apt

Sooooooooo, about this week's quote...
 It is no secret that i hate February with a burning passion of despisement.
But this year i am finally so healthy and happy and energized that i didn't even give it a thought when the calendar turned. It is honestly amazing what a working (or seriously augmented by synthetics) endocrine system can do for a girl.
But February, oh February, you just couldn't leave well enough alone, could you?
In the span of 15 minutes last night i found out that 2 members of my team had been laid off and my mom has had a stroke.
Dang it, February; it was the 23rd.
I only needed to make it through 5 more days to report the first drama-free February in remembered history.
5 days!
Anyhoo, there have been several meetings to get work figured out and it will be okay in the long run; my biggest concern is that the 2 fTMs will be alright. I've talked to my mom. It seems like it was a minor stroke that has affected one side of the body, but not her speech centers. She's home, walking and talking.
However, the Nikiverse will go dark for a bit (i'm thinking a week mayhaps) so i can get things straightened out.
Be well and remember, only 81 more hours in Crapuary.

Sorry to hear about your mom-good to know that she is home and doing better!

My grandmother used to hate January and February just because of all the doom and gloom that went on-weather, deaths in the family, illnesses, etc. We could add March to that list too however with a certain little boy's arrival, March ain't that bad!

Niki,

So sorry to hear about all of this! Please especially give my best to your Mom - and remember to take care of yourself too. I am praying, and if there is anything else I can do, please let me know. Love you!
