T. came home again. But I got my walk with M. (and the dog P.) earlier, so that was okay. I also did the one mile loop once by myself, which was good, because that and walking to and from Julie's Place later for dinner for the whole family was about it for exercise today.

My Dutch lesson was moved to Thursday and then canceled, which given T. being sick so many days is probably for the best. Before it was canceled, I moved my Thursday phone conversation to today, so I got to have that chat for about an hour before I got the call to pick T. up at school. We have pre-emptively canceled his day tomorrow, in hopes this will result in a more complete recovery for Thursday. He really wants to go on Thursday's field trip to a museum in Boston.

We've been talking about what we want to do for a trip next year to some national parks (this would be early in the year, not the hypothetical later trip to Yellowstone with my sister's family). We're currently talking about South Rim, because my earlier suggestion to go to Carlsbad Caverns was pre-empted. I was arguing that the weather in southern New Mexico would be more reliably better than further north, but no one really believes me. If there's snow on the ground, I'll laugh my ass off at them while I read my book indoors with a cup of coffee.

I'm also thinking, however, that we could maybe fly into Albuquerque, get on the Southwest Chief, ride it to Williams Junction, get on the Grand Canyon Railway, and then spent a couple nights at El Tovar. That would be so much fun I wouldn't care if it snowed more or less the whole time. We would fly back out of Flagstaff or something. It'd suck riding an American Eagle flight to Phoenix, but from there, we would have all sorts of choices.
