Ignatz and I are flying up to Utrecht this evening. He’ll go to school on Tuesday with the son of one of DrBob’s colleagues, and then have an interview with someone from that school at 5. Another interview at another school on Wednesday morning, and then Thursday morning we have an appointment to drive around and look at houses. Thursday night we fly back home.
That’s a lot of stuff to pack into three days. I should plan longer trips.
Anyway, this is decision time. If one of the schools accepts him, then we know that we’ll move to Utrecht and we can start making serious plans. If they don’t, a whole lot of things need a re-think and I have no idea what will happen next. This kind of uncertainty is exausting, so please keep your fingers crossed for us.
Song du jour of the day: in keeping with the Eurovision thing, let’s look at Shine, by De Toppers from the Netherlands! This is classic Eurovision fare, a vapid peace-and-love poptart that would have done well in the 70s or 80s, but I think its time has passed. Definitely not my favorite, but I might vote for it anyway. The Netherlands has been doing really badly in recent Eurovisions, and if they give up and quit participating, they might not show it on TV. And if I can’t watch Eurovision every May, I might as well go back to America.
