Egor’s mom flew out to Philadelphia for a week of fun with an old girlfriend. The following week, she’ll return to Moscow. So, I must keep several things just as she left them for good luck (my own neurotic superstition).
We’ll be seeing her again soon; her next scheduled visit is in early fall. While Egor drove Tanya to El Paso International, I met with my folks and their best friends in town for the day. The short restaurant stop induced no baby crying and I checked out some lovely wedding pictures of their daughter’s wedding ceremony. I spent the balance of the day washing sheets and rotating bed linens so I could return to my old digs. The air mattress was comfy enough, but never underestimate the joy of having a bedroom door to close. The house seemed so quiet today, even with the baby making his usual racket.
