Quick trip to my parents' house on Friday for my mother's birthday dinner. It wasn't a huge party, it wasn't a round number, but I made the extra effort to make it. As my boss commented when I asked her for the day off, you have to take advantage of these occasions while you can. Both my parents have assorted health challenges, and even if they're likely to survive these for years to come, how many more birthdays can there be?
Heading back to Ithaca pretty soon, since wintry weather is inbound from the southwest, and is likely to affect the end of my drive.
