Well, I’m happy to report that the stomach bug has finally packed his bags! Fortunately my husband and my mother were spared. Unfortunately, I am now awaiting the arrival of a new bug after the news that Andrew’s Monday play-date came down with a terrible sore throat on Wednesday! I’ll keep my fingers crossed!
Now to the more interesting stuff. In the last few weeks, I have heard from 2 friends from the very distant past due to these posts and my website. With my call for comments to the blog, I got a shout out from an old high school friend. Hi, Marc! As a result of a quilt design search, I heard from a friend of my husband’s, whose wedding we attended 15 years ago! Hi Kris! As a relative newbie to the world of Internet communication, it’s still amazing to me how the Internet makes this world so much smaller and connected.
I don’t think I’ve shared this before, but all of my relatives except my mother live in Estonia. (Estonia was under Soviet occupation until 1991. For those of you geography challenged – look for it just south of Finland.) In addition to having various family members visit us in the U.S., I have had the opportunity to travel there 3 times. We are planning another family trip this June. I know that in addition to occasional phone calls and letters, they are also now keeping track of me via this blog. Tere! Like I said, this Internet thing is cool!
Is there anybody else out there that I know?! Let me know – I’d love to hear from you!
