will see it, because I know some don't go to the bottom. Sorry I haven't been here and I probably won't be back on until later in the week.

My stepfather died last Thursday and up until when the snow started, I was over there with my mom. It was expected, DH and I, along with my brothers have been helping take care of him for the past year. He was 92 and had alzheimers, and his quality of life had deteriorated to zero. He went peacefully at home and was in no pain. He and my mom had married for 35 years, and my father had died in when I was nine, so he was pretty much a father in every sense.

Also my son flew out ahead of the storm to audition for college, and now we are crossing our fingers he will be able to fly back in Monday night AND, we will be able to get out and pick him up. I am thankful it's not today, because there is no way we could get from DC to Balt.

Anyway, I hate giving excuses for anything, but there you have it. I haven't been at work since Thursday noon, and with another storm expected Tuesday night, I don't know when I will be back there and that's where I do all my board stuff.

From what I understand it is never easy, even when you know a parents passing is coming soon.

Yes, the storms have put a hold on everything.
