I'm off to New Jersey today as soon as court ends. Dad seems discomfited that I will arrive after sundown. Since when did he become religious? I'm annoyed that he's not more appreciative of the efforts I've made to be there. I have to accept that he won't be more grateful…but it's not easy. I will try and focus on the absurd aspects rather than the annoying ones.
In an unexpected turn of events, Kansas is feeding Tabitha the cat while I'm gone. Usually, this is TR's job, but he's going to be out of town too--and so is Pele. I tapped Kansas and he reluctantly agreed. You think he'd be happy to do me a solid…but it screws with the routine, so he doesn't like it. Oh well. She needs to be fed and played with and he will do it. Good enough.
I won't be in touch while I'm gone. I'm making a choice not to bring the computer or camera. I will have the ipod, cell phone and knitting, though. Mostly, it's a hassle to bring the computer to the courthouse. I also thought it might be a nice break. I'll have a notebook and I'm sure I'll be writing, but I'm going to focus on the family, reading and, possibly, relaxing. Not that I've ever found spending time with my family relaxing before, but there's a first time for everything, right?
Enjoy the lovely DC Spring, have a great Passover if you're celebrating, and I'll talk to you next week.
Grateful for: the absurd
