Last weekend turned out much better than planned. Not only did Oliver manage to escape the snow chaos on Valentine’s Day by flying out of Philidelphia in a chance window of good weather, but one of his meetings was moved to Monday, allowing him to extend his stay until Tuesday morning. Conjugal visits, gotta love that.
Tuesday was also Fasching, or Mardi Gras, my least loved holiday in Germany (I get enough of adults in clown outfits at Halloween thanks very much). Given that my husband just went back to New Jersey for at least a month, I think I know what I have to give up for Lent. 😉
Now we’re back to business as usual: long distance phone calls. Just a few more months and we can try a normal life again.
