1. I finished Blackout. Aieeeee! It's the first part of a two-part book! It's a bigger cliffhanger than "Is Snape Evil"! How how how will I be able to wait until October to find out what happens? Is Mr. Dunworhty OK?

2. Here are my Blackout musings, under a cut in case anyone else is still reading the magnificence that is this book. Read more... )

3. HtB went to observe the police dispatch office last night. He had a great time. He's thinking about applying for a job as a dispatcher if one comes open. It's four months of training, but you get hired before you get trained, so he would be getting paid during that time. Now there just has to be an opening.

4. Got Dad's car back from Lady Friend and over to his house for the estate sale yesterday after aikido. HtB generously drove it back, all tobacco-smelling as it was. He got it detailed before he drove it, but it only seemed to add air-freshener smell on top of the tobacco smell. No one but a smoker is going to want this car.

5. DtB's Lady Friend really really wanted Dad to go to a Super Bowl party with her. I tried my best to find a way for this to happen, but Dad has gotten much weaker and less mobile. He took a header on Friday trying to get himself from the toilet to his wheelchair and ended up with a black eye and sore ribs. I knew HtB and I had no business trying to get Dad into or out of a car, so Lady Friend said she could get her step-grandson, who we will call The Thug, to do it. In vain did HtB and I try to explain that it is not just a matter of being able to lift a certain amount of weight, but being able to move DtB without hurting him or throwing your back out, and that The Thug did not have the necessary skills. I tried to hire one of the CNA's who was off duty to go get Dad to the game and back, to no avail. I had resigned myself to letting Dad go off with Lady Friend and The Thug if he wanted to, but The Thug was not available. *sigh*

6. I started feeling sick last night and thought it was just because I was tired. I slept thirteen hours and woke up with a really bad cough. So far today I have had inhaler, allergy meds, Advil, and cough syrup. I really hope that I'm better tomorrow.

I hope everyone had great weekends! Olympics start Friday, yay!
