On the other side of the country, today, my oldest sister is having breast cancer surgery.
If things go well, this should result in marked improvements for each of them. I could handle either situation individually with equanimity; knowing that both surgeries are happening roughly simultaneously is a bit much to wrap my head around.
So... I'm a little stressed and distracted right now, and the last thing on my mind are my plans for the holiday season.
