Last night in the United States...for a while



Keith and I both have "Happy Feet" knowing we will be in Japan in a little over 24 hours. Even though we still have a lot to do once we get there, it is almost as if we have been climbing a giant hill and once we arrive our descent will begin. Finding a new house, starting a new job and greeting Jack are all so much more exciting than packing, ending a crappy job and experiencing the "joys of pregnancy". And by "joys of pregnancy" I mean marshmallow feet, the worst heartburn I have ever had and the constant feeling that I have just completed an Iron Man.

We fly out tomorrow morning at 10:40 from San Diego to LAX, then LAX to Japan. We should arrive in Narita, Japan at 12:00am pacific standard time...4:00pm Japan time. So here's the trick:

Pacific Time Zone people: Take your time + 4 hours, switch am to pm or pm to am
i.e. If it is 1:00pm in California, then it is 5:00am the
next day in Japan

Central Time Zone people: Take your time + 2 hours, switch am to pm or pm to am
i.e. If it is 1:00pm in California, then it is 3:00am the
next day in Japan

Goodbye America!

Konnichiwa Japan!

  2. Bye, bye, hope your flight is uneventful and Jack & Winnie are comfortable.

    I miss you already, but at least we can keep in touch via cyberworld.

    Remember we love you.
