Mom's boss told her yesterday that she looked tired, was she well? When mom told the receptionist that she replied for mom "I'm not tired, I'm EXHAUSTED!"
Mom had three and a half hellacious months starting in August and work is finally slowing down enough that mom can get her desk clean by the time she goes home. She is off this Friday, and next Thursday she leaves work and won't go back til January. And she's not answering her phone, either. I foresee lots of snuggling coming up.
