Oldest has to apply to high school (the NYC school system is full of expletiveing bleep) and- shocker - doesn’t know what he wants to be when he grows up which complicates things (well, he wants to be a video game designer. But he doesn’t know how he would like to be gainfully employed and pay off his college debts yet), middle is trying to get me to be his agent (mom I met this summer works for Stephen Colbert and wants to use my kid on the show. Had to explain who Colbert was to kid, “Like Samantha Bee, but a man”) and every day asks, “have you had coffee with her yet?” And the youngest … is putting electrical cords in his mouth.
And my in-laws from England are visiting for 2 weeks.
So yeah, things are a bit odd/ totally normal here at the moment.
Airbnb: good! Have lovely guests in the private room, but realized I can’t rent the porch in the wintertime, even if i did get the radiator fixed, because we kind of need it to store our coats in. Whoops.
Oh, and also we’ve been protesting a lot. Offered the porch to some Dreamer activists last weekend but they didn’t need us in the end. Still, it was nice to know I had a good space to share with folks who are doing work I can’t.
Will dive into “latest” posts now, I may be some time…
