|Watch out Japan!|
Next weekend, Dustin and I will be driving to the U.S. to take advantage of their good prices and our fantastic exchange rate. Our mission is to purchase most of the extra clothes/shoes that we will need for at least a year in Japan. I absolutely despise clothes shopping for myself, especially when I know that my body will continue to change over the next few months in its journey back to pre-baby shape. I know that what fits now will be fairly large in 4 months, so it is a gamble trying to buy clothes for the future. I am sure that I will end up mail ordering a few more things once we are in Japan. At least I enjoy shopping for shoes and Dustin's clothes, and we will be accompanied by my in-laws, so the weekend won't be completely joyless.
We are still impatiently waiting to find out where we are going to end up, but as Manitobans we have a freakishly large hoard of sweaters, jackets, balaclavas, thermal underwear, toques, etc. to use in the unfortunate event that we are placed somewhere cold. Here's hoping we find out next week!
