Another incredibly busy week. I seem to be getting into the habit of updating about once a week. But, this coming week I will probably be good with the updates because I will be spending an incredible amount of time sitting in the Washington office alone for really long hours. I am leaving for DC tomorrow and will be there for at least the week. I might be there for a while longer.
I have been listening to hours of “Krakatoa” by Simon Winchester, it is a really good book. There are twelve hours of CDs to listen to so I will be listening to it all of the way down to DC tomorrow.
Today is Dominica’s brother Joe’s graduation party at the Knight Spot in Frankfort. So I spent most of the morning playing with the kids and then Min and I walked over to the party around 2:00. We had a good time and got to see a lot of family. We headed back for home around 5:00.
On our way back to Ithaca, Min stopped at Walmart in Cortland and picked up Castle in the Sky which we have both been really wanting to see for a while. It is the other movie in the series from Ghibli Studios and released through Disney and Miramax including Spirited Away, Kiki’s Delivery Service and Princess Mononoke. We started watching it and made it most of the way through but Min got tired so we decided to save the rest of it for later. So far, though, it looks like it is going to be really good. We have been very happy with all of the other Ghibli films.
