Well, I got very sick and was flat on my back most of the weekend and missed the race. I am quite disappointed but life goes on. The good news is, I am feeling much better now, and as an added bonus, my legs aren't sore from running 26 miles 2 days ago. So, I'm trying to look on the bright side.
We have had a light dusting of snow the last two mornings. The snow is already melted this morning at 9:15, but it sure was pretty to wake up too. The Japanese school year ends in march; The kids have less than 2 weeks left of first and 4th grades. (Yes, for those of you paying attention, they have been in first and 4th grade for a long time now, but they do school by age here.) They get about 2 weeks off and then will begin 2nd and 5th grade. The last day of school is just before N's birthday, we will spend a few weeks enjoying ourselves, and will be returning to the US on August 5th. We leave Osaka at about noon and will arrive in SF at about 11am. So we will finally get that day back we lost last summer.
Spring is in the air, even with the snow. We have had a few absolutely gorgeous days here, and its supposed to be in the high 50s or low 60s this weekend.
