Sunday stuff

Hands: Horrible this morning and not as bad tonight but not good. I guess the closest I can come to explaining this is to get yourself some of those foam #1 fingers and place one on each hand. Then try to type on your computer keyboard. Handy, eh?

Oh, and add in some burning pain and more clumsiness as you try to complete other tasks like writing a note to your best friend in a touching birthday card. Seems a bit impossible but you have to do it. Now you have a tiny clue as to what this is like at the moment.

Siblings in Iraq: My sister is leaving Mosul (I think) to visit my brother in Baghdad this coming weekend. There's some sort of agreement that allows that sort of thing to happen for siblings in the same military branch once throughout their deployment. My sister had arranged for this a while back because she wasn't going to be home for his wedding next month; the wedding that was just canceled.

Brain thoughts: Jammed up and misdirected, spelling and typing off and multi-tasking almost nil.

Work: Parents are asking what is going on with me and I'm not sure what I'm allowed to say. I must go in each day early and drop off plans and pick up papers and such. In about two weeks I will be fairly free of all of this and then I can work on me and not work on work.

I'm sorry about all the hand issues. Maybe you should ask your supervisor what to tell parents. I personally think that you can tell them the truth if you are comforatble sharing what's going on with them. When it comes up I am honest with my students and parents.
