Long time no post.
Much drama.
Huge re-org at work as my bank decides (finally?!) to take monstrous write-offs and get serious about a massive restructuring...no idea who I am even reporting to come April 1.

The GORUCK Tough-Light (endurance) event I had been training for I managed to not attend...as a I was preparing to leave for the start, kid knocked over a box holding several large metal poles (for a bike parking tent)...onto my head. Figured attempting an 18 hour endurance event with a possible concussion was a bad idea...

Then my daughter breaks her leg this weekend: spiral fracture of the tibia. Check my Instagram if you want to see some horrid x-rays.
So my workout has been carrying her 30kgs up and down the 3 flights of stairs to our non-elevator'd apartment, and between the toilet and couch and futon...
Rehab yesterday showed her how to use crutches, but she has the upper body strength of a 12 year old girl who lifts nothing heavier than her iPhone, so she is basically useless. And in pain.

Also one of the twins had his hernia surgery cancelled for the third time (always sick) and at this point the doctor was like "we're done, try another hospital" -- I don't even know how that works but like...aren't you the one who recommended the surgery in the first place AND the one who keeps cancelling? Like when is a two-year old NOT sick?

At least I have managed to keep swimming fairly regularly, and will hit the gym tomorrow to get in some much needed lifting-of-the-heavy-things...

And the weather is finally Springy! Everyone suffering from hayfever but mine doesn't actually kick in until the summer so I am good (for now.)

This weekend some (mellow-ish) events around Ingress Darsana Anomaly in Tokyo (if you don't know, don't bother googling as it won't help explain, and if you do know: "Resist! Tokyo Will Be Blue!") and then a potentially fun and exciting thing in April and who the hell knows what else is coming in this hurricane called life-with-too-many-kids?

Wow - that is a lot of drama for the Kuroda household! Time to get your daughter doing some band work to strengthen her upper body! One legged push-ups? Hope the swimming has provided some much needed stress-relief!

    Hope the work stuff settles positively! And the kid's leg heals quickly. Miserable.
    And wow - yeah no more hospitals for the Kuroda crew for awhile!

      Oh man. But this is what happens when you choose to have multiple kids. They should use your IG as an educational page for teenagers, you know for the contraceptive lesson. This , kiddos, is why you don't want to be engaging in reproductive activities anytime soon. I love the endless vids of your crying bubbas though. My daily fix of baby cuteness. Hope things calm down soon Chez Kuroda .

        Most important takeaway from this dumpster fire: your fault for moving into an apartment on anything but the ground floor in a building without an elevator. Seriously bro?

          Jeez dude that's a lot going on. Hope everything settles down for you soon and especially things get sorted with the kiddos.

              Super impressed that you did NOT attempt the GoRuck Light, it being only a Light, and you being you and all. Sorry to hear about the kiddies and congrats on the restructure. Hopefully they're shedding the bad cholesterol.

                Dude.........don't worry she'll have shoulder and back muscles bigger than yours by the time the leg is better after using the crutches (get some pads for the hand grip as the plain handles hurt!). I feel for you guys having just gone through all that with Gabe - it just sucks there's no way around it. Enjoy the peace and quiet of the pool man.
