Having gathered family and friends from the four corners of the globe (literally), with the festivities completed (and they WERE festive!) it was time today to scatter the children back on the winds.
The Older Daughter had to be back at work this morning in Northern California, so she made the long drive back last night.
I was up way too damn early to drive The Son to the airport, which not only completely played “52 Pick Up” with their pick up traffic (taxis, Uber, Lyft, etc are now off in an off-site lot which no one can find and no one can figure out how to get to or from) but which also appears to be 100% under construction.
Isn’t it iconic?
Then the Younger Daughter and her newly minted husband, The Son-In-Law, took off for their honeymoon.
So as we speak, one is in a plane to Asia near the end of an eleven-hour-plus flight, and the others are near the US/Canada border on their way to Europe.
And tomorrow I’m back to the office to play catch up after the long weekend.
Time to go looking for a new normal, a new routine. It’s been magnificent, but I really could use a little bit of boredom for a few weeks!
