it has been a crazy couple of weeks. two birthdays last week, two japanese class excursions, work, hard rock cafe, more work, birthday party and halloween. this week was spent just recovering from it all! not only that, but sasha and tommy had tuesday off from school (not sure why) and thursday was a holiday! the positive thing there: i didn't have to make a bento!!

this morning it rained and rained, and it got rather hot. and i thought the super-cool weather we've been having meant summer was over. tricked again!

i hope that the coming week isn't nearly as busy as the past two have been.
