I moved in with Jason on Friday. I have until the 30th to clear out of my apartment, so we have time to make it nice and clean to get my deposit back. Jason is so sweet, it's been really fun living with him so far. I know he doesn't like keeping my hours, but he'll get used to it. :)
I cooked the night before last, and he cooked for me last night. He made some baked fish and rice and it was very tasty. And Ari loves it here. We have a loft in the master bed room and he spends most of his time up there. I'll have to post pictures I took of his little face peeking out from the loft to look at me. There's a huge tub in the master bath that I am looking forward to soaking in. :) It's a nice place...and I'm looking forward to decorating it.

My Grammy is still hanging in. She apparently opened her eyes yesterday and said her name was Grace. They are not giving her fluids because those are her wishes. She would not want to live like that. She may still rally, we will see. Grammy will go exactly when she wants to.

In my previous job at the National Defense University, I created the travel orders for the university. I got to know a lot of the staff because they do a lot of traveling for the government.
Dr. Robert Armstrong was one of my favorite staff members.
He was always friendly, and very charming. He made me laugh all the time.
He would forget his orders all the time and I would have to send them to him again.
It was understandable if he was distracted because he had cancer.
And the prognosis wasn't good.
For a while when I was working there he was very sick and missed a lot of work.
When I left NDU he was doing a little better but it still didn't look good.
I found out today that he passed away.
He was a Vietnam Veteran and retired from the Army reserves.
He was truly a gentleman and a scholar. And he was a spirited fighter, who fought cancer for longer than anyone thought he would.
I will miss him.
