Sam is coming home on Sunday.

In this post: Blog bugs, Sam in Los Angeles, pondering dinner.

Good evening, Howdygramsters! It seems there are more “issues” today with the posting and editing software on Blogspot because my email is filling up with copies of complaints and general hysteria from other users (see earlier post). It seems that nobody can create a new Text gadget (what we use to add content to the sidebar) or edit an existing Text gadget, which is true, for the most part, except that I’ve discovered a cool workaround. Instead of using the Text gadget to add content I use the HTML/Javascript gadget, which is functioning nicely and gives you the exact same published result when you save it to the sidebar. So just for fun every now and then I reply to one of those whiny user emails with my brilliant HTML/Javascript option and everybody has a brain hemorrhage. It’s a good day.

My mother-in-law was transferred today from Kaiser Hospital to a skilled nursing facility nearby in the San Fernando Valley. We’re not sure how long she’ll have to be be there (maybe a week?) before she’s released to go home with 24-hour live-in caregivers. Sam is still in Los Angeles ... emotionally exhausted, not eating very well (or regularly) and helping his siblings coordinate the details. He’ll be home on Sunday. Obviously this is all a LOT more complicated than what you’re reading here but it’s not my intention to annoy total strangers with too many details. You can thank me later.

For the moment I need to inject insulin and eat dinner because it’s almost 8 p.m., I don’t want to miss “Project Runway” — season finale, part one! — and I’m awfully hungry. My evening feast will include a whole frozen Lou Malnati’s crustless pizza because it has zero carbs and there’s nobody here to share it with, anyway. Ciao, y’all.
