My dad did just that. He waited until everyone left the room for 5 minutes. Boom. He was gone. He didn't want mom to suffer watching him go

ETA - sorry I'm knee-deep in tax crap. I should have started with I'm so sorry and I hope she is at peace. I hope your wife is doing ok.

PSS I know my aunt felt terrible as she drove back to Texas and my grandpa died. But I know he held on to see her and her kids. She got halfway back home and had to drive back. It is the way he wanted it.

I'm thinking my marriage has a lot harder things than bad food prepared by the other spouse. I'm super grateful if he makes me anything.

You need a better boss.

Yes, I know you are self employed, so this is self imposed.

Well, #2 has flown the coop. She is boarding her plane to Indianapolis in about 20 minutes.

I'm so excited for her but very sad too. I've really enjoyed the past 8 months she has lived with us and the chances of having a lot of time - like more than a week - ever again is quite slim. ETA: if you would have told me that she would be doing what she is doing, I'd have called you a liar. Yale told me she would likely be non-verbal her whole life.

Crassparents - she was in diapers yesterday. Boy that went fast.

#1 is a lucky duck as she hasn't lost power. Good pals of mine a bit north of Berkeley aren't so lucky.
