What a week it has been! My mom was in the hospital for five days with what apparently was a clot in her lung plus a touch of pneumonia. She is more frail than before, but I feel very blessed to have her home with me again. She was able to go to Thanksgiving at my daughter’s today, and a week ago, I wouldn’t have thought that possible.
We were a large bunch. There were 17 in all (counting the new baby who is now 17 days old). In addition to the family, my daughter’s neighbor and his two children joined us. Boise has been socked in with dense fog, canceling flights in and out, and his wife was stuck in Wisconsin. When my daughter learned that he and the kids wouldn’t be having Thanksgiving dinner, she invited them to join us. And isn’t that part of what Thanksgiving is about?
All of the upheaval here at home hasn’t done my deadline any favors, so I am likely to post sporadically. However, I must say that I’m enjoying the story I’m working on. That’s always a good thing.
I watched Batman Begins last night. I enjoyed it a lot. I think it’s possibly the best of all the Batman movies I’ve seen.
Oooh, and wasn’t last night’s LOST episode really good?!? I must admit that not getting hooked on LOST until the first season was out on DVD had one benefit — being able to watch one episode right after the other, without commercials and reruns. I hate this waiting between shows.
And as long as I’m talking television, do you think it is true that Simon won’t be a judge on American Idol this coming season? Hmm.
