So who am I? Thats a good question – one that it might take a long time to explain. For now the short version should suffice. I’m American, 25, currently married to a 25 year old Japanese man with a daughter due apprx. July 21, 2009.
Up until now I have been working on the JET program as a CIR (coordinator for international relations) in Kobe City but due to the impending birth of my daughter and my husbands new job as a civil servant for a small city hall we moved to the countryside in Niigata.
Up until this point I have always lived in big cities – my husband was born and raised in this area in case you are interested – and the adjustment has been difficult. Add to the fact that we are currently living with my inlaws and I’m in my late 3rd trimester of pregnancy and life just isn’t as fun as it used to be.
However we are working through the difficulties and planning to move to a larger town and get our of my PIL’s house by the end of June and hopefully begin our life as a 3 person family unit. Currently my blog has been home to a bunch of rants but I’m hoping as I slowly get used to life here the blog will focus more on our family and especially our daughter who I can’t wait to meet.
Thanks for stopping by!
