Happy New Years Day, 2017

We have finally approached the new year today. So many things happened for 2016 which makes me so happy to leave it behind. The death of my favorite aunt in August, followed by one of older sister’s death in September, took a tremendous toll on me spiritually and personally. It made Thanksgiving , Christmas and this New Years hard to get through. So, now we are in 2017. With the start of Trump administration at the end of the month, all we can do is pray for everyone that we make it through this period. I hate politics so I won’t dwell too much on it other than to hope that we don’t suffer the idiocy of an incompetent President and that he truly leads this country with respect and maintain the world comraderie that we have gained over the last year. What we don’t want is another stupid war run by stupid men that don’t/won’t sacrifice their own sons to fight. I don’t want to see Russia from my house. I don’t want to see the poor suffering. And lastly, I don’t want to see the elderly and sick to be ignored and forgotten. That is my wish for the next 4 years.

But let’s change the subject to happier things. I really fell behind in my blog postings because of my sister’s illness. Still to come are several reviews for daily dramas that I completed last year (Tomorrow’s Victory, Heaven’s Promise, and Working Mom, Parenting Dad), major posting for the Chinese mega drama, Three Kingdoms, and finally my end of year posting for 2016 as well as the Fall 2016 Japanese drama season. 2017 promises to deliver more of the same. Hopefully, we will get some great Korean dramas this year so I can return to watching. Let’s wait and see!

I’m Checking Out For A Little Bit, Folks

cancer zodiac
Sometimes real life really does bring you down. For the next few weeks, I will not be blogging any new posts. Family issues of cancer has really gotten me down. Even my drama watching has slowed down except for dramas like Five Children, Heaven’s Promise, Legend of Nine Tail Foxes, and of course the weekly J-Dramas when they come available. However, I find it really difficult to blog so I’m putting all my posts on hold for a few weeks.

I do have quite a few posts in draft so don’t be surprised to see a flurry of activity in 2-3 weeks. Movie Monday will be on hold until mid June, 2016 and no other posts before then. I cannot stress the importance of self-checking, ladies! And gentlemen, encourage your mothers, wives, sisters, and girlfriends to also do them. Watching someone with Stage 4 breast cancer is the worse experience ever. It makes you sad, it makes it hard to function sometimes and definitely makes you consider “What Would You Do?”

What’s in the works?
Final Posting for Tomorrow Victory (2015)
Review of Thai Drama Series Mafia Luerd Mongkorn (all 5 dramas)
Drama Review of Three Kingdoms (2010)
Drama Review of Heaven’s Promise (2016) ~ The drama will probably be completed by then.
