I can't keep up with it all. When life gets busy, internet and blogging (which are already at the bottom of the totem pole) get neglected. I refuse to feel guilty about it. But there is a bit going on... here and there.
1. My mother had a pacemaker put in today. She felt better for awhile after her stent surgery earlier this spring (she didn't have a bypass after all--long story), but has been going downhill for about a month. She was hospitalized last week with fluid in her lungs, and the doctors decided that her heart needs a little help. That's all I know.
2. We are going on a family vacation to Yellowstone next week. The plan is to leave Sunday and visit my mom briefly that afternoon if she's feeling good enough, spend the night in the Blackfoot area, and then travel on up Monday morning. If mom isn't up to visitors, we may just get up uber-early and drive all the way on Monday (how many hours -- 6? 7? Actually that sounds like a bad idea to me), or we may still go and see my dad and his radical ski-boat rebuilding project. We head back Thursday. I'll post some pics. Did I mention I got a new camera so they may actually be decent pics? One can only hope.
3. The computer is resurrected. The power supply purchased for $14.99 from TigerDirect arrived yesterday and Tom did Nathan the favor of installing it. So we are a four computer family once again. That's kind of embarrassing, really.
Okay, that's it.
