how are you?

Sorry it's been a bit quiet here.

It's been a short yet "long" 2 months...

LOTS has happened in that amount of time...LOTS

I learned a lot about the "things" involved after someone passes...

If you have a chance to get your "stuff" in order, do so.

And if you can put your name on your parent's bill statements and such, do so (most places won't talk to you unless you are on their statements or listed as a beneficiary of sorts).

Though, I would say that we were really lucky that my mom put everything pretty much in order for us. (Thanks Mom!)

I must admit it took some time calling around and getting things sent in, but I'm glad I was able to get through it.

I want to thank my aunties who helped me figure out what needed to be done...

BFF, Wen, and my "niece", Malia, for keeping me sane...

I didn't post about this, but there were actually 3 more trips to the ER for my Dad (all for different reasons)...luckily, he is doing fine, but I guess "drama" and "excitement" refuse to leave us alone...

I am a bit worn for wear and am looking forward to getting back into my kitchen, spending some time with Satoshi, finding out what happened to my plants on the lanai...maybe even catching part of Autumn too.

I'm headed back to Japan today.

Talk to you from the other side of the world.

Be well everyone.
