Debate Chaos

Today's Presidential Debate is taking place at Hofstra University. Courtney and Brandon's High School is right down the block from there. All surrounding schools and even some catholic High Schools that are NO WHERE near the debate sight are all closed today, but Kellenberg (their high school) remains open. All roads around the school, in which the buses use to take them to school, will be closed. The question is, when will Courtney and Brandon get home tonight because of re-routing and why are they in school in the first place???? I can't quite figure this one out and they are understandably concerned about how they will get home. The main road to their school is Hempstead Turnpike, the very same road that Hofstra is on. Someone hadn't thought this out very well.

Beside this confusion, everything else is status quo. I forgot to mention that this past weekend, we took Mike out for a walk. I can't remember the last time he was out, but it was such a beautiful day, we couldn't resist. He was actually looking around and staring up at the sky the whole time. As we pushed him around, he had a smile on his face. It was such a great day, in that sense. We can all learn alot from Mike. What so many of us take for granted, are the simplest of things....the sun on our face as we walk outside. Appreciate life's little pleasures and think of all those that can't.
