Post-bump post.
My mom's finally packed up from her apartment, seen off to the airport with my sister, and winging her way to Seattle. Will miss her- but not the stress of getting everything that's needed to be done over the last three months (medical and otherwise).

And of course found out Friday my Dad went in for emergency heart surgery last week. Talked to him Sunday and he seems tired but recovering.

I'd like nothing stress inducing to occur for the next couple of months please. What a weird, weird summer.

Blogging will be as blogging does.

Edit: Just a heads up--probably will be blogging infrequently for the month of September-- want to get some things written (a couple of articles, some novella drafts, some rpg stuff, and my board game rules) plus the ongoing job hunt. So I'll try to concentrate on that first.


  1. Hope everything goes well getting your mom settled in on the Left Coast. At least the unpacking is a little less stressful (unless you're looking for the silverware and have forgotten which box you put it in...).

    Glad to hear your dad's doing well, too. Huzzah for surprise parental surgeries... >.<

  2. I'm betting your mom loves living in the Pacific Northwest, after the initial culture shock. It's a nice place, almost like a South Bend that kept growing and thriving. Without the miserable summers and winters.

    And glad to hear that your dad is recovering from the surgery. It's traumatic, but so much less so than when we were younger. Best wishes for him.

    Hoping your year goes from 'weird, weird' to intriguing.

  3. Echoing those thoughts... best wishes all around!

  4. Hey Lowell,

    I'm glad to hear your Mom is doing well and I'm sorry to hear about your Dad. I'm glad he's recovering well, too.

    I had a question... do you have your Mom's new addy? I have a card ready to send her way.

    Take care,
