We’ve been madly packing & repacking & cleaning & doing more cleaning. I’m starting to feel a bit like Vasalisa with her impossible tasks. Perhaps Baba Yaga has given me a choice:
Well, I haven’t blogged for awhile. If you’ve been reading Ed’s blog you know we’ve been insanely packing and dealing with all the paperwork that comes with leaving Japan. I’ve been going to work for half days and whipping through what I think may be the last of the paperwork. Now – cleaning, packing, cleaning, and more cleaning. I hope that everything we have left fits into our suitcases!
Ed and I are having very different experiences regarding leaving our jobs here. I can’t wait to leave – it’s definitely time for me to get back to my creative work and to having a brain. There are too many things in a Japanese office that go counter to my ideals for me to stay another year. Ed has said he’d be happy to stay another year, but not with me being so miserable.
We’ve been busy packing & preparing to leave (14 more days!!!), so I’ve been even worse at posting than I was to begin with! I am very ready to be done with this job, and it is showing in strange little ways.
