and Naoto will finally be back from Japan. Yippee! I have to say that I got loads of stuff done while he was gone.

Lonely evenings and all.

And yesterday girl1 remarked in the car “it’s been so long since I’ve seen daddy that I forgot what his face looks like.”

It’s not like this is the longest he’s ever been gone. He left pregnant me with girl1 in Tokyo for a month and a half a few years ago. That truly sucked.

This time, I have to say that my friends really eased the pain. I overbooked us socially and it made us tired (well me tired) but it helped alot.

We’ve got good friends here. And now that girl1 got her acceptance letter to Saturday Japanese school, it looks like a few of them will become long term ones.

Me. Like. Portland.
