At first I was afraid
I was petrified
Kept thinking I could never live
Without you by my side
But then I spent so many nights
Thinking how you did me wrong
And I grew strong
And I learned how to get along
(from my favorite song, I will survive)
What a timing! As soon as I came back from Japan, my wife went on a business trip to Japan in order to participate in the FOODEX. This was her first business trip and her first trip by herself without children.
I counted numbers of our past trips so far.
First, together with my family, I went to Japan 3 times and California 3 times since our first child was born.
Then, I had business trip to Japan 14 times, Los Angeles 4 times, Brazil one time while my wife were staying here at Koloa with children.
On the other hand, my wife with children went to Japan 6 times while I was staying here by myself.
This means she had been always with children and I had never experienced staying here with my children for more than a day.
That's why.....when I first heard she wanted to have a business trip to Japan, I was afraid.
Then I was petrified......
I kept thinking my children and I couldn't live without my wife.
But then I remember I spent so many days and nights
And I remember I grew strong
And I remember I learned how to get along with my children.
Today is actually 6th day since she left. But I realized I had no problem at all without my wife. This is just like my parody of the song...because I have done housework for one year, I found myself doing a good housework job with my children.
I think I will survive!
But of course, I will welcome my wife back here at Koloa!
