arneal Posted November 1, 2019 Author Share Posted November 1, 2019 Hi all, from mobile hotspot internet ... Spectrum cut us due to fire hazards (supposedly ... they best cut my bill accordingly as well! Grrrrrrr~ I work online so this is NOT okay!). Were without power for two days. I sat in my car yesterday morning, running an extension cord (thank God the car has an AC plug) to recharge my office laptop and several other devices. I was supposed to be off today, but here I am, online, getting caught up on the work I couldn't do for two days. Needless to say, the computer is not getting turned on all weekend. So sorry to hear about your dad, trying2 ... as our parents age, it's a tough thing. My son has his grandmom (my mom) and that's it. My dad was gone before he was born and his dad's people are not in our lives. His father's mom was dead when we met and I only saw his dad at the funeral. He didn't speak to me at all, but because he hadn't seen or heard from his son in over 20 years, he was in his grief space. I didn't need to be in connection. My son doesn't connect with his grandmom, but does ask about her. He called me the other night before the power went off. It was a surprise. Oh well, off to finish this work and get off the computer. I might have a mid-day shot of whiskey to celebrate Friday ... my plan is to get as much of LH's daughter's stuff packed this weekend as possible. I'm ready to close the chapter there for sure. I was pleasantly surprised to find a shipping and packing place, right around the corner from me. I think I'll use them to get these boxes to her. Support local!
