Normalcy

My much-loved niece, the Queen of Bad Television, is on her way at this very minute, on a bus from Washington D.C. to New York to spend her dental school mini break with us. She'll be here till next Monday and I'm excited to see her. I have a little idea in my head that if my daughter is off this weekend, we might even hop a plane to Chicago and hang out, the Normal family (inside joke), together again. Or else we'll just paint the town in New York. I'm in a house of mostly men these days, my husband and son and my son's friends. It will be nice to balance the scales with a little bit of woman company for a few days.

  2. Oooh, is she taking BestBus from my neighborhood (Dupont Circle)? I will be on that same bus, heading to NYC next Friday--I'm taking my mother and aunt up to see the sights. Neither of them have ever been!!

    1. SJ, I think she's on Megabus, but how wonderful to be taking a jaunt with your mom and aunt. Be sure to check out the High Line!

  3. Even the possibility of a jaunt to Chicago is exciting -- whether it actually happens or not. (And New York is plenty exciting enough, if not!) Abbe Normal makes me think of "Young Frankenstein," LOL!

    1. Steve, I think you might have hit on the Normal inspiration!

    Ah, the comforts of bad television! Enjoy :)

  5. People this age are a real blessing, aren't they? Their idealism and hope still fresh and everything possible.

    1. Vesuvius, everything possible. I love the very phrase. We can learn something from them when it comes to hope and idealism, I figure. Its part of why i so enjoy being around them.
