Back to school for the kiddos.
Back to normal for me: currently focussing on daily battle to stay connected to the internet more than 2.5 min at a time, plead with the VPN to please connect during those 2.5 min. (China is mad at the big google family apparently right now it seems), realizing that 2.5 min is not a lot of time to download, read and answer all those need-to-be-taken-care-of-right-away emails.
Having a Pity Party of One (aka China Moment) at the local coffee shop.
Relax, Breath, Repeat.
