I made it back to the States in one piece. Spent the first week with my mum and people I love. Had a wonderful thanksgiving, and soon will have another (which will make 3 in 2 days).
I still have a cold, and transferred my southern hemisphere germs around all week. Hopefully everyone else has an immune system that works. The only person I’m worried about is Grandpa, but we will keep an eye on him and get him to the doctor if it looks like he’s coming down with it.
Today is “black Friday” and I managed to leave my wallet at home, so definitely no shopping for me.
