No Stars, glad you are safe.
And I am SURE you are safe because of all Nannie's preparations!
You know if she hadn't done all that, you would right now be wading waist-deep towards an evacuation boat!
This too shall pass.
My mom told me once, "some people aren't happy unless they're complaining." True dat.
Yesterday was a quiet, contemplative day.
After MIL passed there was a flurry of phone calls; coincidentally and fortuitously we rescheduled band practice for Friday night.
Dh and I decided to go to the Thai restaurant (after 8 by now) and hear our friends play.
Youngest ds joined us and though we were a quiet lot, it was good to be out and to see him.
I sang a couple songs with the friends (at their kind invitation).
They are originally from Hawai'i. He is blind and is a terrific musician: plays piano, guitar, mandolin, banjo!
She learned bass to play with him (they have been married about 5yr), and she sings (they both sing).
They had a guitarist sitting in, for a trio. Total two guitars and the bass.
Chris Cerna Trio.
Very nice, a good distraction for us.
We stayed till 10, gabbed a little.
Texted some with oldest ds, who has the next three days off and is just spending some down time (contemplative, as with us).
This is the first close-family death the boys have experienced. Even though anticipated, no one is really "prepared," and it affects each of us differently.
Will be in touch with them, certainly, in the coming days and weeks.
Dh is still snoring.
I'm surprised I woke up when I did.
Couldn't get to sleep till 2 or 3 -- had to get up and take a shower, hoping that would help.
Finished reading a book.
Played a little spider solitaire.
Woke up at 8 and here I am.
I have the next two days off as bereavement days.
Dh and I have been discussing if we could/should get away for a little bit.
Plans are still up in the air.
Ds would have to be available to care for the cats, so that remains an unknown at this point.
OK, time for tea.
Have a good day, stay safe and dry.
