My Thoughts:

Last week felt like a cheese grater on my soul kind of week. I went into the weekend with no reserves and not even the ability to process anything emotionally. I was tired and hurting. While I can’t say that reading this miraculously cured all of that, reading this was like putting balm on a hurting wound. It doesn’t heal it, but it makes it feel better and helps with the healing process.

The first chapter is called Yotsuba!& Challenges. In the picture I’ll be showing you can see a fan translated it as “Duels”. Both are correct but I have to admit, I think Duels works better. Yotsuba and her dad are playing rock paper scissors and there is a pot and a rolled up newspaper in between them. Whenever they play rock, paper, scissors, whoever wins has to grab the paper and try to hit the other over the head while the loser has to grab the pot and put it on their head as protection. Yotsuba’s dad cheats outrageously and she gives up in disgust. Then she duels her dad in badminton and eventually her dad and Jumbo duel each other in badminton (hence the racket and birdie in her pocket). It was fantastic.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

        1. Thank you. Just hold off until Wednesday though. I get Thursday and Friday off due to Thanksgiving, so I should be fully able to handle any mention of “that guy” with days off under my belt 🙂


            1. Just a little time to be thankful that our ancestors didn’t all starve to death because they were totally not prepared 😀

              I’ll be doing a post on Thursday to explain it for all the non-Americans who follow me. I’ll give you the straight poop. (that’s the correct newspaper term right, poop? )


  1. Sorry to hear about the fact that your week was so miserable😢 I’m glad this helped a bit at least, and well…sometimes things like this do help, even if only a little bit😊😊 Hope this will at least be a somewhat better week 😊

    1. With it being Thanksgiving, we only have a 3 day work week, so that makes it automatically better.
      But it’s raining and is supposed to most of the day, so this might be a bit of a tougher day than I was hoping for 🙂

      1. Ooh…that’s nice! A three day work week sounds awesome (one wonders why that doesn’t become standard for every week😂😂)
        Seriously though: despite the rain, I just hope the rest of this week will be good for you😊
