(hmmm. couldn't recall how to add a comment to the ongoing comment pile, SO am 'adding a discussion.' Duh.)
I wanna go to the DesMoines TCOYD. But. Mom (95) is fragile and failing pretty fast -- so my future is not calendarable, let alone today. Nor can I offer rides as a result of not knowing when I need zoom up to NDak for the funeral. ALL is in a suspension mode.
I'll be there if I can, fellow IowaDiabs. I need to go, get motivated, and have a change of pace from the care-giver/ death-watch (dear old Mom; I'm not dissing her, but that's what it feels like here) and move into the care-for-self-again/ Life-watch emphasis, soon.
