Some people have REAL problems.

So I have been working on updates for here and elsewhere, trying to get caught up with the work I missed with my multiple recent ventures out of town, trying to collect and catalog all of my receipts for the past year to give to the insurance adjuster so that we can wrap up that ugly business, (can you believe it's almost been a year already!?!) and then this evening while I was in the midst of working on some nonsense that seemed important at the time, I got some awful news.

One of my dear friends, (really, family by marriage,) went into labor and delivered her second child. She was a little ahead of schedule with this delivery, but not alarmingly so. This would obviously be considered good news, but then it was coupled with the horrific detail that the baby did not survive. 

...So there's that.

My heart breaks for her and her husband and first child. This is an unfathomably awful thing for anyone to experience, and I can't begin to wrap my head around how awful the experience must be for all involved parties. I feel utterly impotent and have no idea what I can do to help in such an immensely awful time.

I'll get around to more cheerful and amusing updates, including pictures and maybe even video from my trip to see The Admiral, her son, (The Captain) and attending his first birthday party, but now seems like the wrong time to go running with that idea...

Back soon, my little doves.
