Almost a year

The past year has gone by so quickly, and I haven't made a post on this blog all that time. I've just been letting my wife keep the site updated since we got married. I didn't even write a post about my own wedding, or upload any of the pictures. I'm sure you've all read my wife's post about it already though, so I won't bore you too much. I will try to upload some pictures though. Shaoling looked beautiful and I had such a big smile on my face that my cheeks were sore for days after the wedding. Despite the typhoon (the only one that hit Taiwan the whole year), we had many friends and family come. I even had 10 people from my family who traveled all the way from New Mexico and Texas for the occasion. I'm still amazed so many were able to make it. At first we were planning to have a second wedding ceremony or reception in the US but we decided against it later. We'd already been married for 9 months when we moved back to the US, and if we had a second ceremony, we'd have to try to get Shaoling's family over here too which is even more difficult to arrange due to the need for visas. I hope they'll be able to visit us sometime though. All of our friends are free to visit us here in Katy anytime though. We should be getting our sofa and loveseat delivered soon, but until then we have some uncomfortable wooden chairs. If you need our address/phone number just shoot one of us an email. I've gone back to working at my former company in Houston. This time I had a new project to work on as soon as I arrived, and I'm really enjoying it so far. We've been attending Chinese Baptist Church and we both like it. It has both English and Chinese worship services/Sunday School. We're not sure what we want to do just yet, but I think we'll start splitting up and going to different services/classes most days. I really hope Shaoling is able to make new friends here quickly. In Taiwan, she loved going out and doing things with her friends. I'm afraid she'll be bored here during the day. I'll have to bring my pickup here from Clovis sometime so that we'll have two vehicles to use. It doesn't matter so much right now, because Shaoling doesn't have a driver's license yet. I'll have to go through all the hassle of renewing the expired registration though. I think I'll just rent one of those tow dollies from U-Haul the next time we drive to my parent's home. Well I guess I should hit the hay. It's getting late and want to mow the lawn in the morning before it gets to hot. It's supposed to get up to 107 tomorrow! Goodnight everyone.
