To-day really is Chinese New Years!

Monday, January 23, 2012

Gung Hei Fat Choi!-----
This is ""really""---- Chinese New Years!---
Here I thought it was yesterday--- I do that all the time--I mean, I get the wrong date on lotza stuff--
I've been known to tell people that I'm older than I really am--I don't mean to do that--It helps though, in a way, as when my Birthday comes, my age doesn't seem as bad---I've been telling people all along I was that age ----LOL

I remember taking #4 son to start Kindergarden, and when asked when he was born, I told the secretary he was born in September--
""What date in September?" she asked---- ""What year"?
I finally came up with the year, by counting back, from #1 son, #2 son, #3 son, #1 Daughter---- and figured out his year of birth--but--- the date of the month, --bamfoozled me--
"Well, he was born in September"", I said---- ""Isn't that good enough"?---I asked this very efficient, secretary---I knew by the look on her face, and her comment of, ""Ms--You don't know when this child was born"?--that I was not scoring any points in her books, as a Mom!

What this very organized lady didn't know, was that the child I was registering, to begin school in the fall, was the last of 5 children--that I was VERY happy to get him into school--that he was the right age--Did it really matter what the day he was born on-, was??---

So, to everyone out there--- to-day REALLY , is Chinese New Year!
Sow Chien How---That means, ""Good Morning""--in Chinese-
Hen Gow-- means, "'Nice To Meet you""--

Anyway-----Enjoy this day--Freezing rain here! ---I have a Piano lesson at noon to-day.
Eat healthy---and exercise-y'all!

    Sow Chien How to you too, Lynda! Have to laugh. My DH is Jewish. I am forever the queen of inadvertently serving a pork dish on a Jewish holiday. **SIGH** After 23 yrs. he's used to it. Besides, as I tell him, "Well, you didn't remind me!" I'm not Jewish, so I haven't a clue. LOL

    My Mom is forever forgetting my youngest brother's birthday. She knows it was in January . . . that's it! I always tease here . . . "Well, weren't you THERE!?!" Oh well, some things just never change. That's alright. That secretary sounds like she is BO'd (no . . . not stinky . . . born organized). God bless those who are. I am NOT! LOLOL
