Today's Activities Include: Ride Photos from Efteling, slightly sick kid, canceled play date

Today, T. was supposed to have a play date after school. The timing required him to be picked up, because if we waited for the van to arrive here, he would have been a half hour later. In the event, however, the play date's mum was ill and it got canceled, so then I had to contact the babysitter to let her know the change of plans and my son (to find out whether he wanted to ride the bus or be picked up still).

My son was surprisingly cool about this, and wanted to ride the van, so then I had to find out whether anyone had told transportation that he wasn't going to be riding, so that could be corrected. No one except my son had told anyone anything yet, so that meant I had to call transportation and tell them, yeah, I'm sure you wouldn't be taken in by a kid saying they weren't going to be on the bus but in case you _are_ (my kid is basically always right about this kind of stuff, which can really mess with an adult's head after a while because you start to trust him), please make sure you transport him home. That got a chuckle out of the dispatcher.

My daughter woke up with a head cold, but still wanted to go with the babysitter (no school in town and some of but not all of the neighboring towns due to Rosh Hashanah).

I used some of the time this morning to pull out the binder from our trip to Efteling and decant its contents into the files. Turns out that when you buy a photo (key chain or whatever) there, the code on the receipt can be used to purchase the digital download after the fact, if you didn't have the presence of mind to get the USB drive band at the time. AND, they don't have any trouble with credit cards (in the past, a lot of NL stuff really expected giro payments, which could make it gratuitously difficult for overseas customers).
