I was also hoping Charmion could take the train but, of course, there are so few these days. LONG drive. And a long and stressful event, I might think. Thinking of you as I drive the 402 tomorrow to QC trying to beat the long weekend traffic!

Visit with friend lasted 5 hours and it was a lesson in what it can be like to be 90 and lacking independence, wanting to do what seems right for herself but the family wanting her to do otherwise. A great deal of repetition as she forgot what we had already addressed and it all changed between repetitions. Bottom line might be, "I just want to die" but there is depression and the lack of autonomy, loss of husband, and what the family is pushing without, apparently, offering any realistic solutions.

I am tired.
