We made it to Friday, guys! What a week this was though. I’m feeling a little tender, and not just because of all the awful recent news (although that’s all bad enough!). My beloved grandmother had a heart attack late Thursday night and I’m worried about her. Drew and the kids and I were going to go visit her in a few weeks — tickets and hotel are all booked — and now I don’t know if she’ll make it, and what state she’ll be in when we get there. I haven’t seen her in a year and was hoping to get one more visit in. She’s been so frail. My parents drove up to St. Louis to see her, and I would try to get myself there, too, but Jackson’s birthday is Monday and we’re throwing him a party Sunday — the first he’s wanted for himself in three years — and I need to be here. I know my grandma would understand, and hopefully, she’ll recover enough that we can spend some time with her when we come visit in a few weeks.
Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful long weekend — Americans celebrating their “let’s slaughter the natives and steal their land” day, and all you sweet Canadians celebrating Thanksgiving. Enjoy it all, and I’ll see you back here next week!
