Worked my usual Day Jobbe schedule yesterday. Spent 2.5 hours editing Kalimpura. Helped [info]the_child finish her draft of her school report on Nigeria.

Today, she has a lacrosse game, then she's singing in the choir at the memorial service for her friend's mother. I had to think pretty hard about whether I would attend that service myself. I finally reluctantly decided that it would be too difficult for me emotionally. Not an easy decision. Not at all.

Instead I'm going to have lunch with my parents, then pack for my trips to Las Vegas for work (Sunday through Wednesday) and Kauai with [info]the_child (Thursday through Sunday). I'm flexible for dinner in Las Vegas Monday night, while [info]the_child and I are available Thursday and Saturday nights in Kauai, if anyone there is interested in meeting up.

The following week, cancer follies begin in earnest. For now, I am living my life.

It's ok to go and mourn--even if you're really mourning for yourself.
