In addition to spending weekends in Jersey City, Al & I have been trying to alternate the weeknights we visit with Dad & Mom. Our schedules are so hectic what with commuting into Manhattan for work, driving to and from Jersey City, and making sure that we do sleep in our own home in Parlin every so often too. (Parlin is 35 minutes from Jersey City and a 90-minute bus ride into NYC on weekdays with high traffic.)
Tonight Mom shared that Dad said, "Maybe Sheelagh hasn't come by because we haven't given her a birthday present."
(Mom reminded him that he's got a couple of more days before wishing me a happy birthday.)
Nice to know Dad misses me during the day. Thanks, Dad!
