Nark and I went home this weekend to surprise our mom for her birthday. My dad sneaked out of the house to get us, then we sneaked in, and my dad brought her downstairs.

I hadn’t seen her in at least 3 months (since she was in Taiwan for the past three months) and you could tell that she really wasn’t expecting us. It made me happy and sad at the same time, because our time together was so short.

I wish they were here. I want both–norcal and socal, but I know I can’t have both.

And meanwhile I am still stuck in limboland.
