passing by soundlessly  
In the last few days I've managed to drop my laptop off the top bunk and lose my voice to some kind of throat infection. So I really have been offline in more than one way.

Yesterday I made a trip to a funeral home here in Seattle, an affiliate to the one in Virginia that handled my mom's body; I had to sign a release for cremation.

I was accepted into a housing program for recently homeless and people who are also working on recovery (sobriety). I don't know how long it will be until a room opens up, so I call and check in with them every day, waiting for a vacancy.

I feed the gulls, I take cough syrup, I read. Today is spray day again at the shelter. A fumigation lock-out until about 4:00 p.m. In the morning's frazzle I left my cell phone and meds in my locker. I'm killing time until I can get back in and then I'll probably burrow into my bunk and sleep for a while.

Need to log off the library computer now, so this is just a passing hello.

Hello, hello.
Glad you found some housing, hope it comes through soon. Sorry you are sick, that bites.

First lawn cutting of the year here at my house. I love the smell of cut grass but holy jesus, allergies. I'll just be over in the corner with a roll of toilet paper stuffed up each nostril.

*still listening, just keep talking....*

Thinking of you, and wishing that bunk burrowing was as good as hugs.

I do hope that room opens up soon, I'm so glad you got on the list! I'm sending positive thoughts your way. I'm sorry to hear you've lost your voice, that's a horrid feeling.

I'm going out on a limb and saying, libraries are good things.

You poor thing, I've just caught up on these last posts of yours.
(((((((hugs)))))) I wish I could send you my clingy spaniel who loves everybody and every critter too and would give you lots of doggy cuddles. I hate that you're hurting. ((((((((((more hugs))))))))))
