Had to run—and have to run again!

Usually when my blog posting goes quiet it’s ’cause I’ve got busy, lazy, or some combination of the two. But this time there’s an actual, real reason. On November 11, fellow crafter/sewer Youngest Brother was in a serious car accident and has been recovering from a brain injury ever since. To spare all the gory details, let’s skip from there to the present: he’s came out of inpatient rehab yesterday! He’s walking, talking, eating, and joking, and continued outpatient rehab should help with some remaining memory and strength issues, but we’ve been told to expect a pretty full recovery. It’s an incredible turnaround considering the initial prognosis and really gives us something to celebrate this Christmas. The Other and I are flying out there again today to join Middle Brother, his wife, the Mother, and the Father, so we’ll all be able to celebrate together.

In the meantime, there’s lots to catch up on here, so I’ll try to post as I can. But we’re finally moving out of this cruddy apartment and into a house in January, so it’ll still be busy!

I hope you all have a happy and especially a safe holiday season. Am at the airport, so have to dash!
