Days of Christmas

Six universities, five flights, four hotels, three carry on bags, two rental cars and one daughter who needs to decide which campus will be getting our money next year.

This afternoon we arrived at my in-law's house and boy am I glad to be here. We left England four days ago and have since toured six colleges. It has been a whirlwind trip thus far, but has allowed the teen to cross a few campuses off her consideration list. Then she came up with the bright idea to ADD another one to the list late this afternoon... Ohio State University.  It's gonna be a bikini wearing day in the English winter when I agree to assist with a 12th application.

Tomorrow we will celebrate Christmas with my husband's side of the family, our first one where the younger daughter doesn't believe a big fat man is gonna deliver her presents overnight, and I am not talking about my husband sporting his red golf style shirt. As I said earlier this month, our family is getting memories in the form of a trip to Kenya in February (already booked) and a visit to China in April (in the works).  Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night in a king sleep number bed rather than the four hotel queens where we have crashed while on the road.
