I’m not sure where the week went, or frankly where Saturday went.
We got a late start to the day because we had chores to do at home and then no motivation. Hahaha
We needed to go downtown and then in the opposite direction later so we opted to drive downtown instead of hoping the tube. (I met an British las today!)
Omg. Never again. It took forever to get to and from downtown. Plus parking was excruciating. Ugh.
We did catch a bit of a dance competition that was neat.
But the photographer spent most of her time following us around. At least she was kind enough to offer to take our photo.
In the shopping center there was an advertisement for the new Lego land here in Japan. That was pretty cool and the kids are excited to visit the actual display!
Then we headed to a store that is similar to target in the US. Although, clearly not as awesome. I did get Baxter bunny a leash so look forward to an update on that when I managed to get it on his little bunny body.
I did not however by a slit pouch.
Nor did we buy these giant zip ties, but you can see from Isaac’s face that I threatened to use them.
That is some Fifty Shades of Grey nonsense!
Also AutoCorrect automatically capitalized Fifty Shades of Grey.
Excitingly, I was invited to go out with a group of moms tonight! My first real ladies night out in Japan!
We went to a restaurant called aloha table that clings to be Hawaiian. Having never been to Hawaii, I cannot comment on that. However, the food and company was really amazing!
Because of the strict zero tolerance for drinking and driving in Japan, I was happy to hop on my yellow line. Plus the walk to and from the station was good to work off some of the mojitos.
I’m still really glad to be in Japan, but having happy moments also makes me miss sharing them with the people I love most. I often see something or do something or hear something and think to myself “I wish I could tell so-and-so about this!” And while modern technology has made that easier, there’s still quite a distance. There is also a distinct possibility that my mojitos have made me sad.
It felt really good to get out of the house and be a grown-up this evening! I’m very thankful to Nathaniel who encouraged me, nay, kicked me out of the house.
I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s explore Japan Sunday, and I hope you are too!
