Well I am back in Tokyo from Toronto. I didn't mention my trip home before because I was flying home to surprise my sister Jen for her 40th birthday.
I had an amazing time in Toronto and at my cottage. I got to see so many people and my huge family all made it out to the cottage to celebrate Jen's and Autumn's birthdays.
Meredith was here alone in Tokyo but she survived. She went on trips to Kyoto and to Nikko and had a fabulous time.
It was the most amazing feeling to be home and to feel at home, to feel like I belong.
Now I am back in Tokyo and I feel kind of numb. I am not really upset to be back, I am not happy either. If I didn't love the city or my job it would probably be harder to be back. It doesn't feel weird to be back either.
I am keeping on keeping on.
Meredith and I have some fun things planned for the rest of her time here so I am really excited about that.
