horses: nope - lesson called on account of medical issues and vile cold
Alice was home today, not exactly sick but not entirely well either. So we went out to brunch after yoga and had a nice visit with each other and Joanna, and then came home and went to the bead store. She has a very small turtle bead, and I have pink, orange and chartruse-thank-you-very-much 6/inch beads. That is bigger than usual for me, but I have a plan for them, so they got bought.
I took Aerin to Brattleboro, and she left me for another ride home!! Taken by a friend to the local gym and exercised aggressively on various bouncy things, she was returned to me later this even looking happy but tired. She asked if real life was like high school, with not enough time for anything. Why do all the best parenting moments happen 15 minutes after the kid should be in bed and asleep? We talked a little about scheduling and things to accomplish and homework and turning 15. Then I made her go to bed.
Al is in San Diego, which would be better if we were all there with him and he wasn't in meetings for two solid days and he hadn't dropped his cell phone somewhere during the day (2 planes, 3 airports, a taxi and a new city - if you find a lost phone in San Diego, take it to the US Grant hotel, please?)
Winter is back for the next day or two. I am unspeakably cross about it.
