[ mood | exhausted ]

It's been a hell of a week. I'm going to be very glad to go back up to Washington tomorrow.

I'm sure people have heard about the fires here in Colorado. It's a fucking mess. A lot of Colorado Springs was evacuated, meaning it's chaotic as hell. So far we've been lucky and the fire hasn't reached our house, but there's no telling. Or at least there wasn't a few hours ago. The weather has improved some, however, so maybe things will get better. I hope so. I'd hate to lose the house. We've been there since before the kids were born.

Unfortunately, not only did I have to evacuate myself, I had to evacuate my mother as well. She insisted on coming with me. Joy. We're actually in a hotel at the moment, and I've heard constant bitching from her about everything from the location of the rooms to the quality of the beds to the attitudes of the people who work here. Luckily, she's asleep now. And tomorrow I leave. I'm just paying to keep her here until we're given the okay to go back. Of course, she complained about me leaving her here alone to fend for herself. Go figure. I'm sure she'll survive.

All right, I think I'm going to finally get some sleep. I have an early morning tomorrow, and I'm fucking exhausted. I just wanted to touch base.

Goodnight.

Since I apparently have the time, which is more time than I wanted, I thought I should update. I'm at the JFK airport in New York, waiting for my flight to be ready to board. I had an earlier flight, but apparently that wasn't meant to be. I just want to get out of here.

I've been in New York City this week for meetings. Walter was supposed to attend, but with his health as iffy as it's been, I, for some stupid reason, volunteered to go instead. I'm the only one there who was able to go who was qualified, so here I am. But it's over, and I can't wait to get back to Washington for the weekend. And I get an extra two days there after this as a bonus, so I suppose it's worth it.

It looks like Isaac is getting one of his wishes, however. He was given the okay to go back to work by the doctor, and while he's spent a lot of time figuring out what to do, he's decided that he's going to do it. That means we'll be flying back and forth together each week, or at least what weeks we can both do so. He's had reservations about leaving Penny and Ramon there, along with Puppet, considering things that have happened in the past, but after long discussions, it's been decided that he's going to give it a shot. There are people in Spokane who can help out, if needs be, and Penny insists that Isaac should be allowed to do what he really wants to do, as much as she'll miss him.

So I'm sure that Isaac will continue to be unsure and worry for awhile, but I can see just how much happier he is at the prospect of getting back to work. He's missed it a great deal, and I'm very glad that he can do it. He'll be starting back there in July and taking back the mantle of leadership. That gives us plenty of time to make sure that things are settled in Spokane.

I must admit that it will be very nice to be able to see my husband regularly again. It's been rather odd and lonely without him. The house has been far too quiet.

All right, I'm going to grab a quick bite as I wait for my flight. It shouldn't be too much longer. I'm not looking forward to how long it's going to be, but at least it's going in the right direction.

It's days like this that make me look forward to retirement. I suppose I should say that it's weekends like this. It's very nice to be able to sit back and relax without having to worry about having to deal with the bureaucracy that accompanies my job. The only thing that keeps me from deciding on an early retirement is the fact that the kids need people who care about them to be on their side, and these days that number seems to be shrinking instead of growing.

I have to fly back tomorrow, but at least I've had a few days of family time and relaxation. Thanksgiving was very nice, as always, and I've enjoyed doing all of those family things that I miss out on a lot of the time since I have to work in another state. I took Penny out Christmas shopping yesterday, and that was enjoyable. I used to hate going out shopping at this time of year, but taking Penny out to let her shop for people makes it much better than it used to be. She still gets very entranced at everything this time of year, and I enjoy sharing it with her. While I wish she hadn't had to miss out on all of that growing up, I'm quite glad that I have this opportunity.

It's actually quite amazing to me sometimes just how much having her in the family has changed this for the better. I think it's changed all of us at least a little. Who would've thought?

It's nice to have a three day weekend. It's even nicer to know that I have an even longer weekend coming up for Thanksgiving. The more time I get to spend with my family, the better I like it.

Work has been going all right. It hasn't gotten any busier yet, although I expect that in the not too distant future. This time of year brings out a lot of bad shit. I keep hoping each year that it'll be different, but it never happens. Some years are a little slower than others, but that's about it.

