My mother died early this morning. By this afternoon Russ and I were heading to Omaha to pick up my sister and niece who flew in from Arizona. I hadn't seen my niece in a couple years, but I hadn't seen my sister in seventeen years.
We had a nice reunion and a pleasant ride back, and dropped them at my father's house about 11pm.
It's going to be a hard few days, of course. I'm exhausted already, and I have so much stuff that has to get done.
Beyond that, I haven't much else to talk about tonight. I'm working on the 2YN class stuff, though it won't be much. And I'm preparing to sleep tonight and maybe a good part of tomorrow. Sleep pas always been my way of dealing with stress, and it works well for me.
But like anyone facing this situation, I wish it had never happened, and I'll be glad to have it all past. I suspect it's going to be both a fast week... and a very slow one.
