Today continued the trend toward domesticity. Carter is still on holiday from school and Caiden stayed home because Briton is taking them to the beach for 4 or 5 days. Well, Kusnadi is taking them, really. The hours after breakfast for us were filled with grandsons – watching them play sort of together; playing with them; collecting boogers – while Briton finished packing. It’s probably a good thing we decided to join them Friday with Jon because there was no way 2 more adults and even a little suitcase were going to fit in the van. It was a cross between Toys-R-Us and a grocery store.
We all had an early lunch [leftover soup for the adults and chicken nuggets for the boys] and then, suddenly, it was deathly quiet. We spent the afternoon reading, checking the computer and maybe napping, but just a little. At our request, Mariati prepared an omelet with onions and grated cheese. It came out as more of a frittata, but it was just what we wanted. We scrounged for something for dessert after cleaning up. We spent the rest of the evening reading. Life in the fast lane.
D’s “sit”-uation has improved a little but he is going to call the doctor in the morning to see if she is satisfied with his progress or wants to switch to antibiotics; since we always carry Cipro with us, that won’t be a problem. We continue to ponder where this fungus came from and have isolated 2 meals where we did not all eat the same food. The speculation is pointless since we will never know.
Tomorrow we may do a little shopping or visit the doctor. Kusnadi will be back and on call in the early afternoon. Jon is away tonight in Surabaya, the country’s second largest city, and will be home around 7:30 tomorrow night. It’s so quiet now that I may fall asleep at the keybbbbbbbbbbbbbbb
