Been crazy busy the past few weeks, settling into our DC apartment, finishing up the book, watching trashy daytime TV. Went up to Lancaster, Pa., yesterday to attend my nephew's wedding. (His dad, my brother Howard, gave a very sweet speech at the ceremony.) The manuscript for my next book (working title: The President Is a Sick Man) is due August 1. I'm headed up to Connecticut tomorrow to do some last minute research. Allyson began her training at the Foreign Service Institute today... At the wedding, my mom, whose memory is, uh, slipping, saw Allyson and asked me, "Who's the lady?" ... Our "unaccompanied air baggage" from Rome has finally cleared customs and is scheduled to be delivered today. I hope everything arrives in one piece. The cats are still adjusting to the new apartment. Mostly they sleep under the bed. ... Never had a DVR before. Wow! It's so great to be able to tape the Maury Povich show...
