Sorry for the quiet around here. We'd been looking forward to a weekend of recovery from a long and stressful week, but were woken yesterday morning with the news that V's grandmother would likely pass away in the near future. We both babysat last night (I at the twins, V for a now 17-month and adorable Paisley), V didn't get home until 1:30, and her phone rang at 9 this morning with the news that her grandmother was gone.
So, we're now settled at her parents' house for the next two days. And they will be rough. I'll reemerge sometime soon; we'll get back home on Tuesday evening. Now I'm going to exhaustedly crash.
