Fridays are for Lists
In case any of our few, but cherished, readers are under the impression that we’ve moved the authorship of this blog entirely to the half of our family residing in Germany—–I’m still here. I even read Dale’s posts and think about writing my own. Obviously I do not actually write these posts. However, I will share with you a list of the things I have thought about blogging but have not:
- Benadryl. If you plan on taking a small person on a transatlantic flight, get some NOW. One dose, 45 minutes before takeoff, and voila! Kid sleeps, you rest, and everyone shows up on the other side of the pond in good humor and ready to play.
- Kids skiing. Small people, bundled up in snow gear and ski goggles, hitting the small slopes and practicing on moving-walkway-style ski lifts and t-bar carousels. Awesomeness.
- Emigrating. Should we?
- Dog. Should we?
- On being a pedestrian. Where there are sidewalks and storefronts, I will gladly walk. Open expanses of ick (being defined as parking lot, industrial area, empty lot) reduce the psychological comfort of walking through a city.
- On being a pedestrian in the snow. Walking in a snowy city is easier than driving in a snowy city. Added features–you know where every dog in town does their business; the slush on the floors of public transport is deep enough for kids to drown in. You have an excuse to wear every knitted item you packed.
- Tenure: lookin’ good.