I have a lot that I could say about the situation at Penn State, but I'll refrain from saying too much. Unfortunately, in my line of work you find out quickly that situations like that are not in the least bit surprising. People keep their mouths shut for a lot of reasons, never thinking about the damage they might be doing to someone else by not saying anything. They worry about losing a job, getting a bad grade, losing a boy/girlfriend, etc. It's sick and sad, but far too common. Those rioting students have no fucking clue, and won't likely get one unless such a situation strikes closer to home. I wish I knew a better way to give them that clue.

All right, I'm going to go help Penny in the kitchen and then have a nice, quiet dinner with my family. Well, it will be nice, at least. Quiet is completely doubtful.

I just got back from the hospital, where I was checking in on Walter. He was admitted earlier tonight after suffering a mild heart attack. He should be all right, although he's going to be there two or three more days for tests. He insists he's fine and doesn't need to stay, but that didn't get him very far.

I do think that work might not be the reason he's been having problems. I met his wife. Therein lies, I'm willing to bet, at least 75% of the problem. Outside of the people I have to deal with in the course of my job, I don't often meet people that I take an instant dislike to. She's one of those rare exceptions. I have no idea what he sees in her. Most women would seem at least a little worried about their husbands in such a situation, or be at least a little sensitive, but she was simply a bitch to him.

I won't go into what she said. Suffice it to say that it made me want to hit her.

All right. I think I'm going to try and get some sleep. I told Walter I'd go in early to deal with some things for him. I have no idea why I offered, but I did. I must be a masochist.

Finally, I can sit down and put my feet up. I don't think I had the chance to sit down for more than five minutes at a time today, and that only rarely. I suppose that's an exaggeration since I had to drive around, but it doesn't feel like it. Regardless, I'm finally done and I refuse to get up for more than my basic needs. I might even go to bed early.

For anyone who might be interested, I finally convinced Walter to go to the doctor. Of course, it took me getting my keys and then taking his arm before he agreed to make a call. I waited to make sure he did it, of course, and then found out when it was so I could make sure he went.

He finds me pushy. I have no idea why.

It turns out that he has a congenital heart problem. It's nothing major so long as he takes the medication they gave him and does what they tell him, which is good. Of course, one of the things he's supposed to do is take it easy and avoid stress, at least until the symptoms he's been exhibiting stop. That's the bad thing. I'm not sure he knows how to avoid stress, and it's next to impossible in his job.

We'll see how it goes. He's talked about vacation time, but hasn't done much about it. Maybe I should be pushy. I can probably manage that.

Now I'm going to pop a movie into the DVD player and sit back and relax until I go to bed. I have everything I need, so I'm set.

It's that time again, so here I am. There's a lull in the madness that is work, so it's as good a time as any to get it done. That way I don't have it hanging over my head while I'm with my family this weekend.

I'm very glad that September is here. With all of the running around I do, the heat gets to be a real pain in the ass. There's also the fact that more shit seems to happen when the weather is hot. Of course, we tend to have a spike during the winter holidays most years as well. Hopefully this will be one of those years where it doesn't. It would be very nice to end the year on that note.

Walter's been looking a little off lately, so I spoke with him yesterday before I went home about seeing a doctor. He insists that he's doing all right, but that's bullshit. He's been pale and I've noticed his hands shaking on more than one occasion. If he doesn't get his ass to a doctor, I told him I'd drag him to the hospital myself. We'll see how that goes. He said he'd consider the idea. I'm going to talk to him about it again this evening and if he doesn't give me an affirmative answer about it, I will drag him.

Strange, isn't it? The first while I spoke about Walter on here, there was nothing but hostility between us. Now we have a grudging respect, and even concern, for each other. Who would have guessed? Him getting his head out of his ass did a world of good there. Let's hope it continues to stay there and that he continues to take his job seriously instead of pandering to the powers that be. Bureaucracy pisses me off.

I suppose I should get to making some calls. I have a couple to make and then an appointment in two hours, so I need to get ready for that. I'm looking forward to this weekend.

Just a short post since we're celebrating Penny's birthday today and still have some things to do. Becky's sister Amanda is in town as well, along with their mother and Amanda's fiance, so we want to at least drop by and say hello to them.

