The Last 13 Days

Sorry you haven't heard from me in a while.  I've been busy.

Once I arrived in the States, after being evauated from my home in Japan, I kind of felt sorry for myself.  I was living day to day worried sick about everything going on in Japan.  I was worried about my husband and my friends left behind.  I was worried about what would happen next.  I was stuck in a waiting game, and I was miserable.

Then, I decided to go to Houston and enjoy myself. 

In Houston, I tried to let all my worries fade.  I focused on the present and had as much fun as possible.

In 12 days, I managed to eat mass quantities of crawfish, see Lady Gaga in concert,  and went to the Children's Museum, The Children's Festival, The Museum of Natural Science, Chuck-E-Cheese, The Houston Zoo, and saw an IMAX movie in 3D called Sea Rex.  BJ and I partied like rock stars, danced at Pearl Bar and stayed out until 4 AM on both Friday night and Saturday night.  I saw friends and family members I haven't seen in years.  I thoroughly enjoyed myself in Houston, thanks to BJ. 

Sometimes a change of scenery can really make a difference, and going to Houston did just that.  Now, I feel better about my situation, and I'm happier in general.  Seeing all my friends and family members made me realize just how lucky I am. 

The kindness shown to me by my loved ones overwhelmed me.  I was taken care of over and over. 

Even though I still don't know what lies ahead, I don't really seem to care as much.  No matter what happens, I know I'll be taken care of, and knowing that is the BEST feeling in the world!

I am so blessed to have to such great people in my life!

BJ, Thanks again!  Love ya!  Muah!
