Missing

Haven't written all week, doctor appointments, still trying to get glasses and now the earthquakes in Japan.  Our daughter lives 100 km, 60 something miles from where they hit.  She's fine and I know she's going to be fine, but I'm nervous, and I won't feel comfortable until things settle down over there, so I won't be joining in Five on Friday this week.

    1. I think you worry more when they're grown than when they were little. She's fine, though she said the night was pretty rough.

    1. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers Pat, I worry so much about her being over there and that's without any earthquakes. This morning (Saturday night for her) she says things have calmed down a bit.

    1. Thanks for thinking of us, heard from her this morning, Saturday night for her, and she says things have calmed down a bit. Many aftershocks after the second quake which is scary, but she seems to be handling it well, better than me.

    1. It has been stressful. I worry so much about her being over then anyway and now with the earthquake being so close I'm worse. She's doing fine, so maybe things can get back to normal.

    1. It is difficult having her so far away, we miss her and worry about her and this earthquake just upped the ante on my worry. She's doing fine, probably better than me.

  14. When I got up this morning and saw there and been a second earthquake I immediately thought of you. I hope by now you have heard from your daughter that she is fine. Hugs...

    1. We heard from her this morning and she says that things are starting to calm down. There were many aftershocks after the 2nd quake and the alarm on her phone kept waking her up so she's quite tired, but ok. I worry so much about her even when things are going well. I'm praying for no more earthquakes.

    1. Hugs needed and appreciated, it's been stressful, her city is far enough away that nothing has been damaged, but she says the aftershocks have been very scary. I'll be so glad when things finally settle down.

  17. Good to hear you have talked to Daughter and she is safe.
    In my earlier comment I wanted to ask....
    Do you have NHK News on your computer. It is in English and you
    can keep up with what is going on in Japan. It might help
    Also family and I have "Line" it is a free app that you and your
    family can "Line" each other instantly. Send videos and free calls.
    So that way you can talk quickly. Plus the stickers are so much better than the
    emojie (?) American phones use.
    We signed up with the Japanese one when it first started
    but they now have a very easy English signup.
    Lots of teens use it but it is very family.

    cheers, gayle

    1. I have Japanese news and Fukuoka News. My daughter put Line on my phone when she was home at Christmas. Plus she uses Twitter a lot and I get info that way too. I hate the time difference, 13 hours, always feel so out of sync.

    2. So happy to hear this. I assumed you did but I just had to ask !
      I use NHK because Sons Japanese Mum... The lady he was staying with when he studied in Japan works for NHK so I just have it on my computer. I love line ! Must look up Fukuoka News now !
