New Stomps

It's official now — Yoko and I are packing up the baby and moving to Shibata on March first. Here's what our new neighborhood looks like:

This area has a couple of key features. Up in the left hand corner you see a big parking lot that is a grocery store. About a two minute walk away we have a Circle K. The train station is an 18 minute walk from the apartment, according to Yahoo! Japan. We are going to be on the second floor in a bigger apartment with a veranda. We went to the nursery school today and there is a kid there that the baby is nominally friends with. They seemed to get along well and all the women there seemed kind enough and not too shrill.

Big problems at work today, though. Do more, get paid less. The part-timer's dream.
