I missed a giveaway…Crap! My asian mom lives a state away, and we both live such busy lives, it’s hard to see one another. I’m happy for you that your folks will be closer. Enjoy them.

As we all get a little older, it’s nice to have family so near (and the free food and babysitting is a plus).

Remember that Asian mothers are always right and children need to listen. At least that’s what my Korean mother says – my response “Yes mother”!!!

When my dad passed away, I asked my mom to live with us. Now we have free babysitting and everything! Except good cooking. Her cooking sucks. She overcooks stir-fries and it’s touch-and-go whether her Shake’n Bake will turn out okay. When all the other mothers were learning how to cook and sew, she was busy with a career as a professional, high-end hair-stylist. At least I had good hair as a child. Yes, there are trying times, but I think we did a good thing in the end. My only advice if anyone has to do this: sell two homes and get a huge one in turn so everyone has plenty of room to hide.

We can hardly spend three days in the same house without getting into skirmishes about the way I do laundry.

According to my awesome computer engineer husband, he says that you can use a code with Microsoft Powerpoint or Excel to randomly generate numbers. If you like, I could have him pass the code along. =D

And congrats to the winners!

LOVE MY MOM. Dad, he’s like a stubborn little kid. I just dropped my parents off at the airport an hour ago. They were here for a week. My goodness, my mother was the peacemaker when my husband or kid was driving me batty! While my mom loves it out here, she prefers CA weather, and the close proximity of Asian markets. I missed out on your knife giveaway, but I have to share something else. My darling smart, very happily married brother brought me a lovely 7″ Global cook’s knife, and the water sharpener too! My hostess gift for opening my house for Thanksgiving. We had so much fun and food, I want to do it again next year. I wonder if I keep this up, he’ll get me the full complete set of knives. Hmmm, family gathering every holiday for 2 years ought to do it. I even got to make jook from the 19.5lb turkey carcass. Even though I enjoyed my mom’s visit immensely, I was sneaking sips of the single malt scotch my brother gave my husband. Wow that stuff was smooth.

I can say this because I become one when I’m around my mom or in an Asian market where I’m being pushed or shoved because someone’s trying to get in front of me.

I think we’re all genetically programmed to be at FULL VOLUME when angry!

I love my parents, but it would be my worst nightmare to have my mother in the same state, let alone within 5 miles. Truthfully, though, it would probably be hers, too.

How nice that your parents are moving closer. I too am very close to my mom although she drives me crazy sometimes and Im sure vice versa! I remember when i was still living with my parents, we would talk in the morning (mostly abt my brothers) just before I left for work. Even now, she would call me everytime she has something to complain about them! lol.
