My niece joined the family on July 12th, 2010. This special young lady's mother is my younger sister, which in classic Chinese culture makes me her Jiu Jiu (舅舅) -- thus the title of this blog. Here I intend to semi-regularly post reflections, thoughts, stories, and assorted whathaveyous pertaining to our trip to China, adoption in general, and (mostly) watching my niece grow up. Since the web is a very public place, I will attempt to maintain my family's privacy while telling the story... but I invite you to follow the blog and come along for the adventure!

Holy Cow, I Was Nervous!

Okay, it's not about the Pipsqueak, but this post does have importance for the future of this blog.

After a period of increasingly weird (negative) behavior by my laptop -- some mentioned here, much not -- I finally got all the information I needed and wiped the beast clean.  I spent a chunk of yesterday and most of today re-installing, re-positioning, and re-creating what went away when I clicked that "Erase" button in Disk Utility (honestly one of the most nerve-wracking things I've done in a while) but as of right now, I only have a few more apps to re-install and everything's working better than I had hoped.

What this means is, after another day or two of tweaking & testing, I'll be able to get back to posting here on a more regular basis PLUS posting pictures again... So stay tuned, we're back on the air!
