Our wonderful shop isn't going to be finished before we leave for Japan, and we're more than a little bummed about that.
We were looking forward to decorating and maybe even enjoying it for a while before leaving, and now we're gonna have to leave so many things undone.
And Japan, for once, is creeping up on me way too fast.
Usually i can't wait, but because we've been so busy i haven't had any time to prepare like i usually do.
No Japanese studies, no sightseeing research.
No packing and shopping lists!
I wonder if my friends even know i'm coming?
And i also have a tattoo appointment and no idea what to get tattooed.*
Also, our autoclave decided to die on us, and anyone familiar with the cost of these things can probably imagine why it's timing couldn't be worse.
At least we have some friendly neighbors who are willing to help us out tomorrow, but still... shit!
And there are a million other little things too that i won't bore you with, so lets just say it's been a rough couple of months.
I was having a minor meltdown earlier, so i went down to the lakes to feed some ducks.
Not the best time, since i managed to hit jogger-rush hour, but i still managed to have a few nice moments with the birds and the dog.
Nothing like a little nature to slow down time and put things in perspective, right?
This little guy won an epic battle against two other ducks (tail feathers were plucked out!) so he deserved to be fed by hand
There were swans too, but they kept hissing at me even though i was feeding them.
No pictures on the blog today.
Yeah, that'll teach them.
*That might be one of them good problems, but still, i need to decide on something and quick, this is a real appointment.
