A real title, really! Oh post 152..

The family restaurant only served two dinners tonight.  We (DW and I) had flank steak, mashed potatoes and a salad. The romaine lettuce for the salad came from the garden. The fall crop continues to grow thanks to this nice warm weather.

  Breakfast was served to four this morning. The oldest left last night. He should be flying home in an hour or so from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh. Then he has an hour drive to his house in Wheeling. He left his cold here with me. I forgot to thank him for that. I must have sneezed fifty times today. We picked up some heavy-duty cold medicine while food shopping today. This has slowed the sneezing down to a minimum.

The two younger children drove back to school together.  Ds2 is allowed to have a car on campus. DS3 is not allowed to have a car on campus until his junior year.  So they ride together whenever possible. Not having a car at school restricts the college students movements to where they can walk to. When your student lives in a city, that is fine. The middle child’s school is in a more residential neighborhood. Having a car is a useful thing since there is nothing beside the school that you can walk to.

For us old folks, the day was like most Sunday’s once the boys had headed north.  Food shopping, lunch, football on tv, a nap, some chores and dinner. Like I mentioned above the weather here was nice. I had the windows and doors open all day until the sun went down.  I have emails to send to DS2’s school regarding his impending surgery in December. My DW has to re-open her FMLA paperwork. She needs to utilize the FMLA because her employer will cause her hardship for taking so many days off. If you FMLA the days off, nothing can or will be said. And nothing gets added to your “permanent record” (uuuuu, permanent record). I need to arrange for time off from work as well.

Tomorrow might be a sick day for me. I will decide when I wake in the morning.  The final picture for tonight is from 2008. This a picture of the house where I grew up. While the house is no longer in the family, it still holds some special memories for me.


Home where I grew up
