I did not set my New Year’s resolution because I knew I wouldn’t be able to live up to it. I am already failing at exercising. It is too damn cold outside for jogging or walking. I have not been able to control my eating habit. Other than beef, which gives me serious gout attack, I have been eating pretty much anything that suits my taste. I drink wine almost everyday. Beer and har liquor are on special occasions. As long as I stay off beef, my gout is under control. I am still not getting full eight hours of sleep. I still want my own time to read. I need to make that change as well.
On the positive side, I spend tons of time with my sons. We played in the snow and Monopoly. iPads are still allowed on weekends. They got me into Beyblade. It is so much fun and competitive. I am so glad that my current job allows me the time to be with them. I sympathize parents who have to work faraway and only get to see their kids on the weekends. I don’t think I can do that. They are changing almost everyday. Our little Vương is three months now and he is different everyday. His movements, his smiles, his stares, his rollovers, his lovely cheeks, I am so blessed to witness everyday. Xuân’s verbal skills, Đán’s reading improvements, and Đạo’s creative thinking, I am so glad to be there with them even though at times I wish I can get a break.
My wife and I are on great term. She is still amazing (at everything). We worked out our differences. We talked more and argued less. For the most part, we love each other deeply (at least from my part) and we know we have tons of work ahead of us with four active boys. I don’t think life can get any better than this. So 2019 started out good even though I have not done anything to improve my damn self.