Things have been no more hectic than usual at work, which is a relief after the hell of what really wasn't all that long ago. I'm glad that the end of the year is rolling around soon and will definitely be glad when the weather cools down. With as much running around as I have to do, the hot weather can be very annoying.

All right, I think that's sufficient. I have a few things to get ready, including a little more gift wrapping. It should be a very nice day.

It's so nice to be on vacation. I like being able to put my feet up and just relax as long as I want. Of course, I don't do that very much since I like to be doing things, but it's good to have the option. After years of raising Mikel, it's a strange feeling even to have such an option.

Of course, I only have a few more days before I have to go back. Vacations are never long enough. I'll be pretty well refreshed by then, however. I know from experience that being away from work for too long makes me antsy anyway. I'm not sure what I'm going to do when I finally retire. It's something I'm just going to put off as long as possible, however, even if sometimes my job drives me crazy.

Next year, I'm going to see about a vacation for just Isaac and me. We rarely take vacations as it is, but I'd very much enjoy going somewhere with him to have it just the two of us. I've discussed it with him a little, and we're going to come to a decision soon for when and where we want to go. As long as it's somewhere quiet, I'm not too picky about it.

For now, however, I think I'm going to grab my husband and go for a nice walk. It's quiet out there, and a nice night. I enjoy walking at night.

It's a peaceful night here, which is very pleasant. Isaac and I just came in from sitting on the porch for a couple of hours, and that was very enjoyable. It's nice to be able to just sit and relax with my husband. I'm surprised at how chilly it is at night still, but I'm not complaining.

We spent a good part of today at Hoopfest, which was fun. Mikel, Charlie, and Isaac played and did very well, as always. They're all very athletic and very competitive, and the fact that they're all tall was also a big help. I think they intimidated their opponents just by walking onto the little court. Of course, that's not unusual with the three of them. I'm very happy that Isaac was able to take part and have fun. He went so long without being able to be too active, and it was nice to see him back to his old self in that way.

I don't think I'm going to post anything more. I might stray into work things, and I don't want to stress the night out with that. It's not terrible, but I'd rather not think of work. I'll see if Isaac wants to make his post, and then maybe we can sit and watch a movie or listen to some music. Neither of us is tired enough to go to bed, and it'll be nice to spend some more one on one time.

I have a few minutes before I have to get to a meeting, so I suppose I should take that time to get this done. I was going to post this weekend, but Ramon graduated Sunday, so there was a lot of celebration and so I forgot.

I was very happy to be able to watch Ramon graduate, and I'm very proud of him. I wish that all kids who come from such terrible situations could get to where he is. Far too many are lost in the shuffle, and that's a national tragedy. I only wish that more people would recognize just how important it is to help all children get the help and education they need to make it in the world. Unfortunately, too many people consider it not their problem and prefer that money and resources go elsewhere. I'll never understand the mindset that puts education so far back on the list of priorities.

I've solidified the dates for my vacation this summer, which is nice to have done. I'll be taking the first two weeks of July off to spend in Washington with my family. It'll be very nice to not have any work stress hanging over my head. We've made a few plans on what we want to do, although most of it will just be played by ear. We don't need to do anything too spectacular. I'll be very happy just being with my family and away from the office. I'll likely be driving up instead of flying as well. That will save a little money on airfare, and I enjoy the drive. The difficult part is getting through the rest of this month. I'm anxiously awaiting July.

I see people moving toward the meeting room, so I should get going there myself, I guess. I just love wasting my time in meetings where very little that's productive gets done. Really.

It's very nice to have a three day weekend. Normally I'd be packing now and getting ready to head to the airport, but I have another day to go for that. That's quite a good feeling.

We're going to try and have a barbecue tomorrow, if the weather cooperates. Penny suggested it, and it quickly got taken up by everyone, and we've been preparing for it. Hopefully everyone can show, but I'm sure that most will be able to, at least. We've got a list circulating of things people can bring. With this crew, plenty of food is needed. It's hard enough to feed just my family sometimes with as much as they eat. Adding all of the rest of the group would break the bank. It's a good thing we have a big backyard out there with everyone that might show up. That leaves us only the weather to worry about. However, if it decides to rain, we have some backups for that, so long as it isn't pouring and too nasty. I suppose if the weather makes it too unpleasant to do it outside, we can just do it indoors. It'll be crowded, but that's nothing new to any of us.

