I can't believe that it is almost the middle of the month!!!  Where has time gone?
So to back track a bit!
New Year's Eve the kids and I just stayed home.  I made party food and we watched a movie.  After that the kids went upstairs, I could hear them laughing and fooling around.  It's nice that they are happy to hang out together.  They were having a tournament,  cards, chess, darts and shogi. Whoever won the most games was the tournament winner!  At midnight we watched the New Year being rung in at the various temples across Japan.  I never feel like going to these places, too cold and too many people.  I like the comfort of my home!

Party food

New Years Day we just hung at home.  I went to the local mall to check out the price of fridges but the electric store was closed!
January 5th was Christopher's birthday and January 9th Mikey's birthday!  I am having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that Mikey is now 22, how did that happen!

So 2014!  Not sure how I feel about that!   Last year was tough and I am glad that it is over.  But I am moving away from my memories of Hisao and that makes me sad!  This time last year I could think that the year before he was here with me.  Now I can't!

One thing I must do is loose weight!  i have already lost the 2kgs I put on over the holidays. Just another 30 to go!   But I would settle to 10!!!   So I will try and write bout that as well!!!
