Meet my daughter...

I wrote this about two years ago, about my younger daughter--the one who has just moved to Singapore, which is the current answer to the question that I posed at the end...

As the day of departure nears...

...but is still more than a week and a half away, I find myself more and more disinterested in home matters, but not yet quite ready to pack, so-- finding things to do in between...

It wasn't so bad-- less than a bee sting that goes on hurting for a long time, then leaves a painful lump for a day or two. On the other hand, OUCH! I was busy chatting and didn't even notice the last one... Sign in to see full entry.
