Have you ever wanted to do something with all your heart, but know for a fact that it would scare the shit out of you while doing it? That’s how I feel about going to Japan.

All my life, I’ve wanted to go to Asia, particularly Japan, and see the sights there. Everything about Asia is so awesome to me. I’ve always wondered if, maybe, one of my past lives was from there. Yeah, I believe in past lives. It’s a little weird, but it’s the only way for me to explain how I can feel so drawn to the things I’m drawn toward. This morning, I’ve been watching a show about the historic innovations of Japan (Science Channel nerd) and all it has done is made me want to go there even more. This, on top of fact that my man told me he’s wanted to go there forever, has got me scheming a little bit.

The scheme is this. If I can save up around $5,000, I should be able to plan a trip for myself and my man to Japan by our fifth anniversary. This means I’m going to have to start tucking away even more money than I am now. I’m going to have to find ways to cut money out of my bills and get myself motivated to do it. It scares the shit out of me, but I really want to do it. I want to experience adventure with my man like he always does when he goes off on his own.

I’m sad that it’s Wednesday already.

I don’t feel like I’ve had a whole vacation simply, because I’ve been fielding calls/texts from work almost every day. If it’s not one thing, it’s another. I swear these people can’t function without me and I’m the one that puts in the least amount of time there. I suppose that it just proves I’m a needed asset at my job? It’s still annoying to be off, but not really off.

I’ve been on vacation for three days already and that makes me sad.

I’m sad, because most of what I’ve done for the past three days is sleep and do nothing constructive. I did manage to put my closet together and get everything out of the floor. I’ve set my shoes out and put my suitcases on the top shelf of the big closet. I’m feeling slightly more at home in my own home now. It’s a good thing. Still looking around at the stuff in the spare room and trying to figure out where it will all go. I’ve got some family photos that I want to set out, but I’m not sure where I can set them. I kind of think that we need another table in the bedroom or some shelves in the living room so that I can put my family photos up. It’s a space issue really. A second bedroom nightstand would possibly be the easiest fix for it really. That’s what I’m leaning toward.

I’m finally taking a vacation for the first time since August.

Last year, I took my winter vacation early so that my circle of Xbox friends and I could get together for a grand event on our friend Marvin’s birthday. It was a super-long drive, but the whole thing was amazing. You might not consider Ohio to be a vacation destination, but the weather at the beginning of August was splendid last year. So much cooler than Arkansas, but still summery weather.
