Let’s do some bullets.

  • Younger Son was scheduled to be on a two-week business trip to Italy over Thanksgiving, so we decided to go to Sioux Falls to see Elder Son for the holiday.
  • YS’s trip was postponed, so he went with us.
  • Fun times.
  • We all watched The Adventures of Milo and Otis for nostalgia’s sake. It was a family favorite when the boys were young. We pledged not to mention the many animals that were injured/died during the filming.
  • Famous Dave’s takeout for T’day dinner.
  • My famous enchiladas for dinner Friday night.
  • I watched Particle Fever on Netflix Saturday afternoon. Fascinating! I love physics; if I had a magic wand I would wave it over myself to grant the gift of enough intelligence to be a theoretical physicist. As it was, I barely passed Physics 1 in college.
  • ES’s dog Moose attacked our Milady a couple times, even though she is the gentlest dog in creation. Poor baby spent most of the weekend hiding behind wherever I was sitting.
  • When we got home she toured the house to be sure it was as she left it, then hid under the eaves on the third floor. I had to lure her out with a dog treat.
  • Poor baby.
  • She is recovered now.
  • Lots of knitting time on the drive and in SF. I finished a cowl for the library craft/bake sale this Saturday and knit half a pair of socks as a gift. More on these another day.
  • Email from YS on Monday: he has accepted a job in Amsterdam, targeted start date September 1, 2017. It is with a subsidiary of the company he works for now.
  • He may never move back to the US ::sob::
  • ES is looking at a job with the Indian Health Service on the Zuni reservation in New Mexico starting next summer.
  • Well, I guess we raised those boys with wings, all right.

    Wow. That’s a lot of stuff there. Amsterdam is wonderful. You’ll have to visit often. (And, yeah, you did raise those boys with wings — and big hearts!)

    Amsterdam is a FANTASTIC city – and bravo for raising such brilliant boys! Well done, mom! XO

    When you visit YS in Amsterdam, you’ll probably be able to check off a bunch of the neighboring countries on your world map, too!
    Good boys, those. Well done!

    You and your family are so much more interesting than any links! 😉

    I have two with the wanderlust — one scamping about NZ and the other plotting her way back to the UK — the other is a bit more grounded here. It works out pretty well for me. 😉
