There's been a flurry of activity here since Thursday night when my daughter, J, called me with some scary health news that I won't go into here so as not to embarrass her. Anyway, the scare seems to be simply that, and things are okay, and she wants her mommy.
And I need to hug my daughter, so with the help of extremely low last-minute airfare from one of the upstart airlines, I now need to pack my bags so I can catch a flight to Orlando. Eight days in Florida. What have I been whining about for months? Florida. And I'm going there today.
Medical miracles, airline miracles, and the miracle of the internets. Pretty decent life we have here.
Not to mention the incredible principal I have who told me to "Go. She needs you." I'll be working all summer, but who cares?
