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.
We all watched The Adventures of Milo and Otisfor 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.
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.
