rather uninformative update

Last weekend was long and difficult. Then things in Takoma Park started to fall apart. Then things in Delaware actually broke, as in femoral neck fracture. Not to mention the ongoing nervous breakdown V seems to suffer every B-less night, of which there have been about two dozen since the beginning of August. Rounding out the top five is the irritation of having no one to talk to about any grownup topic. Oh yeah, and the presidential campaign bugs me. There are also some smaller issues: the nondelivery of half of our curriculum for school (easy to work around, but annoying), church stuff that puts my social anxiety in the spotlight (unpleasant but whatever), and the (insert growling curse noises) tent zipper I still haven't figured out how to fix. At least murderers aren't dumping stolen cars in front of my house (my former babysitter called the police about this car). Anyway, I am sending good thoughts to those of you who can use them and trust you're all doing the same.

??? Who got the fracture? ??? I'm assuming you would have said it was V if it was V. You? B? Someone else on the street?

Oh, wait, you said Delaware -- a relative, then?

Whoever it is, ouch! And fast healing!

Thanks! Unfortunately, it happened to the slowest-healing relative I've got. My dad is diabetic, hypertensive, riddled with stents, on 24-hour oxygen, and now he's painfully waiting for the Plavix to exit his system so they can do a partial joint replacement. Jennifer is there now, cheering everyone up, and my sister is helping from afar, being all doctory, so there are two bright spots in this gloomy scenario.

Usually I say "Could be worse, could be raining" but of course it's raining too. Creepy about the car, but at least we now have a backup - Could we worse, could have a dead woman's car out front".

As for the election, it's been pointed out that no matter how contentious this election is, no one has to worry about being shot for trying to vote, so we're better off than about half the countries in Africa. I know that's very half full - but it's all I've got.

Well, look! I added a friend, that's a good thing! Nice to see you here.

So "Could be worse, could have a snake in the house" is way old now....

I thought about snakes and I've decided that at this point they'd be an interesting diversion. Instead of a "No Solicitors" sign on the door I am going to install one that says "Snakes Welcome". We'll see if snakes are any more literate than solicitors.

hee hee hee! Thanks for the laugh! DH flickered a smile, which is a hit since he, of course, hates snakes, so that's a compliment, too.

I'm sorry your life has been so...interesting! I will remember your babysitter when anything weird happens to us. Good luck with all the stuff in your life.
