Finally arriving in Tucson, Arizona on the 5th of March! We were picked up at the airport by my parents and went to their home to visit and pick up our well missed Mustang to use while in town. I miss that car, is that weird? Maybe so but there it is. They are taking … Continue reading Overseas to Overseas part 2- First Half
May-June 2014 Goings-on
Lets see, what have we been up to lately... Since my friend deserted us to return to her home in the U.S. We have been keeping around base mostly, gearing up for my step-daughter to be visiting in a few weeks. On base a few weeks ago they put on a Wine Tasting that was … Continue reading May-June 2014 Goings-on
Plane To Knowhere
I look around to locate my husband, he's on his way over and it puts a smile on my face. My friend and former boyfriend is there on the group trip with us and adding to the fun atmosphere, as usual. Nothing awkward here at all and that is so nice. We are given seats … Continue reading Plane To Knowhere
Bringing 2014 in Right-ish
Warning: Long Post Commencing - Settle In I know I know, it's taken almost two weeks for me to report on my New Year's Eve celebrating, but I've been uber sick with what I thought was a nasty cold but the cough lingered and did not improve so I gave in and went to the … Continue reading Bringing 2014 in Right-ish
December 2013 began with a cough and sniffle. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised, working with children all day four days a week it was inevitable that I catch a virus or two and it is not unheard of for me to get sick during the holidays as a general rule. For some reason the … Continue reading December Follies

A week before the … Continue reading Tokyo Weekend
A New Love/Hate Relationship
There's a trend here in Japan and I don't know if it's going on anywhere else, I'll assume so at the risk for making an ass of myself. It's girls and adult women attaching a certain doll, icon, thingy to their bags. I've been slowly and methodically looking for the right fit for me and … Continue reading A New Love/Hate Relationship
I woke up yesterday in a pretty darn good mood. Had a funny conversation with a great friend who always makes me laugh and brightens my day - *cough*Shirley*cough* then was off to start my work day. Walking to work was amazing, the cool crisp Autumn air was uplifting and I smiled all the way … Continue reading Thursday Shenanigans
The best part of my birthday is that it falls around a 3 day weekend so I usually get three days to celebrate. Ok who am I kidding, I celebrate for about a week, I'll be honest. This year, our first in Japan was a really great time. It started out on Friday, we went … Continue reading Birthday Weekend
Trick Or Treat and… Ted?
Yes, I know it's July. This is a cool little restaurant right in the middle of Roppongi (the happening night life part of Tokyo) which is decorated rather like a horror show. There are candle chandeliers hanging from a black ceiling, dark wood furniture and some horror film characters set about. … Continue reading Trick Or Treat and… Ted?
