Today has been a busy day. I cleaned my room and packed and was finally reading a book and resting when my mom told me that we were leaving for Japan in three days…THREE DAYS!!! I haven’t even recovered from our San Francisco trip yesterday when we picked up my mom’s visa for going to Japan. We had already been there three times, and I was tired. Yesterday, I was happy to leave the cold, gray city (with the exception of a pretty little park), but we returned to hot and dry Citrus Heights!!! The sun has taken all the energy from me, and I am getting sleepier every minute. I went to get some cooler clothes upstairs, but I found that I don’t have any shorts to wear (because everything is packed), so I am trying to survive with jeans (long) and a tank top. I wish I were Elsa, and that I could make it cold here in California. But even with the heat, I like my room. It’s pretty with the sunshine bouncing off our tangerine walls, but I wish it were raining. And now I am going to Japan. I will miss my Tangerine room.
It is not fun to say goodbye. But on the other side, it will be fun to say hello to my grandparents in Japan and eat all my favorite Japanese foods. Three more days….
