Chris's mom died yesterday afternoon so I'm going to be taking a brief hiatus from blogging. She was sick but it was pretty unexpected. The only solace is that she's not suffering anymore, but I know that's not exactly comforting to Chris and his family. This month has been a complete clusterfuck, even before this happened. This was the icing on the cake of suckitude. Yesterday was also Chris's older sister's birthday. His younger sister is in the Navy and was on a destroyer in the waters around some god-forsaken country. Her flight should be arriving right about now and Chris, his dad, and his sister are at the airport picking her up. I'll catch up with you guys next week.
