I dreamt that CJ was home for an entire month, yet we only shared 3.9 hours of quality time:
- Vacation in Oahu (with three other families) – 33 minutes doing a jigsaw puzzle together in the early mornings.
- Screening of our old video montages after a cousins dinner – 18 minutes of togetherness on the couch.
- Shopping trip for hoodies – 23 minutes in the car and on the 3rd Street Promenade, broken up by marathon texting sessions and encounters with high school classmates.
- Orthodontist visit with adult braces guy. Yes, CJ could have gotten there by himself, but I went along and read magazines in the waiting room, as if he were in middle school – 29 minutes.
- Dinner at Thai restaurant. Conversation included analysis of Mr. NP's obsession with "Lost" and the origins of boba – 38 minutes.
- Packing for the two road trips he took (one to Mammoth, one to visit friends at Stanford) – 7 minutes
- Field trip to the Verizon store when his cell phone broke hours before he was due back at school – 43 minutes
- Ride to airport (does it count if he was sleeping?) 26 minutes
Since he might not come home for Spring Break, I'm looking forward to the summer when I should be able to clock 5-9 hours of quality time in four months.
