A Day of Firsts

Today was the first day of 2nd and 4th grade for The Cuties.

It was their first day walking to the bus in a major city.

It was their first day heading off to school in Japan.

And it was my first day on my own, without my family in Tokyo.

So I did what any other Mom would do ~ wherever she might be in the world ~ I sat at Starbucks with some new friends and then we all went to Costco without the children.

Only in Japan, Costco delivers!  Woo Hoo!

    Costco delivers?? How does that work? You put it in the cart, pay for it and then it magically shows up at your home? Within hours or what? I think you’re just making things up now to make us all jealous! 🙂

    LOL! You pay for it, and then you pay again to have it delivered {not so magical, eh!}. They deliver it the next day within a window of your choosing. But since this is apartment living, it’s ideal to have someone else have to schlep multiple trips up and down, so I figure that’s the magical part! They won’t however deliver perishables. But the international grocery store here DOES deliver everything within about an hour!

    Wow, that sounds cool! Hope you guys are settling in there. Haven’t been here since the flights got cancelled! And, hope your daughters have a great year.

  4. Ahh, thank heaven for Costco! How fascinating to be living abroad. I am signing up to follow & experience your life in Japan vicariously! Can’t wait to check back with you.

    Warmly, Michelle

    I am so glad you are taking us along on this journey to Japan. I hope the girls really enjoyed their first day at school!! I can’t wait to see all of your other ‘firsts’ in Japan!

    On a sidenote – You need to start selling some washi tape for real!! I would buy it in a heartbeat! 🙂

  6. Was all the food that expensive? $200 for watermellon? wow. I’d go crazy in that store too. Looks like so much fun!!!

    Not all the food was quite that expensive, although everything here is much more expensive than it is in the US.
