I was supposed to fly out to visit family in California for the holidays, but the nor-easter that blew through Sunday has adjusted our schedule rather dramatically. Our flight's been postponed 5 days. On the bright side, I love the white Christmas in Maine. It's also Nina's birthday, and Isaac Newton's, too, so there's much to celebrate. Unfortunately, my husband traveled a few days earlier to spend extra time with his mom and to work on a paper with a colleague in San Diego, so he's already been out there for some time. I keep reminding myself that we spent the first year of our marriage on separate coasts, while I was finishing grad school and he was starting up at COA. This helps put one Christmas 22 years later into perspective.
