It's been a while since I've posted anything. Funny how life can be dull and boring at one moment and then in an instant it's crazy. Well I am at the crazy, insane stage. I have too many irons in the fire, all of my own choosing, and now I am paying the price. :p We are in the process of...
OMG I am so happy my Vicar of Dibley of DVD's arrived today! I absolutely love Dawn French. Actually I was thinking of all the TV shows that I love are British. I own the As Time Goes By series and To The Manor Born. I own part of the Keeping Up Appearances, and some Ab Fab DVD's too...
Well, today was my first day of a Catholic "who is Mary and what is she about and her relationship to God and Jesus" class. I didn't sign myself up for it, my dear ole' Mom did the deed. It's only on Wednesdays for 1 1/2 hours. I already feel like a heretic in class. There are just so many...
I was picking up my niece from school and while I was driving through the snowy Wisconsin countryside my mind started wandering and I was thinking of all the friends I have had in my life and how I don't talk to most of them anymore. It's like they were friends for the first part of my life. I...
I love sekihan, the sticky rice with red beans. I wanted some so I decided to cook it last night. Well wouldn't ya know it, I was out of the red adsuki beans. I thought well I do have red beans, but they are big, red, kidney beans in a can. I thought why not give them a try. The rice wasn't...
Well as usual being a vegetarian in Japan was causing some grief. I hate that I can be such a problem. I am happy to go to any restaurant and just be with friends. It's not necessary for me to eat anything. I'll be happy with a drink, a soda or a beer :). We ended up at a restaurant that...
I love to travel, but I absolutely hate packing my suitcase, computer case and all of that busy work. My sister-in-law is a pre-packer. She gets her suitcase out about a month before and addsa little to it daily. My husband is ready already! I on the other hand will be packing tomorrow night...
Well, I am back from Guam. As is usual whenever I take a trip I ended up visiting the local hospital(Guam Memorial Hospital, approx. 2am). Since my sister-in-law and I rented a car, we had found the hospital 3 times on accident as they don't actually use street signs to label the roads. Plus...
I went out to dinner with some friends last night and the conversation turned to airplane crashes. One of my friends, although she flies, doesn't like to. She'll drive everywhere if she could. She wanted to know since I fly a lot and usually long distances don't I worry about being in a...
With our break from the usually bitter cold Wisconsin weather, we took the opportunity to finally let our huge black lab, Fin, run free off his leash for the first time! It was so great to see him get to run at liberty. He is such a cool dog. He now tops out at over 120 pounds and looks like...
Del Amitri Nothing Ever Happens Post office clerks put up signs saying position closed And secretaries turn off typewriters and put on their coats Janitors padlock the gates For security guards to patrol And bachelors phone up their friends for a drink While the married...
With all the fuss about Japan and fingerprinting, it actually got my husband and I talking more throughly about our future together. He has never said that I have to become Japanese (as in passport) if we move to Japan. Just as I make no issue with him being a Japanese citizen living in the...
