Monday: Field Trip for Our Son, a Walk for Me

Our son went on a field trip to the Minnesota Science Museum today, getting home about 5:00. He had a good time, and was impressed by the Omnitheater. They had something on the Alps, I gather.

My wife and #3 daughter went to Alex this afternoon, to get information about laptops, among other things.

There were the usual telephone conversations between #2 daughter and my wife, and #3 daughter.

As for me, I got the household chores done, put in about 10 hours of work, and took a walk. That walk was unplanned. Around 2:45 in the afternoon, I noticed quite a bit of fog collecting in my mind, and decided to see if an extended walk would help. Besides, walking is a bit of a treat for me, now that I got the original equipment swapped out and replaced with two new hip sockets.

The evening proceeded quietly, and I'm going to cut this a bit short: It's time I start getting more sleep.

I wonder... what was unusual about the conversation between daughter #2 and the Missus?
Or am I being too nosy. :)

Are you "being too nosy"? Not at all!

#2 daughter and my wife were mostly talking about the stresses of a college term that's going through tests. Among other things, #2 daughter was upset because she missed some sort of evaluation - because she had lost track of time while comforting a friend.

I think it was a good trade-off, but I'm not the one who has to deal with an irritated instructor.
