Did my usual Saturday trip to my mother's house in Long Island this morning. On today's agenda: Help her research and fill out a form so that she can have her property taxes reassessed, and pull together all her 1099s to send to her accountant. Underlying all this was the knowledge that it was going to snow like crazy this evening, and so neither of us wanted me to hang around past, say, 3 p.m.

Much to my surprise, we actually finished by 2:30 and I was on my way home. Within 40 minutes (which has to be some kind of record), I was home, and lo and behold! a parking space right outside my house, which had to be some kind of miracle. It was either god making up for the stressful week I had, or the snow demons left that space there because that's going to be where there will be an especially large pile of snow, and they were waiting for a suitable victim. Or something.

Anyway, I'm home, and while the sources of my usual stresses haven't gone away, I can shove them to the back of my head for the evening. Jim's making fish for dinner (and I love fish, so I'm pleased), we'll watch some film or other on TV, and I'll worry about tomorrow...tomorrow.
