As much as I love Champaign, I have been a little homesick for Japan lately. I know I'm not the only one. Jeremy is missing the food and Katniss is missing the festivals. Thankfully the campus was having a great little festival at the Japan House on base. Jeremy and I decided to take Katniss to it.
Traveling back to Japan was hard. I really wanted to stay in the States. I miss my friends and family and three weeks was just not enough. But Jeremy is in Japan and as his wife that meant my life is now in Japan. Traveling back was also hard because I was dreading my flights with China Eastern again.
So a while back I wrote about how I tried to get cheap tickets to go back home. I thought I had gotten a great deal to fly home on China Eastern and JetBlue but I was soooooo wrong. I want to start this off with saying I love JetBlue! They offer amazing customer service and the flights with them were great. China Eastern on the other hand... I will NEVER EVER fly with them again.
Happy Halloween! By the time you read this I would have already started on an extremely long three days. Today is Halloween. I will be taking my students trick or treating tonight. I can't wait to see the kids in their costumes. Jeremy, the cats, and I will be dressing up as well. We are all characters from Supernatural. Jeremy will be Dean, Bagheera is Castiel, Katniss is Amara, and I will be Rowena. I love dressing up and love that I will be a red head again
I have always been plus size. Before I blamed it on my schedule (no time to cook healthy or work out). I blamed it on it being too expensive to buy healthy stuff all the time. Then I blamed it on Hashimoto's. Yes I have put on weight because of the Hashimoto's but I need to be honest with myself and admit that I am a bigger part of the problem than the disease.
This past week and this week will be full of changes. Last week Jeremy and I started reorganizing things in our apartment. We threw out a lot of things in our storage unit mainly because we haven't seen it in a year and half. Now we moving onto to the various closets in the apartment (there are way too many in here).
