I had a killer headache earlier, and it is better now, but still there.
One of hubby's best friends -- the woman who sat next to him in the community band he plays in -- died last night. She was diagnosed with terminal cancer a couple of weeks ago. She last played with the band on Aug. 24th, exactly a month before she died. She played saxophone and her and my hubby both played first part. We think she was 72. She was put into a drug induced coma about a week and half ago to solve her pain issue, and was never brought out. My husband never got to really say goodbye (he's not the type to go and talk to comatose patients). He will, of course, be out of the country for the viewing or funeral (we assume he won't be back in time), which will bother him greatly.
I was a maniac with the kids this morning, in part from the killer headache. I got to relax a bit this afternoon while the youngest napped and the older ones watched TV and played. It was actually something I needed greatly. I worked on getting study material together for my son's religion test, so I can help him study for it. The test is on Tuesday.
The "fix a flat" has held for the tire. That's a good thing.
I received the next part of jeconais's Gabrielle story, Hope, this afternoon. I will work on betaing it tonight.
I also got back 2 of my pre-betas for my Remus/Tonks fic, called, Together. I hope to work through those tonight, too, if time allows. *smooches jeconais and jenadamson*
Time for dinner. Then bookbag packing and final studying. Then the bedtime ritual for the boys. Then working on the betaing stuff.
