life should be easier
my wake up call this morning was from my friend to tell me his mom died. he's flying north today to bury the mom, gather what's left of her alzheimer's sister (stage 5 of 7), close up two houses and bring the aunt here to live with him.
i called another friend to let her know, she tells me her brother, who has lung cancer and finally figured out he won't be able to continue working through all the chemo, called his boss yesterday to tell him he'll be taking off on disability. instead of a return call, he received a midnight email last night: "your job has been eliminated."
think i'll do some gardening today. life should be easier.
