Unacceptable Behavior

Before I start, Anne, are you sitting down? Yes, you, Anne, the one saying, “Me?” Are you sitting down? Wait. Get up. You might want a stiff drink. I’ll wait.

Are you back? And you’re sitting down? Okay. Good.

<deep breath>

Okay. I haven’t written in a while. There hasn’t really been much to say. Work, school, life… Most days look the same. Survived (okay, aced) my first semester of grad school. Now in the second week of the second semester. So far, so good. But I have this feeling things are about to change.

My boss had a stroke. (You okay, Anne? You were sitting down, right?) Yesterday he was doing okay. Today, not so much. It’s very much a wait-and-see moment today. Needless to say, there’s not a ton of work happening in our office today. It’s difficult to focus. We’re worried about him, and we’re worried about what the future holds. He’s messing with our plans! And by “our”, I’m including him. He planned to retire in a couple of years. Now? We don’t know.

Watch this space. Hopefully I’ll have good news soon. Hopefully he’ll make a good recovery. In the meanwhile, please send your good vibes toward Florida. His wife said she appreciates the prayer chain.
