Note to self




The night before the college girl returns to NYC for the year sucks.

  • Knowing that I would be stressed and resentful if I had to prepare something, we all cheered up with the thought of takeout pizza and antipasto salad from Domenico's.  Too bad we drove over there, not realizing they're closed for Labor Day weekend.
  • Plan B, cheap and cheerful Chinese, only to open the plastic bags at home and realize one of our main courses was missing.  Thus ensued a ten minute phone conversation trying to explain our plight, more and more vociferously.
  •  Dr Who, season premier, the family entertainment standby, appeared to have been written by a plot-addled Dalek.
All this translated into an early bed time to me.  Good byes are just too damn hard.

  1. I could say it's not forever, but of course in ways it is. You and I both know that because we left, too.

  3. K: The upside is a bickering-free zone until her return in December :)

  4. Oh, don't stop bickering entirely between now and December. Bickering is a muscle and you have to keep it well exercised, else you'll lose all the Christmas arguments.

  5. I have a hard time believing Desiree loses many arguments.
