Wednesday very late = Thursday very early!

So, we've said our goodbyes, packed all our stuff (all 14 bags and boxes - hope they're in a generous mood when we check in!) and tidied up. The cleaning will happen in the morning and we'll be off to the airport by 11:30. Many tears were shed and many gifts exchanged. We almost had to add another box just for the gifts!

I'm still really stressed and distressed and I'm really hoping that a lot of it dissipates when the flight leaves Narita tomorrow evening.

There have been some reports on dangerous radiation levels found in water, in soil and in food today - but no aftershocks higher than 5.5. Hopefully our two hours in Narita will be in a low-incidence window and we'll get out without any shaking.

It's now 12:45am here - time to head to bed.

Love to all.


  1. I am so glad you are on your way! Safe travels!

  2. Wishing you a safe and smooth trip home :) Hugs to you all :)

  3. You're doing pretty good if you can get some sleep - I pulled an allnighter the night before we left our time in Japan behind, and was pretty much an emotional wreck. You sound MUCH BETTER than I did! Good job. Will be with you every step of the way... in prayer, love Kim
