My father lost his battle with Parkinson's this morning. He was at home, in bed with Mom, like he has been for the last 50+ years, and went in his sleep.

While I didn't get to see him before he died, I know he's in a better place now than he was. No more wheelchair, no more unable to get up, dress himself, bathe--all those little things we take for granted daily.

Now I will head back to the farm and help bury him.
  • Mood: Pain
  • Listening to: NPR
  • Watching: Puppies sleep after breakfast
  • Drinking: Coffee at the moment
Contract ends 12/31 (no budget for an extension--official as of Friday), so I'm starting a job hunt.
  • Mood: Relief
  • Listening to: NPR
  • Reading: intro to celestial mechanics
  • Watching: under the dome
  • Eating: Crackers n Cheese
  • Drinking: I wish--booze on hold while out of work
