Yep, we are one of those families affected by the volcano. DH is still in California never mind that he was due back yesterday. Add in the small fact that he has meetings in Boston next week and I am wondering why he is saying that he will head back to Germany up to and including Wednesday.
If it was me, and those meetings were important, I would stay put. The winds blow east. There is no promise that another eruption is not going to happen and we could repeat this drill. With email, fax and scanners (ignoring the small matter of annoying phone calls from anywhere in the world) I am wondering why more is not done by VTC and conference call.
In any case, I am voting to leave him in place so that he can be inflicted on Ms Soprano this weekend. Nothing like a visit from your loving dad to insure that you really get to juggle.
Me? I am planning future cruises and lying on a blanket in the back garden with more paperbacks.
