Checklist, Omiyagi, Rook

1. Getting all our necessary errands out of the way so we can relax for the remainder of our vacation.

2. Finishing three-fourths of our obligatory omiyagi (souvenir gifts) shopping. It reminds us that we still need to think Japanese for a few more months.

3. Settling around the glass dining room table and beginning the important task of working that Rook* itch out of our blood.

*We play a different version than the one described here, which is essentially a melding of the two variations my in-laws grew up with.
