Holy monsters, have I really written nothing in a month?! Fie and shame on me.
My daughter's family is still with me as the search for a home drags on into its 3rd month. We're all starting to feel the pressure, but the alternative (them living on the streets) isn't acceptable. This is a temporary problem, and we all have to keep reminding ourselves of that.
In the meantime, the kids (including Bear) have started school. They seem to enjoy it and are doing well. The son in law is still working at the same place. We're looking forward to welcoming a visiting Japanese student, though we can't serve as a host family this year (just no room!).
There's a plan to go to the Ren Faire this weekend. We scored free tickets, but even so, it's going to be an expensive undertaking. And I seriously can't afford to underwrite this.
Found out that Baba had a stent inserted for a blocked artery. He came through well, went home the next day (yesterday). Bear and I will go and see him on Sunday.
