and too too hard to find. Fill in the next line. Everyone is well. Lots of running around with good news and bad. Yea - friend Janek got the job in DC and is moving here, - she'll have a window of 5 days to find a apartment in N. Va. near a metro line, any-metro line, for less than 1,500 all in. I set out to help her.
Booooo - Famb. went to N.C. w/out me because work was too stressful, had to finish out semester, and leg was hurting and didn't want to spend 18 hours in the car for a 4 day trip. I missed them but had some girl's drinks out and some of the first alone time I've had in 3.5 years.
Yea - got sent to training in Miami - brought the famb. Spent Mom's day on the Florida Keys sunbathing, watching Robert play in Sand while David realized that barracudas are really much larger when they're in your face.
Booo- More daily radiation therapy for FIL - in mountains of NC - being driven by stroke impaired MIL. Bad scene - will probably send hubby down to help with driving. Will miss him.
Yea! Bri-bear is expecting and I get to offload baby stuff to friend and grand-ma to be. Also take her to help navigate the schoals of Babies R Us. I got confused with Janek's moving anxiety with Bri Bear's moving anxiety and had insomnia.
Boooooo. Good friend and contemporary has stage f-ed lymphoma. I can't do shit about that but be there, visit, not look away as her hair falls out, listen some more, remind her she's a babe, and not press her too hard about how to help her young children deal.
Neutral: Getting sent to San Fran to be on a panel at a marketing conference. May get a chance to dine with ooooooooooold friends. Boo - famb NOT coming. Too expensive. :( I'll miss them a lot. But only 3 days.
So, Janek arrived here with her mom tonight, we finished up passing on baby durables to H&S, I depart tomorrow afternoon for the left coast, FIL continues Radiation and Friend continues Chemo.
I've been distracted - but I am doing the best I can and I'm thinking I'm an o.k. friend, employee and mom. that is allllllllllllllllllllll
