Adventures in laundryland

Well, yesterday was a day of calm. My first day off since I arrived. I found my way to the large grocery store near the apartment, which might mean I can find the apartment again! I bought exciting items like laundry detergent and peanut butter (small jar for $4). Then I returned to the cubby and figured out how to operate the washing machine. And then hung the laundry to dry. I know that might not sound like a full day to you, but when everything you do is a giant puzzle a day can be filled up by the little things. Off to try and figure out other puzzles, like getting a cash advance on my credit card.

Hey Natalie,

If you would like some new books, I have some that I am done with and can send you. I fully understand the plight of the bookworm in Japan and it can become a pricy habit, but a few hundred yen to mail them up to you is no problem. If you want, send your mailing address to and if you it today then I can send them this afternoon! Otherwise it will have to wait until August because I'm headed home for a visit tomorrow. Yeah!!

It sounds like you're getting the hang of things. It's a steep learning curve, but when it flattens out you really feel like Queen of the Universe!!
