My stepdad's mom had to be taken off her ventilator today. She'd been battling double pneumonia, and her windpipe collapsed. I never met her, and I'm sorry about that, because she seemed really cool. Well into her nineties, she exercised every day, smoked like a chimney, and could match wits with anyone over anything. What a gift, to be lucid and active for so long. At least she didn't suffer.

Ray and Mom are flying to Arizona on Tuesday for the funeral and the settling of her estate. Mom's coming back Friday, which is my sister's birthday (and coincidentally, the day I'll be spending a good while at the doctor for several fun tests). The following Monday, Remy and I will close on our house. We'll be moving the Monday after that, with Xmas right in between. Busy December this year!

Yeah, you do have some big things going on! Sorry to hear about the death in your family, but you're right - sounds like she had a long, full life.

Sorry to hear about your family's loss. :( Feisty old people are awesome.

Good thing I mailed your Christmas card when I did - hopefully it'll get to you on time. ;)

Good luck with the big move! (and of course you will have to give me your new address for stalking visiting purposes. ;)

*hugs* Thanks on all counts! Oh yes, even if it got here after we moved, the post office will do mail forwarding for up to one year. These days, you don't even have to go to the PO to set it up, you can just request it on the USPS website. Thank you, Internet!

And yes, I'll definitely share out the new addy once we're settled!
