We have just arrived at the apartment we’re renting for a couple of days in my hometown. An extremely long drive for a very short visit, but it’s worth it — it’s the first time since autumn, 2003 that I’ve been here except for work. Unfocused Girl was 2 the last time, and Junior has never been. We’ll head out shortly for Thanksgiving dinner with my father and the family of an old friend (and my apologies to my other old friends in town who we won’t be able to see this trip; if it works out as well as we hope it does, we’ll do it much more often).
I hope you and your family have a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving.
