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!
