We made it through our tough week.
We are bitterly exhausted, ready to collapse at any moment, but we are in the home of gracious hosts, so we are pushing ourselves till evening.
We got everything done, thanks to our friends in Japan. We would have been fine on our own in all regards other than trash. We did not plan for Japan’s intense system of separation, and missed our chance on several items to send them out with the trash. We could have been smarter about it, and in the end we would have been in big trouble if it hadn’t been for the kindness of our friends in town. We missed the day to throw out electronics, and missed the day to throw out the glass.
The bottom line is everything that needed to get done was finished because of our amazing friends, and now we get to go spend four days on the warm beaches of Phuket, Thailand.
