One of Those Days…

Today was the type of day you want to take into a back alley and beat on with a two-by-four until it doesn’t twitch anymore. Then, take the carcass and burn it alive just to be sure it doesn’t come back for one final scare like in a Freddy Krueger Movie.

You know those days.

The days that a good bunker buster is needed to wipe out, and a little salt on the earth it once stood to make sure nothing grows there again.  

I don’t know why, but everyone in Japan decided to go somewhere and clog up the roads.  It was rainy, wet, and windy. The roads were full, everywhere was full of people.

That includes the clinic we had to visit today for hopeful another cycle of “fun”.  (The type of fun you want to take into a back alley… you get my drift).  It was so packed inside there weren’t any seats. When we finally got seats, they were next to a screaming baby.

We were also late because the traffic was so terrible (accidents all over the place).  Everything errand we did took twice as long because of the crowds and left us frustrated and drained.  As I said, I don’t like this day and the weather makes it worse.

Our errands are almost finished and then we are finished with this awful day and awful weather.

I’m usually more positive, but not today.

I’ll be better tomorrow.

When I was in my twenties, I moved to Japan and met a man there. We embarked on our adventure through life and love. I have lived with him in Japan ever since. We want to start a family, but that is proving difficult. I struggle with infertility. We almost had a child, but that ended in tragedy. Now we enjoy each day and hope that one day we'll hear the pitter-patter of little feet and the bubbly laughter of a child. In the meantime, I enjoy writing, love, studying, traveling, and working. These posts are my thoughts and stories of my life here.
