I... Continue Reading →

Oh, my little girl... she waves me off and runs into the play kitchen in Kindergarten.... "I will be back after lunch! Do I get a kiss?" Quick kiss and off I go to my alternative practitioner for reflexology and acupuncture, while I am clinging to my phone! Frau Kakizaki gives me a mild look... Continue Reading →
