Post 1564 - A Long Night

Not long after I wrote last night's post, my mother took ill and I had to take her to the hospital.

I'll spare you the details.  I got back to my mother's around 2:45 Friday morning and was up relatively early.  I was driving over to the hospital with an over night bag for my mother around 10 this morning, assuming she would remain therein for a few days, when I received word that she was being discharged.  She has the flu with all the attendant symptoms.  She is home now, resting, as I type these humble words at the Port Williams Library.  Because of my own late night, I rested all afternoon as well.

Pretty busy here tonight.  Probably about 10 people here.  Nearly every computer is in use.  A girl is in the corner of the main reading room, where I usually sit, using her own netbook computer.  I am on the other side of the room, using mine.

Everything is relative.  The Port Williams Library having 10 or so people in it at once makes the place seem full.  In the city, if a library branch only had 10 people or so in it, they would consider closing it, and divert that money to a slush fund to pay for a big concert that would be destined to lose a ton of money.  I'm just sayin'.

Patricia left town early this morning to take care of some important business of her own.  I haven't spoken to her since just before she left the house.  I am confident I will hear from her soon.

I'll remain here helping out my mom for the weekend and return to the city, probably with my own flu to infect my co-workers with.  Such joy.

See you soon.
