I’m volunteering for Purrfect Pals Cat Shelter, because they are the wonderful organization we adopted our little Penny from Penny the day we brought her home!

First off, thank you for all the sweet comments and emails about my marathon! It was a big accomplishment to me and I can’t wait to work harder and improve throughout 2014. I signed up for the Space Coast Marathon November 30th. I might do one before then but if not, it will be my [...]

The past week has been a whirlwind of errands, parties, packing and goodbyes. Today I went back to the hospital to get my 6 stitches out, but the doctor could only take 1 out. I’m so irritated I have to not only go back, but it’s the day I leave Japan! My to-do list is [...]

Big News! I’m Moving!

I’ve been putting off blogging about this for a while, and once I wrote it out, I sat on it for even longer. Maybe I kept thinking I’d change my mind. Or I’d find a perfect job here in Tokyo. Or all my US family and friends would decide to move to Japan. But those [...]
