I ended my crappy day by watching a movie. As it happened, it wasÂ a very good movie called Stranger Than Fiction. It stars Will Ferrell and Maggie Gyllenhall and Emma Thompson, and is about…well, it’s about life and living it, but it’s the story of what happens when an author meets her character and has to reconsider everything she knows about him. You should watch it.
As to the day, well days go like that. No use whining. I am seriously – very seriously – reconsidering staying home this spring, giving Saratoga Springs a miss. Perhaps spend the time taking the kids on a holiday instead, or cleaning out the front room we’ve not occupied since we moved into the house four years ago.Â Traveling to the US doesn’t have to be a thing I do every year. I could go twice next year instead. Who knows. Just, suddenly, it sounds less like fun than it did a while ago, though that may change. Who knows?
