Today is my last day of free time (it’s not quite free, we pay 184 euro a month for the nursery school w/ lunches). Robin Kay’s school vacation starts tomorrow and lasts until the 9th of January.

I’ve gotten used to the quiet and am amazed at how her energy level seems to grow with her. My big job today, aside from the never-ending task of being a house maintenance crew, is going to be tarting up the race cars that go with her Christmas present to look (enough) like the Mach 5 and Racer-X’s car #9….
