Although it can be hectic at times, in the end I’m grateful that people come to visit us and help out things around the house. Had I known that having a baby would get people crawling out the woodwork to cook our meals and clean our house, I might have acted sooner.
This weekend Ray got to meet his 3 cousins, who came to visit from the other side of Japan. They were only here for a night, but there was plenty of action and energy around our house. Ray was a bit fussy today, crying a lot. Maybe he’s not used to all the people and noise, or maybe he’s just more alert and irritable than he was before.
After our guests left, Chieko and I both promptly passed out. I was under the kotatsu, Ray was sleeping on the couch, and Chieko was in the bed. When I woke up a while later, quite hot from the kotatsu, it had started raining. I went to the gym, then picked Cheiko’s mom up at the train station. We got back around 8, and I ran over to the supermarket to get some ingredients for dinner and tomorrow’s lunch. After cooking and eating, I gave Ray a bath and made my lunch for tomorrow, and now am ready to keel over where I sit. So that’s what I’ll do now. Good night.
