Once home again, it was difficult making the transition from sun and sweat to cold and heavy coats again. We had heard that the temperatures had been quite mild while we were gone, eliminating the possibility of snow.
Now it is our time to give until we meet again feasts. My former TA and adopted nephew was home from the States over the holidays. Now that we are back, he is leaving for the States again for another semester at Trinity College in CT. We had he and his partner in addition to my current TA and all around guardian angel, Balazs over for dinner. The nephew and his partner were pushing through dinner to make a movie at 10:15. So much for “I missed you guys so much, I cannot wait to see you.” Just another example of the fickleness of youth.
