...and this past week has been one of them. I feel kind of like this guy looks:
But I'm back home now! My travel day was...oh, crap. Trust me, you don't want to know. Let's just say it involved many, many hours, three flights, and Turbulence from Hell. Seriously. There was screaming, and it wasn't just me. Even the flight attendants let out a few squeaks. You can imagine how much I, flying-phobe that I am, enjoyed this.
(Actually, I did giggle through most of the bigger ups and downs, but I think that may have been impending hysteria.)
The good news: my mom has been moved to a medical rehab facility (they actually call it a "medical resort," which makes it sound kind of vacation-y, doesn't it?) where she'll stay until she can safely resume her normal independent lifestyle. This is a huge improvement over the hospital. She'll have a private room, and loads of help getting her strength back. Nobody expects her to have to stay there for long.
The bad news: TG's dad is going in for surgery today. He should be fine, and the hospital he's at is only ten minutes away. No air travel involved.
But it does bring to mind a comment my oldest brother made: "It's deja poo -- the feeling you've been through this sh!t before."
Um, yeah. Exactly.
Anyhoo, I'm now about to dive back into my edits, which I had to put so far on the back burner they were off the stove. Maybe even out of the kitchen. So if I'm scarce around the interwebz for a while longer, please forgive me. I haven't forsaken you (or your blogs)!
P.S. Sorry for the general lack of hilarity around this blog lately. I promise I'll think of some dirty jokes or naughty stories to share with you soon. In the meantime, if you have anything amusingly rude or irreverent you've been dying to share with me, please tell me in the comments. Don't worry if it's inappropriate. I'll probably laugh even more if it is. ;)
Happy Hump Day! (Heh. I said hump.)
