Life tends to "go on" despite whatever mess you're in the middle of, and this is the case for me this weekend. Every year, Russell co-chairs the funnel cake booth at his church's festival. In the past few years, he's needed my help more and more, and I've been more than happy to oblige. This year, in particular, he really needs me, as the man who has co-chaired the booth with him in years' past, died last winter.
And so, instead of dealing with all issues pertaining to my Mom, I will be up to my elbows in greasy, sticky, yummy funnel cakes. Updates to come, for sure!
