When this post goes live I will either be moving into our new home or about to fly back to states to start the move process. Either way, I will be quite busy. I apologize if it takes a few days to respond to emails, comments or messages.
A few months after Jeremy and I moved to Japan, my Dad passed away suddenly. He was a great man and I miss him a lot. Even though it’s been 2.5 years, I sometimes still struggle with it. After he passed I wrote post on Southern Ohana telling about his life. I highly recommend reading it before reading the rest of this post. Knowing who he was will help understand why I know my dad comes to visit me.
Today has been an interesting day to say the least. I went to Hiroshima with some new friends Sam and Jaime (the couple I went to Costco with last week), and their friends Michael and Graham. We wanted to go try out the haunted house that we had been hearing about. It is only going on until September 8th. The Japanese haunted houses are associated more with Obon than Halloween. Today was our only chance to visit it before it closed. This haunted house was located by the Hiroshima Carps stadium.
