I have to hand it to you guys for keeping the torch lit. I bailed for a week. I had a crappy week last week and this week is starting out really, unbelievably badly. My beloved Boston was bombed, my cat continues to waste away, I just don’t even know what to do with this stuff.
Me and mine are safe and fine. Lots of my friends and family still live in the city, and they’re ok.
Two people dying is awful and tragic, but by the looks of things, the number could have been much higher. I’m grateful things weren’t worse than they are.
I’m grateful the student trip to NYC over the weekend was not a disaster. It was actually pretty good. I have great students.
The cat’s still dying, but he ate a little this weekend and so maybe he’ll persevere a bit longer.
