Boosterization Happy Dance

The teen has been boosterized! Yippee! Friends in other parts of the country talk about how difficult it is to get a covid-19 vaccination. Not here. Last month I received a text from the state health department, saying I could get my Pfizer booster, with a link to options for signing up. I made anContinue reading “Boosterization Happy Dance”

Homecoming

My college student is coming home tonight for Thanksgiving break. His roommate’s parents went down this evening to pick up both of them. Bob or I will drive them both back to campus at the end of the break. He’s a sophomore and is having a much, much better year than last year. Freshman yearContinue reading “Homecoming”

Photo Friday: Grandma Petrini

Yesterday I posted a photo of my grandfather Petrini with his army unit in World War II.

MyContinue reading “Throwback Thursday: Veteran’s Day Tribute”

HisContinue reading “Google Doodle for a Family Friend”

How Much Laundry Fits Into a Prius?

He’s here! I posted yesterday to say my son would be coming home today for fall break. So this morning we drove down and loaded up the car with his stuff and his roommate’s, almost all of it for both sophomores consisting of dirty laundry. Then we reshuffled and repacked until we could actually fitContinue reading “How Much Laundry Fits Into a Prius?”

Here Comes the Son

My son is coming home tomorrow! His school has fall break for the next few days, so we’re driving down to campus Thursday to pick him and his roommate up. We’ll drive him home, stopping along the way at his roommate’s house to drop him off. On Sunday we’ll drive our son back to hisContinue reading “Here Comes the Son”
