key month.

Wednesday May 14th was our 3rd wedding anniversary. Originally, we were going to go to Children's Grand Park, where we got married, but the park was recently closed down due to a bird flu outbreak. Sejin said it was actually open on our anniversary, but most people were staying away, naturally. That kind of put a damper on things....

So, we decided to go somewhere we'd never been before, so we went to the 63 Building, the tallest building in Korea. We saw a pretty cool aquarium in the basement and then rode up to the 61st floor to the observation deck which offered some pretty good views of Seoul. Finally, we had lunch at "Walking on the Cloud" restaurant on the 60th floor. Decent food and a great view. It was a nice evening.
Last week I received a package from my Ravelry Pen Pal group swap partner. I was very excited to receive it so soon, all the way from California. biotechgrrl sent me 4 balls of creamy bamboo yarn, and a ball of beautiful purple yarn, of a luxury brand I've never tried before. Also, a journal and note cards which say "Don't count the days. Make the days count." Always something very important to keep in mind! Looking forward to having time to knit up that yarn! Luckily, biotechgrrl received my package, which I was relieved to hear!
I guess the biggest news as of late: We went to the hospital today and had a really good experience. The doctor was very nice AND speaks fluent English. The baby measures where it's supposed to, at 1.2 cm, and the heart was beating very nicely.
