Last night, Jeremy was so excited about flying today that he could sleep until 3 am. Vince’s illness was improving rapidly; so much that he woke up, took one look around and said, I’m OK! I can go to New York today! And so they went… I dropped off Edda at school and then dropped them off at the airport. Vince gave me a bunch of kisses and said that he’ll miss me and that I can write him and we can still be friends and that we’ll have dinner together when he comes back.
Edda seemed happy to have the TV all to herself, no one elbowing her out of the way, no one changing programs mid-cartoon. Smiling and happy. Ruby, on the other hand, seems bummed. She knows what packing means. She knows that we’ll be leaving for a while. Poor girl…
