Nano Poblano – Day 25: Goings On

44 Comments

My blog isn’t normally about my personal schedule, but because of the community I’ve kind of built around this site, I feel obligated to let you, my friends, know what’s going on for the next little while.

First, tomorrow, I’m going to an occupational therapist to see about my bad shoulder in the morning, and to an optometrist in the afternoon. I’ll have drops in my eyes, which probably means no screen time after that since the horrid things usually affect me for at least eight hours. I hope to be able to post tomorrow before I go.

Then this Saturday will be my last “live” SoCS entry until the 20th of December. I leave for Tokyo on Saturday the 6th and will be home on the 17th. Considering I leave Japan two hours after I arrive in Canada, I’ll be pretty bagged and doubt I’ll be online again until the 18th.

What this means for you, my dear participants in One-Liner Wednesday and SoCS, is that you’ll still be able to participate in both, except I won’t be around. I’ll have the One-Liners scheduled already for the 10th and the 17th, and for SoCS I’ll either do the same or I’ll have guest-posters here to organize things. I still have to contact the three people who said they might be willing to help out, to see if they’re still “in.”

I hope to have reliable enough wifi where I’m staying that I can check in once in a while, but I don’t plan on spending too much time online.

In the meantime, as you can probably imagine, I’ll be pretty busy getting ready to leave and doing as much Christmas shopping as humanly possible so I don’t need to do too much while I’m away. Luggage space will be limited. Again, what this means is that I won’t be able to read as many blogs as I usually do, or keep up with the comments. But I’ll do my best!

For anyone wondering how I’m paying for this (I’m looking at you, Social Services), I’ve been saving for years. There’s a reason I have only one pair of shoes, have a hair cut once every three years, and am still wearing a coat that was bought for me as a Christmas gift 30 years ago – and no, that’s not an exaggeration.

Oh, and as a side note, I just got a call from Best Buy to say my laptop battery is in – let’s hope it fits!!!

    • Thank you, Joey!! 😀 I think I really just need to be careful with my shoulder for a while and my eyes were as good as last time I went to have them tested, 6 or 7 years ago. The optometrist did tell me to get some good sunglasses though. 😛

  8. Wow Japan. So lucky. Always wanted to go there. Started with my obsession with anime and then the Japanese culture. Tried to teach myself Japanese by buying all of these language books. Sadly, they are dusty on my shelves. I hope you have a wonderful time. Take lots of pictures 🙂

    • I will definitely take pictures. 😀 Japan is a great country to visit – I’d recommend it to anyone who gets a chance to go. I took a course the first time I went. This time I’m just studying the textbook. 🙂

  9. Enjoy your trip. Be sure to take warm clothes if you’re going to the north half of Japan. Lots of cold and snow from what I understand. Be safe. ❤

  18. I’ve been wondering about your eyes… hope it’s nothing a new prescription can’t handle. Bon voyage!

    • My eyes seem to be a bit better since I realized it was hydration-related, but I’d still like to have them examined. It’s been at least 7 years since the last time I had my eyes checked.
      Thanks, Maggie! 😀
