In less than two weeks I will be headed to my Japan vacation! I am really nervous about this trip, mostly about flying. I’m not sure where or why my fear of flying developed, but it started about 2 years ago when I took a trip to Las Vegas. Then it got worse on my very turbulent flight to Hawaii and then my fear was reinforced during a flight to Philippines where the plane dropped suddenly and a ton of people screamed. **shivering** I don’t like to think about that part. I hope this flight is much smoother. When planning this trip, I was shocked to realize how expensive Japan is! Why is the exchange rate SO horrible!?!? Anyway, Peter tells me that vacationing is a necessity in life and not to worry. SO I’m going to try my hardest.
Other than planning for the trip, I’ve been trying to get settled in my lovely new apartment! It is on the 3rd floor so it’s hotter and was a pain to bring all the boxes up, but it’s slowly becoming a home. We’ve put up pictures of our families, we bought a bed and Peter is building a vanity for me! We also have a swimming pool now which is very nice, even though we are still walking distance to the beach. Our landlord is so much more helpful than the last and he says we remind him of himself and his wife when they were first starting out.
I’m soooo happy about where we are in our lives ❤
Since our last hike to Sella Bay, we decided to take a break and let our mosquito bites heal. Somehow I always end up with cuts and bruises, in addition to bug bites. I’m just about better, just in time for our trip! In the last couple of weeks we went to the Kool & the Gang concert, had drinks and listened to music at Outrigger hotel (very good place to go on a date), we went out for Mexican food at Caliente (my favorite place to eat Mexican food on Guam) and have been adjusting to a new work schedule that requires Peter to be up at 5am. We’ve also been trying to fight off the ants around our apartment. I don’t really want to use Raid in the kitchen and I know I heard there was a way to use vinegar (I think) to get rid of the ants, but I haven’t tried that yet. Guam life has been normal, except for the weather which has been a bit crazy. At the moment there is a tropical disturbance near us so it’s been dark and rainy all day.
Other than missing my family and friends, life is good and I have nothing to complain about.
Oh and in case you were wondering, we found a home for the little kitten! 🙂