I've been able to confirm a two week vacation this summer, although I haven't solidified the dates yet. It'll probably be sometime in July, although we'll just have to wait and see. It's nice to have seniority, however. I have first choice in my department, and I should have it all decided this week. I just want to make sure everything is well set up for it. That, and hope that I don't have some big case hit me again and fuck it all up. I've had my share of those lately, so hopefully fate will give me a fucking break. I suppose I should make it sooner rather than later to give less of a chance for it to happen. Early July sounds good. I'll have to talk to Isaac about it.

Amber, Rolin, and the kids just got here, so I suppose I should go make sure the house is Markez proof. I'm not sure that's possible, but I have plenty of experience with these things after raising Mikel. Markez hasn't proven himself to be quite at his level, at least not yet, so perhaps things will be okay. Of course, he looks to be extremely hyper, so we'll see.

Have a good Memorial Day.

I'm in the middle of packing so I can catch my flight back to Colorado and start another work week. It seems to get harder to leave every time I have to do it, but such is life. I look forward to the day when I don't have to be on a plane so fucking much. If I never had to fly again, it would be too soon.

We've been getting things set for Ramon's graduation. We've ordered his cap and gown and invitations, along with a couple of other things just for him. He graduates in a little less than a month. He's getting very excited about it, and I don't blame him. Just a few years ago, he was sure he'd get nowhere except perhaps on the streets or in jail, at best. At worst, he worried that he'd be dead. I'm extremely proud of him for pulling himself away from that life and working so hard for a better one. And he's decided to go to Spokane Community College for a couple of years before moving on to a four year university, just so he can make sure to get the basics done. He's having a hard time deciding where he wants to go, so that helps him. He put in several applications to different universities across the country, and was accepted to most of them, which didn't help him in the decision process. He almost chose Eastern Washington University since so many people he knows have gone or are going there, but it just didn't feel like the right time for him. I can't say that I'm upset that he's going to be living here still while going to SCC. I've gotten used to having him around.

I really should finish packing so I can relax for awhile before heading to the airport. I don't have much to take, but I've been procrastinating more than usual. I suppose that's a sign that I'm feeling a little burnt out.

I'm going to get this written and done now. I have to catch a flight back to Colorado soon, and I'm not sure if I'm going to remember to write later. So this will be a short entry, which I'm sure you'll all understand.

Thanksgiving was very nice. It would good to be able to relax and enjoy the holiday. Now starts the busy time of year. I haven't done much in the way of Christmas shopping yet, and I need to get to that. Alyce was insane enough, as usual, to go shopping on Black Friday. I keep having to wonder if she was switched at the hospital with another baby. She certainly doesn't act like a Denny. Of course, that hope is dashed at the fact that she does have so many of the traits of my father. I suppose we'll have to claim her. Pity that.

All right, I need to finish packing and then eat the early dinner that Penny is cooking. It will be nice to have a home cooked meal before I leave. I usually don't have the motivation to make them just for myself when I'm away from here.

I'm going to get this done now so I don't have it hanging over my head. I haven't been as good at getting posts done as I would like, and I'm hoping to change that.

Work is going all right. It's not quite as busy as it was, but I expect that to pick up soon. The holidays tend to do that sort of thing. In the meantime, I've managed to catch up on everything I was behind on, so I'm feeling good about that. All that paperwork tends to pile up, and I procrastinate in getting it done because it's the most tedious part of my job. Some of it I understand, but a large part of it is just bureaucratic shit, and nothing important will ever come of it.

The recent shift in government has got me a little nervous about things, which isn't new. Whenever there's an election I get tense to see how things are going to go, and with so many Republicans now in office, it could be a serious pain in the ass. At least we've managed to elect a good governor. That should help out. Now let's hope that the idiots who got elected into the senate and house keep their heads on straight and get a clue as to what's really important. I can always hope, at least.

It's been pretty cold here, and we have a chance for snow tomorrow. I'm not sure how I feel about that yet. I don't mind snow most of the time, but it can be a pain in the ass when I need to get places. I'll reserve judgment on the weather situation for now.

I think I'm going to go out to dinner and then come home and relax. It's not as enjoyable doing it alone, but at least I have the chance to do it.

