Time Flies

I used to get so annoyed when my moth­er would say, “Twen­ty years from now, nobody will know the dif­fer­ence.” She was wrong in a sense — I cer­tain­ly still know the dif­fer­ence, about so very many things.

On the oth­er hand, I do under­stand the longer view much bet­ter now. Twen­ty years seemed like such a long time then, and now? It’s so very short.

In any case, Katie did get home from her trip to the great north­west. She had a mar­velous time and thinks she has found her school. 

I’m real­ly proud of her. She planned this trip, to a place nei­ther she nor any of us had ever been before, all by her­self. She went with­out a qualm, had a mar­velous time, man­aged her mon­ey mar­velous­ly, and made some great new friends.

Since then she also went to her first LARP. Again, she had a mar­velous adven­ture, lots of fun, and found a new thing she enjoys. I think we need to acquire camp­ing equip­ment.

Sam has start­ed play­ing Burn­ing Wheel with a group of local peo­ple. He real­ly enjoys the game. I’m glad to see him get­ting out and hav­ing some social time with oth­ers.

I had a big thing hap­pen, but I’m going to stay qui­et about it a lit­tle longer, ’til it’s also a sure thing.

In the mean­time, I’ve found a nice out­let for my OCD urges as a “librar­i­an” at Good Reads.
