My housemates are back from foreign travels. It is good to have them home. It's been lonely.
Snow is melting. s l o w l y. Life moves on.
Working in the non-profit sector has its interesting moments. One odd thing is the 403b. You may have a 401k, but I have a 403b. And they aren't the same.
For reasons to arcane and enigmatic, I cannot cash out my teeny tiny 403b that was going to pay my offspring's tuition this semester. I am screwed. Royally.
Somehow I will make it happen. But today, I know not how. Ugh.
On Christmas day (in the midst of a really big snow storm) my children, and their mom, and I went out to eat, as we've done every year for the past couple of decades. Every Christmas. Only two places have been so honored to host us on these occasions, one in the small town where we once lived, and the other where I (we all) now live. Fancy. Expensive. Tradition!
The latter establishment has, in its expansive lobby, two huge fireplaces. Really big. The picture above tells it all.
Stay warm, friends. Hope you've someone to stay warm with! Cheers.
