back in the saddle

i haven't posted much in the last few days and commented hardly at all because on wednesday i found out that contrary to my most ardent hope and ingrained belief... meg still can't drive.

the doctor made a point of asking me to sit down before he told me. i have to remember that when doctors do this in the future, to construe this as a Bad Sign. i did, however, remember somewhere in the dim recesses of my remaining mind, that meg DID say she wouldn't be able to drive for 5 or 6 weeks, back when the surgery was first mentioned. so it didn't come as QUITE the shock it could've but it wasn't pretty watching my life disintegrate into the sandpit of time as the doctor gently delivered the bad news.

but it hasn't been too bad, just busy, over the last few days. the kids are all going away the first week of august so a few days' respite, at least, is in sight. in the meantime, ruth and i have plans on monday to meet at the new office and start making it "ours."

i can't wait.

and furthermore, the war will end. blessed be.
