Ah… finally… the internet. I’ve been away so long it’s impossible to take up where I left off. I thought I was tired but looked that up in the dictionary and found out I’m really weary. ::whatever::

Two weeks ago last Friday my mother had surgery for stomach cancer. It’s her third turn to have cancer. Twice she’s had breast cancer. Last time a double mastectomy, the loss of several lymph glands and radiation. This time… very early detection and all the best-case scenarios. Bonus for her, they are pretty sure it was all removed during the procedure and no chemo or radiation. At lease for 6 months..

She didn’t feel at ease staying home alone so I’ve been there for a week … just in case. She’s doing great especially for an 82 year old woman. I basically cooked and took her to the doctor. No internet though and she doesn’t turn her air conditioning down as far as we do so I also did a lot of sweating.

At any rate, I’m finally home and ready for my real world to kick in. The twins are coming tomorrow for a couple of nights. Then I MUST look for a job. Yuck.. I hate working when I need to. Someone dear to my heart suggested Costco is a fabulously employee friendly work place. Perhaps I’ll start there.

Fourth quarter retail… double yuck. ::sigh:: I suppose if we want to eat and continue to use our air conditioning….

Missed you all!

Very good news about your Mom!

I have been thinking of Costco as well for my post GM needs; also perhaps Borders or one of the tackle shops...

I'm glad you are home, and wish neither of us was having to consider these other things!

Your poor mom. Poor you, too! She's clearly so strong.

I visited just because I wanted to tell you I name-checked you.

Of course you're weary. I hope you're getting rest. *hug*
