I've just returned from a whirlwind trip to COOOOLLLLDDDD Minnesota. Overall, the travel went well, even in the snow and the way below freezing. All my snow instincts slowly came back into play and all was fine...although I'm glad I don't have to do that all the time anymore.
Even though I flew into the Twin Cities, my visit actually took me to Rochester, home of the Mayo Clinic. My mom had knee replacement surgery there on Monday, and since my winter break doesn't start until Saturday, I had to come back and finish out the week - otherwise I would have stayed a bit longer. All went very well as far as the surgery goes. Recovery is a bit more challenging. She started PT today, and it wiped her out. I'll most likely head back to Rochester to be there for Christmas. BRRRRRRRRRR.
It's 9:35, and I've unpacked, taken a swig of Nyquil, and have crawled into bed hoping 5 am doesn't come too soon. THREE MORE DAYS...
A literary evening
