Today our middle child went off to summer camp again. This is his third year, I believe; it’s starting to get to the point where I’m losing track of how often he’s gone. You may recall that this is the child with the heart condition, which might make you wonder how we can send him off to camp, until I remind that we are amzingly lucky and live sufficiently close to Camp del Corazon, which is a summer camp designed specifically for kids with heart conditions and staffed by off-duty pediatric cardiologists and cardiology nurses. It’s an amazing opportunity for my kid to go off to Catalina Island, which is a place even I haven’t gotten to go to yet, despite it being one of the first places I indentified as a must-see when I moved here 12 years ago. So we take full advantage of it and he seems to enjoy it, although—
In the meantime, The Mother will take said youngest off to Lake Cachuma for some quality mother-daughter time, and I’ll take a few days off work for a bit of a staycation, and technically speaking the eldest will still be wandering around (they have work, as well as their second week of college), but I’ll barely notice that one. So, a quiet week for me. Hopefully I’ll have the opportunity to catch up on some pet projects. We shall see.
Next week, something more substantial. Probably.
