    I like the format. But I find myself voting in ways I don't expect.

    As far as the parent discussion goes...

    When I lost my dad I was strangely calm. When my brother called me to tell me I knew what he was going to say before he said it, really weird.

    My dad had lung cancer, and had had half of his left lung removed, and was not doing particularly well after that procedure, but at least he was home (with his current wife and my younger brother). He just did not wake up one morning.

    I left work and went over there to do what I could to help. I just kind of helped out with paperwork and we discussed what we were going to do for a memorial.
    I knew he was in a bad way, so it was almost a - relief? when I knew he was not suffering anymore. I guess my brain accepted that he was not himself anymore and I was ok with that.
    I just remember going to say bye to him, he was in the bed with the sheet pulled over him. I sat and talked to him and said bye, but I could not look at him. I did not want that to be the last memory of seeing his face.

    My mom I imagine will be much more difficult.
    Right now though, she is still being a total snot so I hope nothing happens. Then I will feel terrible.
    I just wish she would snap out of it, but she seems to relish in playing the victim these days.

    I got called at work at the Post Office when my mother passed at the nursing home. I left work, and went right over there. I found Mom in her room, in her bed....but not covered up. It's something I wish I hadn't had to see. Certainly not the final image of my mother I would have wanted....

    Me too. I've never seen so many people so frantic, except the parents who were remarkably calm when they were asked to step outside.

    It looks like the sun is going to shine today.
    Two days this month we have equaled or gone slightly above the average temperature. All the rest we have been below. Substantially below, like ten to twenty degrees below. I guess it's whichever way to jet stream curves. It would be nice if it would lift to the north so we can get a little of that southwest warmth. But not to the extreme, please.
