A happy holiday wish to all of my fellow countrymen.
Dottie is home for the holiday, and Abby plans to call or Facetime from Senegal (assuming the Senegalese phone network and/or the Peace Corps Training Center’s wifi network cooperate). We will be having dinner with Steve’s family today, and lunch with mine tomorrow.
Tomorrow is also ‘buy nothing’ day in our household. This is a tradition we’ve been following for about fifteen years. I think we’ve broken it twice – once, years ago, because we would have run out of gas otherwise, once last year because Dottie needed antibiotics. Not a bad record at all.
