Been dealing with minor emergencies since I drove up to be with my mother last evening. Thanks to my brother-in-law, who knows everything, that particular one is solved. Sweet.
I have been on the go since 6:15 this morning. I was running around to get the parts to solve that emergency, taking Mom to a hair appointment, dropping off commemorative cd's to Colin and Kate at K-Rock, taking Mom to the bank, to the doctor,to lunch, to the first drug store, then the second, to get groceries, then to a nearby fruit and vegetable stand, then to 2 bakeries, and finally to a meat market before returning her home. Once again, a 78-year old woman who uses a cane wore me out. I crashed on my bed for 30 minutes before taking a call from my sister, and then from Patricia.
No rest for the weary. I drove to the Port Williams library just now, whereat I type these silly words for your edification and amusement. I hope you're feeling suitably edified and amused. I know I am. I'm so amused right now.
I'm not gonna get into the details, but Saturday is going to be another trying day. We're dealing with issues regarding Dad's estate. I'll leave it at that if you don't mind.
Dad is gone now, and that has to be accepted. I started wearing his Bulova watch a few weeks ago, and it feels right on my wrist. He seems a little closer to me somehow.
Think I'll go crawl into a corner and sleep for 12 hours or so.
Right after I troll kijiji for a while.
