She's Baaaack!

Hello, friends. Yes, we are back and safe at home. The rest of my family is passed out (it is 5pm here, 9am in Japan). No one slept on the 10 hour flight home so I'm assuming jet lag is going to be a big issue here, especially with school starting Tuesday (!)

I've dropped by to say a quick thanks to my wonderful guest posters who held down the fort and kept my traffic flowing. I loved reading all the comments and thanks to those of you new readers who took the time to leave nice words. And, of course, thanks to my ex-pat pal, Debbie, without whose advice and suggestions I would have been lost.

I'm going to bid you sayonara now. I am still recuperating from bronchitis and neck spasms (how the hell I injured my neck is a mystery but try sitting on a ten hour flight when every time you lean back or turn right you want to blow the roof right off the plane).

I will write and post pictures as soon as I get my thoughts together. It was a fantastic trip, despite my son's whining and the constant rain. The Japanese are wonderful people and their country, especially Kyoto, is beautiful.

But being abroad always makes me truly appreciate the good ol' US of A.
It's good to be home.
Now I have to go wake everyone up.
Wish me luck.
