My trip to Boston to visit my daughter, Supergirl II, at Boston University was a total success. Too bad the photos I took were not.
We had lots of plans originally but
when we got together, all we wanted to do was talk. We shopped a bit on Newbury Street. She bought a little dress (size 4) which, I'm guessing, hardly had room in the bodice for one of my breasts. She's tiny, like her paternal grandmother, Bella. A most adorable little lady. I am 5' 6" and larger framed, though proportionately, both Supergirl II and
I have long, slender feet. I am the one with the red toes and no tan.
We were both a little discouraged by the unkempt nature of our dirty little feet, so we indulged and got pedicures. This is only the third time in my life that I've ever had one. I'm either a low-maintaince kind of gal, or, just plain poor. The latter, more likely, as I love having my feet tended to. I will admit to finding the experience heavenly.
We then had dinner at a yummy Thai restaurant on Newbury Street, talked and talked and went back to her dormroom and took a cat nap. Next thing you know, it was time for me to get back on the T, to the commuter train back to Leominster where my car was parked and drive the 50 miles to home. All together this trip, this way, is three hours one way. It's an hour faster to drive if you know where you're going to park and you can handle the madness of Boston traffic. I'm more willing to waste time than try my nerves, so this is my typical way to get to Boston.
I have to thank Supergirl II's dad, The Cunning Runt, for braving Boston traffic and the many hassles of moving a child out of a dorm room on the fourteenth floor of a dorm on Commonwealth Avenue; for in two weeks that is exactly how he will be spending his Sunday. I'm lucky. I get to help Supergirl I move out of her room at the beautiful and tranquil Mount Holyoke campus. Not so lucky is the part where I help move her from MHC right into a room at UMASS Amherst for summer session, on the same day. It looks like I'm not escaping my share of Crazy this time. Supergirl I thinks we can accomplish the move in one car trip. I'm incredulous.
