We were supposed to go to Connecticut for my father-in-law's burial on Saturday. Well, obviously Nemo thought differently, so we have postponed it until next Saturday. With my father-in-law's great appreciation for the absurd, we were all pretty sure he was laughing at us and giving us one last "gotcha!"
Instead, 6 of us went out for dinner on Friday. (There also might have been adult beverages involved.) We swapped some stories, mostly hilarious. It think it was really helpful for all of us to relax after all the stress.
Also, my Medifast buddy was supposed to go to CT to house hunt for her move to her new job. She got stuck in Cape Cod at her parent's house with no power, but she was able to get to CT on Sunday. She looked at a few places that were promising. She is there again today. I am resigned to her leaving now. We just got an email about a half hour ago that the head of the library is stepping down in June, so we are in for some potentially huge organizational changes when they hire someone new or even during the interim. Everything could change a lot for all of us.
