Bye Batty and Sonoko!

Our friends left yesterday, after meeting up one last time for lunch at Five Guys. They'll be in the states for another week or so, but they've got family activities to attend to. Thank you both so much for coming to see us. Thanks for laughing at bad movies with me, and introducing me to new TV I had missed (Curb Your Enthusiasm is definitely going to get watched). Sonoko, thanks for being the voice of reason and keeping us from having one too many. And for driving us home. And introducing me to bizarrely fun DS rhythm games. J and I love you two muchly, and kiddo or no, we're going to come see you guys again. Someone has to take advantage of the new spare bedroom in Yokohama!

Why is it...

...that hard work is only rewarded with more of the same?

My crazy busy week

Aaron and Sonoko are visiting. Ambrose is visiting. My Prius is at the tire shop today getting a tire replaced, courtesy of the nail I found sticking out of it at breakfast Sunday. I had a doctor's appointment scheduled for today at four, but I just cancelled it because I've now got a big site launch at work to get ready for. I've got to find time to go pick up the Prius, but then tomorrow it goes back, this time to a body shop to fix the damage where someone rear ended it in a parking lot. In the mean time, I'm driving my jeep around, but no matter how good I get at driving it, commuters don't appreciate waiting on a fifty year old vehicle to get up to speed. At least I'll have a rental once the Prius gets to the body shop.

All of this leaves me wanting a week that follows a more or less normal schedule again. Of course, I love having friends visit, and will take that any day over long absences. And the very idea of 'normal schedule' is laughable with a baby on the way.

Welcome Aaron and Sonoko!

Our friends Aaron and Sonoko Batty are visiting from Tokyo. We should see them tomorrow, and get to hang out for a week or so. Wish it could be longer, but we're happy to get to see them at all! I think it says a lot about these two that we've stayed friends, despite the distance involved. Can't wait to see you guys!

Why do my weekends revolve around food?

Friday: Friends come over to watch Battlestar Galactica, chili fries are served.

Saturday: Friends meet at Italian restaurant.

Sunday: Janie brings me breakfast, then we begin preparation for friends coming over for Super Bowl watching. Three kinds of dips, burgers, brats, red hots.
