Fast and Furious!

My posting has been pretty sporadic this last month and it will continue to be so until we all get settled in Japan. But I will try to post what I can with some updates and hopefully some bookish things too.

I'm heading to Vegas this next weekend with my friends for one last hurrah! I'm so excited. My devoted H is taking the week off and getting stuff moved and watching Gabe. He is so sweet to let me have this last little vacay with my friends.

Then the week after that it's off to Japan for a week to find a home. The agency working with us has picked out various apartments within our family range and most look pretty neat. They are small--so we will be heading back to apartment status for two years but they look nice and we're all excited.

As for my kitties. My oldest, grumpiest, and most needy cat Frodo will either be staying with my mom or my friend for the first 6 months and then my mother-in-law will take him the rest of the time once she moves back to Oregon. So I'm feeling a lot better about that. I'll miss my cats to so much. My friends and my cats, those are the hardest things about this move. But I'm trying to be positive and am looking forward to our new adventure!

We even sold our Toyota Camry this week for a good price and am now driving around in a rental VW Jetta :) We're signing our rental agency this next week to get our place rented out and taken care of while we're gone. There is still a ton of packing to do but we are getting it done slowly but surely.

I've been putting together a little airplane kit for Gabe. My friend sent me an article from on 50 Ways to Entertain a Kid on an Airplane. A lot of the suggestions are for toddlers, but there were plenty of ideas that still fit Gabe's age.

And when I get anything in Japan, the top of the list will be this adorable Totoro bed ;) And if you don't know what I'm talking about you need to watch My Neighbor Totoro pronto :)


  1. I am so looking forward to reading about you adventures in Japan. We had friends that went for a few weeks and they came back raving about it.

    1. That's what I hear! I'm excited too.

  2. I'm so glad you found someone to take in Frodo! I know you are very relieved. Have a great time in Vegas. Remember, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. ;)

    Good luck with finding the right place to live. How exciting and scary at the same time. I can't wait to hear how you're liking it once you get moved. Now fess up...the bed is really for you, right? haha!

  3. That bed is so cute, and I'm glad you've found a good home for your kitties.


Thanks for reading my posts and for letting me know what you think!
