At least, it's still Sunday for another 13 minutes or so.
My wife has gone back to the town where she teaches, but we had a wonderful week together and really enjoyed her being home. We didn't do anything really, didn't even go to a movie, but it was just nice. The Chinese symbol for happiness is a stylized roof with the symbol for a woman under it. (The symbol for unhappiness, somewhat less romantic, is the same stylized roof with two symbols for woman under it.)
At the moment, I am sitting up because my daughter is back in the hospital in. She had a particularly bad attack this afternoon. Her boyfriend is with her and will call us when we know more, and there's no sense in trying to go to sleep. I've been an inveterate insomniac for more than 30 years and I'm certainly not going to go to sleep with this hanging over my head tonight.
I suspect she has been working too hard, and worrying too much. It's very difficult for people of her generation to get ahead. I had life very easy indeed when I was her age, but the times have changed. For the worse. And they're getting worse. I wish I could say that's the normal attitude of older people speaking but in fact it's just plain reality.
My 31'st wedding anniversary is Tuesday. If my wife was home we would at least try to go to town for dinner, but since she won't be it will have to be enough to remember it. I have some nice wedding pictures I will try to find. People who have seen my pictures on the blog won't recognize me in those pictures taken so long ago.
Well, I'm reading The Savage Wars, British Campaigns in Africa 1870-1920 so I guess I better get back to it.
