Weekending: thousand miles away

 { 06-03-2013 Tokyo Japan}

It has been a long time since the last post. Our move was a little  out of control and boy anything could gone wrong went wrong the week of moving. I have so many photos and stories to share with you later, but sadly I dropped my computer the week of moving week. The computer's operation system is not found at this point. I am taking it back to Taiwan and hope to retrieve all the files and photos. I have been crossed my fingers very hard and hope files and photos will be ok or I lost our years in ND photos... S is so kind to let me use her computer for the blog posts for now.

S and I flew over 6000 miles crossed the pacific ocean and landed in Japan last Friday. We are here for a short visit as we always plan this short vacation before heading our way to Taiwan. We have had so much great time with friends, great food, and great people in Japan. More stories later, i promise! 

The flight was long and S did very well for not being sick on the flight. She slept most of her time and watched a few movies. The trip has been so wonderful and she has been enjoy having mama's fully attention and fully energy just with her. I must admit spoil her a little extra on this trip was what I had before left the states. 

We both are still exhausted from the move and jet-lag from the time changes. We always had full busy first two days to exhaust our body then slow down when the body get use to the new weather and time zone. This morning, I was up at 4 and miss the French Press in the kitchen and miss some good coffee time and good blogs reading.. Did I just say coffee? um... 

Thank you for your emails and messages. We are surely miss our home in ND, but we are ready for the new year that's ahead of us. It has been so great to listen to S' observation and questions that she have had on this trip. She is soaking up so much news and gaining great experiences in her little body and I can't tell you enough.. this is what our year is really for!  A little scary still, but we'll make it fun and memorable.

Hope your weekending has been wonderful, {1/4" mark} home still on the move... will settle soon and hope more photos later.
