Where is this summer going? Hard to believe it is almost mid-July.
That means I'm terribly behind on work things, and need to go into superhuman overdrive. Gah.
Big anti-whine: daughter got a fall internship in DC! Very exciting news, and it gives me a chance to go see the sights (and visit friends) as I get her settled in! The internet and some friends have been helping us figure out the metro, costs, places she might find short-term housing (safe, furnished, close to transit). Yay!
Now she is starting to worry about living in a big city she doesn't know. She spent an entire school year in a foreign country, but this will be the first big adventure that is not part of a program offering housing. I'm sure things will work out.
In more piddly whines, the closest supermarket is closing; they will move to a megastore, which is still under construction and nobody can say exactly when the move will happen. The market decided to stop stocking lots of goods, so it looks like the aftermath of a hurricane warning, with empty shelves everywhere. Grumble, grumble.
What's new with you?
