Burn Baby Burn

Well, I had a really nice birthday party at Soo WHO (a few days before my birthday).

I wore my new red dress.

From left to right: Beth (she's a teacher, from London), Me, Sujoy, Thomas (our friend and business partner), Anjoli is in front.

Unfortunately, I spaced while making fish sticks for Anjoli the next night- I filled a cast iron skillet with oil, cracked the gas then walked away to do something...then forgot about the oil until I smelled it. The rest is history. I don't even want to rehash it because I am only now over the trauma! (The curtains went up in was nasty). I put it out with an oven mitt!

I got a third degree burn on my right arm - along with other 2nd degree burns. The third degree burn got infected, so I had to go on 2 types of antibiotics to get rid of the infection.
The local doc I went to isn't so great, so I am going to a better one tomorrow!

A very sweet friend here in Taiwan is helping me find a healthy puppy. Sujoy caved and said he'd buy me one for my birthday! I am hoping for a Teacup Toy Poodle.
They are the cutest dogs on earth.
I would love a Golden Retriever, but we just don't have the space for one I would feel so badly for the pooch in THIS kind of heat/humidity. That's cruelty to animals, fer sure.

Anjoli is loving middle school at TAS. I hardly ever see her. She's at the movies now with some friends. Miss Independent...that's Anju.

I am going stir crazy...but I really don't want to go out until my burn has healed. It may be another week! Let's see what the doc says.

Hope you are all well.

Lots of love,
