The annoyances begin...

I woke up today at 6 am to take a walk. It was a good time, except for the fact that the humiditiy makes shoes fit weird and I ended up with blood gushing down my ankles thanks to sudden blisters from shoes I`ve been wearing for years.

Japan has no discount flights. You know how you can fly to Las Vegas for $79? Not here. By being placed in Okinawa, it is almost impossible to go and see Ken thanks to prices and time schedules. I am not happy right now.

The school has an appalling amount of supplies. No poster board. No real crayons or markers. No construction paper. As a teacher who relies on such things, I am getting frustrated.

I think I`m just having a bad day. The good news is that it`s Friday and I`m getting plans lined up for the afternoon and evening. And in a few short minutes, I can continue a newly formed tradition... "watching" the White Sox live on my computer. Love the time difference. I still don`t have a flight to see Ken, though.

Just the other day, my friend told me to that regardless of how my days goes, to be happy because she had to look at poop for her job (in her residency). So think of it this way, you could be looking at poop.

Poop. Gross! I feel very grateful all of a sudden.

I'm sorry to hear about the Ken situation. Don't worry, it will all work out somehow....
