I stood in the front yard sprinkling grass seed on all the bare spots in the lawn and it occured to me:
I'm trying to grow grass in Northern Japan.
I paused and thought about it again.
I'm in Northern Japan and I'm planting grass.
Because I live here...in Northern Japan.
And I'll be here long enough to watch grass grow.
Ten years ago, I had different plans for my life. Plans that did not involve the Military or Japan.
Then, my plans had only recently started to include a hot blond BYU pre-dental student . But still...I never dreamed my life would turn out this way. In fact, I would have bet heavily against it.
But here I am! And I'm happy to be here with my three little boys and hot, not-so-blond anymore, Ped. Dentist husband in Northern Japan. With newly planted grass in the front yard.
(And a huge veggie garden in the side yard planted by afore mentioned hot husband!)
So now please satiate my morbid curiosity...
Are you in a different spot than you imagined ten years ago?
