I’m not feeling awesome guys. I don’t know what is happening with my body, but I’m feeling really, really low. I know I’ve mentioned that I struggle with anxiety before, but this depressed feeling is something new for me. I mean, I get it. It’s a chemical imbalance, or sometimes (potentially my case) situational, but it SUCKS. It feels awful. And I can tell myself “hey, this isn’t normal or right” but I also can’t make myself fix it. So that totally sucks. Thank goodness for my kids, who well sometimes obnoxious, are also a pure delight. They’ve both had new after school activities this week which have really grabbed their attention, and hearing about what they’re doing has really helped my mood.
I also met a new friend, who moved to Ann Arbor after we left and now is here! She taught me to make toast in my fish broiler!
;/..,,,,,,,,////So basically, she’s cool and a fricken genius. Of course, now the that the cat is out of the (bread) bag, the kids want toast all the time, and thusly I was left with no bread for toast today.
However, Rosie and I finally attempted cookies. I woke up from second nap today (this blue mood is real yo) and wanted chocolate chip cookies, SO BADLY. SO I caved and bought flour. I just randomly chose the one that had bread on it, because that was a baked good instead of shrimp which was the picture on the other bag.
AND THEY WORKED
And this little ball of fluff really helps keep me going.
Why yes, we let the bunny have free roam of our entire living room, so she can nap under the couch instead of napping in a cage, LIKE AN ANIMAL. I’m sure she and Sushi will get along great. Sushi also does not enjoy being an animal.
I feel like you should all see how well trained Baxter is.
*OK WordPress won’t upload the video tonight, but imagine me saying “GO HOME BAXTER! And her jumping up and running home on command.
I told Nathaniel that he bought the best bunny in the whole world Acause (one of Rosie’s adorable words) she is so well trained and he told me that eventually “anyone will bend to your will”. But he hasn’t yet. . . .. Do I keep trying?
Also for your viewing pleasure:
This weekend we have two parties which I’m looking forward to. In fact, on Sunday we have a party at one of Nathaniel’s Japanese coworkers, which is thrilling to me. I imagined that I would have to play a good Toyota Trophy wife a lot on this assignment and so far, no. I’m very excited to see what it’s like.
We still don’t know when we’ll be coming back to Michigan. The kids have started to express their desire to “go home” but unfortunately they’re not in charge of that decision. I promise to keep people up to date with information as it comes to us. Which is slowly, and not in a timely fashion.
I hope you all are well. Feel free to drop me a note to tell me how you are.`
