It’s time to pack. I just edited the last few articles for THE magazine, then I might pack a little more before going to bed next to Landon, who has been sleeping for a few hours.
We are sleeping in my childhood bed, which is tiny, in my old room. Landon and I will visit my friend Katrin and her two little boys for breakfast tomorrow, then we’ll take a nap (we nap a lot here in Germany, we are tired from eating so much good food!), and get ready to head to Hamburg.
My mother and L and I will stay at an airport hotel for one night because we are leaving so early for New York. I hope Landon is going to be a good little boy again on the plane, my little travel buddy.
This is the fourth or fifth time we’ve made/survived this trip.
It was another great trip, but I’m looking forward to our life in Westchester, and of course seeing Don and the Bleasdale clan.
Since our neighbors are moving, and with it Landon’s wonderful babysitter Antoinette, I enrolled him in preschool for a few hours three days a week at a new preschool around the corner. We’ll see how it goes.
If he doesn’t like it, or is sick all the time all of a sudden, I’m going to take him out. The building is brand new, and I am really concerned about all the outgassing of that building.
I spoke to the owner about the fact that all the new materials and furniture will outgas for quite a while and that it is very important to open the window to let in fresh air, but I am not convinced that this will happen.
People are so proud of their air tight/air-conditioned houses, they don’t even realize how toxic the air is they breathe.
