i just got off the phone with mom and dad and dad mentioned that it might be possible for my Aunt’s and Uncle’s to come to the wedding. in the last few days i was starting to get real uncomfortable with the idea of my friends coming to the wedding – mainly because i don’t want to manage their time, etc. i would much rather have more family there and this also gives me a good way to tell my friends that plans have changed. i would definitely prefer that Eriko’s family and extended family meet my family. i have to improve my Japanese if i’m going to be able to serve as even the most basic of translators.
