Dear Universe:

Enough already.

The deal on Daddy's house has fallen through after weeks of delay. That pre-approved financing turned out not to be worth the paper it was printed on, or much of anything else, either. No financing, no mortgage = no deal, no sale.

janeehawkins has cancer. Again. It's an early catch on lung cancer, unrelated to the colon cancer she dealt with last summer. Here's hoping for a similarly good outcome, but still. Arrrgh.

Paul Williams is dead. Lenny Bailes has given me permission to share some of his thoughts on Paul's life here. Watch this space, film at 11, and All That Jazz....

I'm behind on...everything. I'm not at Minicon. Or Eastercon, or even ConBust, a mere 40 miles away.

Getting things done will improve my ability to deal with the plateful of shit the universe is handing me right now.

Music will probably help, too.

Onward.

I am not liking this year very much at all. Too many hard things all at once. I'm really sorry about the house. Really, really sorry to hear about Jane.

LJ just ate a couple paragraphs of introspection in the form of a reply. Hmmm. Maybe later, or maybe a separate post. In the meanwhile, thank you.

Sorry to hear that the house sale did not go through after all your work. Hope y'all find another buyer soon.

Hope you get some cheerful news soon after the other depressing stuff you're dealing with right now. Hang in there.

Yes. What batwrangler said. *Hugs* Hang in there and lets hope things get better for many people soon. The housing market is picking up, so that is one thing that is headed in the right direction already.

I do not approve of the universe treating you this way. Also, I'm at Minicon and I'm quite sure I'm not the only person here missing your presence.

Well, damn. I had hoped your house sale would finally go through; my house purchase was delayed and delayed and delayed 27 years ago, but it finally went through, about two months, a replaced roof, and a big fat snowstorm after it was originally scheduled.

We've been taking a lot of walks with Jane recently. She expects to come through this cancer, but it's awfully hard to have this happen, on top of all the rest.

Many *hugs* to you, dear Geri. Sorry to hear all that. I hope your workload eases soon so that you can get to a con and get a solid dose of in-person friend-hugs.

Chris O'Halloran has announced she has a stage 1 breast cancer found early as well :(

So sorry for all you're going through. Wish you were here at Minicon so I could give you a big hug in person.
