I’m going to my Mom’s for Mother’s Day after work. I need to leave today, even though it’s a 7 hour drive, so there will be a business day after I arrive for me to get some issues worked out for her. I worry from far away and don’t have the information I need to do anything but pass concerns on to my brother who lives closer to her, which isn’t fair to him. So I go, hoping the visit will hold some resolutions, laughter, fond memories, and that I will provoke as little anger as possible in trying to help. She has no internet, so I’ll only be online briefly from the nearby Starbucks, mostly for work. I’ll read and post comments and catch up on my own and other blogs on Monday.
