First the e-mail note and then the update.
E-Mail: Between travel to Boskone last weekend and my father-in-law’s passing this week, lots of e-mail got past me this week. I’m catching up on it today, but if you sent me e-mail in the last week and were hoping for a response, if you have not received a response to it by 5pm today, feel free to resend. The only exception to this is Big Idea queries; I tend to batch process those every couple of weeks. So don’t panic if you don’t see something from me on that immediately.
Update: I’m fine and the rest of the family is fine but we’re all very tired. It’s been an exhausting week physically and emotionally, as you may well imagine. The memorial was yesterday, and although there are still some details to work on involving insurance, Social Security and the like, at this point what we have to do is simply continue on. We’re doing that now. I suspect this weekend will mostly given over to doing not a damn thing except watching big dumb explody movies on TV. At the very least, that seems like a good plan to me. I’ll let you know how that works out.
Once again, thanks to everyone who passed along condolences and good thoughts for my family, and especially to Krissy, Athena, and Dora, my mother-in-law. They were nice to see.
