My life over the last month:
Mom fell, busted her good knee.
Lightning struck house. Took out the new television, the A/C, and any and all internet/wireless/whatever.
House was invaded by a mouse also a water moccasin – that’s a pit viper- as in poisonous snake. Probably followed the mouse. Fios dude came Monday. Orkin came yesterday. A/C guy coming today. Four firemen showed up to help Mom off the floor last week. We iced her knee. It’s healing.

I need wine.
And chocolate.
And a nap.
Possibly a week in Cabo San Lucas.
Will settle for wine.
