Our Trip to the Shrine!

This weekend we decided to go to downtown Tokyo and visit a Shrine! The name of the Shrine is Asakusa, it was very exciting. At the shrine people pray and throw money into little money things, there is also a place where you go and let smoke go over you so the bad goes away...This is all I understand about what goes on there. It is different but cool. There were some pretty cool food stands and a lot of pigeons.
We also got to go to Hard Rock it was so nice to have some American food at a restaurant. We had so much fun! I love it here and can't wait to see more!

Back in Japan

So... we are back. We were so glad to be with each other again! We got here the day after Valentines day once again missing a Valentines day... but it was still great. I got us all unpacked and have been sick ever since. Joe's 25th Birthday was on Saturday and I was so sick that we didnt have the Party we had planned. What a Bummer. We finally today I feel a ton better. Joe's work has been way more intense since we got back ... but good for me that intence work is all in the same amount of time in the work day, so he is still at the same time. I should start Subbing at one of the Elementary schools on base in the next few weeks. Well we are just so happy to get things back to normal... even if our normal is living in Japan.
