Ok. Got called home from work last night due to Mom throwing a clot. She will soon be taken to Cleveland.
I'll skip the riots we had over the weekend.
This does mean that Mom will not be home for Thanksgiving probably. Which gives me the option of NOT going home, since I have no desire to deal with Lisa's family. But I'll still send home pie.
I have no desire to go home anyway. I really am not fond of the Holidays, and I have no desire to be the 5th wheel at my brother's house.
