Yesterday morning DH had a health problem and I asked him to report it to the dialysis clinic. I went to work to do some prep, and the clinic called me back. The impression I got from them was worse than I later found to be the real situation. P... Read more

Dreadful behavior by our dreadful landlord is having an impact on my very frail husband's health. He doesn't feel he can cope with a house move because of his disabilities. From now I have a few days with no teaching and only a little work. I wo... Read more
A sixty-hour week

There was a request from outside my school for me to teach a two-hour class, but it went into my junk file, a problem other teachers have. I look at my junk file regularly but it’s all in Japanese, and if something looks unfamiliar, I don’t pay ... Read more

I don’t often go into the overweight range, but I spend far too much time bumping along just below it. I don’t need to use much self-discipline to continue just below the limit, and of course I like that. The thing is, when I walk past the bathr... Read more
The perils of eating out with friends
Sunday, November 04, 2018      12 comments

It’s certainly a fun way of socializing with a group of friends, and with a large group, it’s fairly easy to eat only a little inconspicuously, but it’s not so easy with a smaller group. One way to deal with the situation is to relax a... Read more

I had five wonderful hours all to myself this morning, the first time since early September. For three weeks in September, DH was in hospital, two of the weeks very ill, so the mornings I had at home didn’t feel like time off, even though I was ... Read more

DH came out of hospital on Monday and I went back to work on Tuesday. I wondered how he would manage. I had meals set up, but he waited till I came home pretty late. Yesterday was less well set up. DH had to go to the doctor and the day was a se... Read more
I cooked my own lunch today

So you’re thinking huh!!! So she’s patting herself on the back for that? I do sometimes cook just for me when DH is in hospital, but I’m mostly out anyway, and in Japan, if you choose well, you can eat out, and eat healthily and cheaply all the ... Read more

It’s great to have long vacations but it’s quite a change to go from long workweeks with a long commute to spending a lot of time at home. I don’t always do well with that much freedom and I was starting to turn into a worry wart. I don’t l... Read more
Don’t worry!

I certainly waste a lot of time on the Internet, but it often helps me live my life, too. Some people say it’s harder to be a caregiver than to be the sick person. Well it may just be me, but I don’t think so. I would not be thrilled to sw... Read more
