This is the final day of 2015. How was your year? We all stayed healthy here until the end of the year. I got a bad cold around the 20th of this month and I still have it. I had a fever or about a week and it finally went down today. I went to the my favorite doctor, Ishibashi, in Ageo, and got a check up and some medicine. So, the fever is gone but I still have sore throat and a slightly runny nose. But, the rest of the year was good. I got two new jobs at kindergartens and Kids Day Care Centers. My younger daughter got a job after graduating university. I practice the violin a lot but it is still difficult. Bridge was a big success. We started with 11 MPs and finished with over 43MPs so that was something to smile about. I got my kids homework program together and we got the new chairs and curtains for the school. Perhaps the most satisfying thing is the empty lot next door. It sure is clean．I enjoy looking at it every day．How was your year?
