Message:  Great idea, Judy. Except I have nothing fascinating to report! :)

Things are pretty much status quo with me. My family is still groping around in the dark in trying to deal with losing my Mom. She's on my mind so much, especially as we're coming up on the first anniversary of her death.

Dad went to a wedding on Saturday, and said it was really odd to go to a big social event like that without Mom. I guess that happens after being married for 53 years. But he's working hard to keep busy, going to church activities and going out with friends so much, it's hard to keep up with him. I think I may have to put a curfew on him so I don't sit home and worry so much when I can't find him. :)

I work at a technical college and our enrollments are through the roof... record-breaking. We always get more students when the economy is bad. People tend to come here for retraining when they've lost their jobs. But this is like nothing I've ever seen. Well, it's great to work for an institution that is helping people in times like these.

We love you, Mamie. Wish I could give you a big hug right now.
