Monday night dinner. Jeremy came home early-ish and therefore we had a great Asian dinner with some ingredients I got at the Asian market in the afternoon.
We are sitting at a tiny table bumping elbows because we decided that our table was ready for refinishing – deadline of Thanksgiving. Jeremy took the finish off last night.
While Jeremy was sanding, I drove to Virginia to bring Marta a wheel for her (well, technically not hers, but Caroline’s) broken wheelchair. You know how good a wheelchair is without a wheel? Not very. We’ve been in situations where Edda’s wheelchair has broken and has taken a million years to fix, so I’m glad I had a spare wheel to bring to her. I got to kiss a sleeping Caroline before I headed right back to MD.
Six month follow up with the ortho surgeon today. Everything looks pretty good, next check up in 6 months. Will followup in Jan with another doc about her feet and what to do about the bracing.
Vince is planning on going to go to Shanghai over spring break with a school sponsored trip. The school has formed a partnership with a high school in Shanghai – their kids are coming here in January and our kids are going there in March. You won’t really believe this, but we went to the meeting tonight and it turns out that the sister school in Shanghai is my mom’s old high school. It’s a little surreal that Vince will spend time in my mom’s old hometown. Granted, the island has really developed into an eco/tech oasis and the high school building is brand new and super fancy, but it’s a crazy coincidence. And my parents will be in China at the same time, now that should be interesting.
OMG, but the principal spoke for so long. The meeting lasted 1.75 hours to 1) get our name on an email list, 2) find out the cost of the program and 3) see what the general itinerary looked like.
