These have been a tense couple of weeks.
Joshua’s exam period ends in two more days, after which he will have a ten-day break before the second term begins.
I have been very quiet and very supportive during this period, and I have tried to stay out of the way.
Among other things, I have been doing lots of reading, and lots of cooking so that Josh can eat anything he wants, at anytime, day or night.
I have also been playing around on the computer. For instance, over the past couple of days, I have added categories (tags) to some of my old blog posts so that they may be accessed by subject matter. This task, more than anything else, has made me realize how profoundly boring I am!
My brother arrives late Friday afternoon, and Josh and I look forward to his visit very much. We’ll have all day Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday to have some fun with him. Josh and I need some fun, and my brother’s visit is just what the doctor ordered. My brother is very good company, and we will give him a splendid short vacation, sort of a payback for all the help he provided when we set up our apartment. There will be no painting for him to do on this visit!
The following weekend, Josh and I will go away for a couple of days, primarily because we need to get out of Boston.
Neither one of us can stand the place. It depresses us beyond words.
