I was going to stay up late last night but around 20:00 I just passed out sitting here on the floor with my laptop. Awoke at midnight, drooling on my shirt. Climbed on the couch and stayed there till after 10 this morning. Thus I should be able to make it until after 10 tomorrow morning but I am trying to catch part of the parade so probably will actually go to bed at something resembling a normal bedtime at least for a Saturday night--like before dawn for a few hours at least.
Am planning on going Monday to the Yelm cemetery where Grandma Elsie's ashes have been buried next to Grandpa Milo's, who died back around 1975 or so. She outlived him by a whole other lifetime, practically. Never remarried but did have a boyfriend who was about 10 years older than she was. He died maybe 10, 12 years ago, quietly in bed. I think my parents were a little bothered that she would not remarry, but she would have lost some financial benefits had she done so; she also enjoyed her independence quite a bit. Of course she missed Grandpa, but she had very little trouble adjusting to life on her own.
This has been a low-key vacation for the most part. I stopped trying to get together with everyone I knew some time ago because after I got home I would be exhausted. It isn't anything personal if I am not calling you up; it's that I have a very low reserve of social energy and need lots of recharging time per outing. I will move back here eventually if I can find a way to duplicate some of the support systems I have in SF. I still know lots of people here but down there I've gotten the government involved in my upkeep and everything, and not all of it is portable out of state or even out of city.
I need cereal now. Fortunately I bought some yesterday.
