Twenty Four More hours

The boy will be home in 24 hours. He was supposed to arrive on Thursday night but his midterm for tomorrow was canceled and so I told him to get the heck out of dodge right away. The airlines can offer a full refund and they were able to rebook him on a flight tomorrow….

It is getting scarier by the day

The pandemic is worldwide and getting extremely scary. The kiddo let us know today that he will be home until April at least. NYU, Santa Clara University, Skidmore, Berkeley, and SJSU are all closing now and the kids have to do classes online. I cannot wait for him to get here safely. I am sure…
