I’m back online !

For those of you who haven’t followed the latest developments after my last post, I finally made it safely to Japan 5 days later, I started my new job two weeks ago, and moved into my new apartment (with an included internet connection) yesterday. So things are slowly getting back to normal, or rather; slowly I’m building a new normal for my new life in Japan.

On unrelated news, Google+ has finally launched public pages and I made one for David + World. There, you should find, of course, links about new posts here, but also other extra info, comments and links, so do not hesitate to put it in your circles if you’re on Google+.

Finally, back to the things that are going on in my life, I haven’t told you everything in terms of changes and building a new life.

There’s one more thing:





I guess this is self explanatory, isn’t it?

    Oooooh boy this is going to get good. I’m going to enjoy this…. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    No, not really, because in 6 months you’re going start being sleep-deprived and stupid, and all we’re going to get from you will be “Sorry for not posting anything this month….or last month….what month is it?”

    Congratulations, anyway. I really am happy for you. My very best wishes for a safe arrival for the little one. What is the due date?

      Baby should be here in April (those pics are a couple months old).
      Don’t worry, I’ll never post to say that I’m not posting (I never understood people who do, either you don’t and you say something or you don’t post, but if you don’t post, I know you’re not posting, so no need to tell me).
      Sleep deprived? We’ll see. I’ve been sleep deprived for the past 20 years or so, so maybe it won’t make a big difference (although I’ve been good with this since my arrival in Japan, sleeping at least 8 hours a night… but that was before I have the internet back)

    Yeah, we’ll see….oh god this is going to be good… : D

    I remember my older sister laughing at my brother’s wife for saying she was ready for kids because they had already gotten used to having an annoying cat…you didn’t just compare new-baby sleep deprivation to being tired from excessive internet use, did you? I think you did….ha ha ha!

    I’m laughing out loud but I’m not really being mean, because I know that you have your in-laws living in the same city, which will hopefully be a huge help. (I didn’t get much at all. It’s really hard on a couple to live through that.)

    Oh my, and my previous comment about people moving to other countries and having babies right away…I really somehow thought that you didn’t plan on having kids but now I’m not sure why I thought that. Hm.

      No, I don’t compare internet sleep deprivation and baby sleep deprivation, I’m just saying that sleep deprivation is a constant in my life, although I’m aware that I have indeed no idea what baby sleep deprivation is like.

    • David

      I’m not exactly scared, if everyone else on Earth survived the experience of lack of sleep because of a baby, why not me?
      That and the fact that I never bothered my mom as a newborn and I strongly believe in genetics. ๐Ÿ˜‰
      (sure, baby could inherit mom’s genes)

  • Pomme C

    Or either grandparent’s genes! Sometimes strong traits skip a generation. You never really know what you’re going to get.

    One thing is guaranteed, though: love. : )
