Ok welcome to a whole new scattered type of writing from Melissa. As if it couldn't get any worse, or convoluted. OH YES IT CAN, my sweet sweet friends. It can get much more worser!
I'm on a whole new level of scattered and I'm managing to get NOTHING done in the process! Trying to schedule/juggle photos and photo taking. Trying clean The Pit of Despair, aka my garage, which has been a hell hole of garbage since we moved into our house 6 years ago. And I had dairy about 4 or 5 times last week (i'm allergic to dairy) and now my skin looks like someone threw up on it. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But did I also mention that it's Harvest Moon Festival time? Or Mid-Autumn Festival? (it's not even autumn SO HOW CAN IT BE MID-AUTUMN??? It's like the Swedes with their Midsummer biz! What the what? Someone needs to explain these holidays to me, for the love of all that's holy.)
So anyway, we spent the weekend, not cleaning out closets like I wanted to, but first we went to have dim sum downtown (Julia wasn't even there, she went with her g-ma to go to a Native American Salmon festival. SO MANY FESTIVALS.), that was me, and Andrew and our pal Carl, who got married in this wedding, but you need more than 3 peeps to eat dim sum because otherwise it's too much food.
Then the next day we took Julia to a Japanese autumn festival we attended 2 years ago, and that was underwhelming. They just didn't have that much stuff going on. But the kimonos were INCREDIBLE and every time we go, Julia wants to know why she doesn't have one, and I'm like, I don't know where people get these things, and oh well.
But we saw Hello Kitty and that made everything ok. As it so often does.
I have a Chinese holiday book to show this week as well, except the festival we went to was Japanese, and I'm wondering if they are celebrating the same festival? And one festival apparently happened in August and this one, the actual day is Sept 19th I think, but some lady said that the Moon festival is happening right now, so who knows what's going on. I sure don't.
I feel totally stressed out. #toomanyfestivals
