only one more day left with my mom. she leaves on thursday. *sigh* i think it's going to be tough without her here, it's great having an extra pair of arms and hands. hopefully it will be sunny tomorrow so we can get some laundry done. and it would be nice to visit munakata shrine for the chrysanthemum festival. wish us luck!

tonight is a nabe night, it's getting colder here in fukuoka. i hate winter, but i guess it will be a good excuse for staying home all the time.
