  1. This year the holiday is giving me stress….kid has school on Halloween, it is their Fall Concert Day (they go ALL day but then get the Monday off) and the weekend before I am busy with a bazaar at our church in Yokohama. I hoping Motomachi Street will have their event early enough on the 31st or late enough on the 24th because we also are thinking about going to Seoul after school on October 31 until Nov 3. I know, first world problems!
