Five Minutes

Lisa has a great idea for dealing with the too-busy-to-write syndrome, so I am stealing it: five minutes to catch up and that's it. Here goes:

9:56 pm: 1600 miles of driving in the past four days and my back is killing me. The Lovely Daughter is terrific -- what a joy to hear her funny stories of Life as a Camp Counselor and see how she has grown and stretched herself. We gave a ride most of the way home to a lovely young couple, counselors this year from Australia, so the camp stories multiplied several times over. Son is home from Spain, the only glitch after the ATM card being a delayed flight that cost him an unanticipated and expensive night in a LaGuardia hotel. He says that all of the good will, patience, and self-control of the passengers through many hours of security and flights sans IPODs, books, laptops, and toothpaste completely dissolved when the airlines, in a scramble to reschedule everyone into new flights upon arrival into NYC, announced that since security issues were the cause of the delays, they would not be paying for hotels. I had a lovely lunch with
Waterfall! and her sister in North Carolina, and met their parents, too! Over and out at 10:01 pm.

It's great to read about your children and their lives - a busy, wonderful, chaotic period with lots of growth.
