Wahoo! I turn 25 today! Well, technically tomorrow because I was born in the states and Japan is like, "in the future". I'm celebrating today anyways!
Last night Ian said that I should go on Fabric.com and pick out $50 worth of fabric and yarn. Sqweee! He's too good to me. I got some more sock yarn to take him some socks and a bunch of discounted fabric. I even got some fabric for another dress! I'm so excited. I'm also going to the spa this afternoon. I hope they have air conditioning because I can't think of a better way to beat the afternoon heat than a rub down. I'm also gonna go to the post office and see if I got any mail because I'm really looking forward to the Popsicle molds that mom is sending. Who doesn't love Popsicles?
We finally bought a car from a Japanese dealer. It was a little more expensive than buying it on base but we figured that two years of JCI (it's like their carbon emissions inspection), two sets of tires, and 30 days garanteed was worth the pennies. Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of the car before Ian took it to work this morning. I'm a maroon station wagon - a Honda Orthia. It drives a bit like a boat, but there is room to haul things in and it's 4 wheel drive. Which is gonna come in really handy here in the winter. Think Buffalo, NY like snowfall. In Japan they drive on the left side of the road, so the cars are all backwards to. Plus there are a bunch of new signs to learn and the streets are really narrow out here.
I also bought a new drop leaf table. It's an English antique that this SSGT got probably on his last stationing in England. They were using it as a craft table but it's in really good condition. The best thing is that it was only $20. My grandmother thinks it might be cherry so I'm gonna clean it up real nice and use it in the studio. It's about the size of a card table when the leaves are out.
Anyways, off to walk the dogs. Talk to you later.
