Working from home

Well. I am working from home today. Sort of. Have been exhausted after the last few days of getting up at 5:30 and trekking into the city. Am trying to focus, but am easily distracted by email, the web and the tv.

Called my parents in the USA and spoke to all the relative. Lots of conversation about the weather. Hardest was speaking to my aunt. She could barely talk, and seemed to not be able to understand the conversation. I mostly spoke about my cousins wedding, but it was all bullshit. What do you say to someone who is dying? It is her 51st birthday today. Way too young to be leaving this world. I am glad I got to tell her I love her.

Tonight it is over to my grandmothers for dinner with the crazy cousins from Toowoomba. I am sure there will be plenty to laugh about tonight.
