The girls survived their trip to and from Niigata. They brought back the usual baggage, though.
This means that within one day we’ve already had arguments, a surprise latish night, and serious questions about the food I ate whilst they were gone. I’ve also been criticized for not eating something that 1) I didn’t know I was supposed to eat and 2) was buried under stuff where I couldn’t see it.
That said, it’s good to have them back and in one piece.
Now it’s time to settle in to something resembling normal and start thinking about the start of the school year, which may suddenly be more complicated than I’d hoped.
More on that in a future post. (Along with possible job hunting.)
