Well, it's Sunday night and we're kinda frustrated/bored.
Not that we don't have stuff to do at our house. We have a good amount of interesting books we can read. We can always study Japanese, which is usually at least intellectually stimulating. We have a nice computer w/ broadband Internet. We have playing cards. We have a guitar. We have each other.
But when there's no energy, it's hard to do that stuff. And Aubrey right now lacks alot of energy. Her body is still recuperating AND she has a cold, which is making her pretty miserable. AND the weather is really lousy outside - it's like 55 F, w/ really high winds and a bit on the damp side. So we don't want to go outside. I mean, we DO want to go outside, and we DID for about 10 minutes, but Aubrey's still-not-70% status and the lousy weather mean that we're stuck inside.
So it's kind of a junky day for us. Hope tomorrow's weather will be nicer and Aubrey's cold will be gone.
Also, I was just talking to a friend who was driving up to the highest point on Kikai in order to pray to some dead relatives in heaven. He said that the higher he goes, he guesses the easier it would be for them to hear him. But he's not really sure about it. But he's going anyway. And he's going to offer them some candy. And this is a well-educated man - a schoolteacher.
The word of the day is, therefore, frustration. Write it down.