I think it's been a successful Halloween. The day seemed longer than it was, however. I suppose it usually does, especially with Markez running around like Mikel used to do. Talk about nostalgic. At least I didn't have to deal with him. That's something.

Things are still going on at the various houses, although we kicked people out about half an hour ago. I have to get up early to catch a flight so I can get back to work, so I'd rather not have to deal with people and noise until the wee hours of the morning. Isaac looks pretty worn out, so I think it was a good call. Penny's still off with Duante taking part in the festivities, and I don't expect that Ramon will be getting back for another couple of hours. He'd better be ready to get up in the morning for school.

We had quite a few trick or treaters drop by, but not enough to empty the bowl of candy. It's still about half full, in fact. I need to do something with it before we get a visit from Markez, who'll likely snag it all. He's gotten enough from trick or treating, so he really doesn't need anymore. Not that he needs what he already has, of course.

The people next door have been having a rather loud party all night, which is going to get very annoying if it doesn't quiet down soon. I'll be happy to go knock on their door and threaten the police if they don't tone it down. We've been paying quite a bit of attention in case Sonny has any trouble there, and I know Panther has positioned himself where he can't be seen to keep an eye out. He's good at such things. Luckily, Drake is staying at Cheyenne's house for the night, so he doesn't have to deal with the obviously drunk assholes.

With that, I'm going to go prod Isaac to get his post done and then spend the rest of the night quietly. Perhaps an early bedtime is due. We'll see. Sometimes it's nice just to relax on the couch together.

Time to get this post out of the way so I don't have to worry about it over the weekend. I need to head back on Monday to get back to work, as much as I wouldn't mind an extended vacation. Things tend to fall apart when I'm not there, I've noticed. And Walter actually nicely asked me if I could come back since they're starting to get swamped.

It's been a nice vacation, however. I'm glad I was able to be here for Penny as she started at the community college, and I think she's settled into it nicely. Her anxiety level has been greatly reduced, and she's even made a couple of friends, so that's a very good thing. I know she'll do well, so I have no qualms there.

This weekend is going to be spent with as much family time as we can manage. Penny always gets a little down when I have to leave, so I want to leave on a good note. Tomorrow night we're going to go out to dinner, and Duante will be coming along as well. It makes Penny happy to have him do family things with us, and I'm glad he can come along with us. He seems a little hesitant sometimes to join in with these things, but I'm hoping that will go away soon. The more we immerse him in Denny family things, the better it'll get, I'm sure. He does fit in quite well too, so that helps.

We also have a few DVDs to go through tonight. Ramon is anxious to see some things, and Penny has one or two movies she wants to watch. We're also borrowing Gayle's first season of the show "Supernatural" as well since Ramon has wanted to watch it and she says that it's very good. We're usually not much for television, but I'm willing to give it a shot. At the very least, it will make Ramon happy, and I suppose that's important. He tells me it is, anyway. I'll take his word for it.

Dinner's getting put on the table, so I'll go and eat, then we can have our movies. I see a long night ahead.

I got a call from Walter a few minutes ago informing me that I have to be back there on September 6th for the first round of court appearances in my current case. While I'm not looking forward to going back, at least I have a little more time before the need arises. I'll likely only have to be there for two or three days at this point, but there will be more in the future.

It's been nice having all the time off that I have, although I'm afraid I've not been productive at all. I usually hate not doing much of anything, but lately I'm content to just relax. I haven't had a case that grueling in years, and it certainly ranks in the top three of those. Isaac's been very sweet and attentive, and Penny's been cooking her little heart out. She's also been acting quite nervous about her upcoming first day of college, but there's still just under a month left before that starts. I know she'll do very well, but her confidence is, as usual, lacking. I hope that this proves to her that she's a very intelligent young woman with a lot of potential. I know she'll blow them all away in her cooking classes. After all, if there's something the Denny family knows, it's food, and good food is quite important to us.

Ramon's bemoaning the fact that school is coming up for him as well, although he still has a little time. They're starting later than usual this year, with September 8th being the first day. That doesn't comfort him very much, however. I'm sure it doesn't comfort Rolin very much either, since that means Rafiq will be going back. I hope he handles it better this time. I tend to worry more about him these days than I do Rafiq. He needs to let himself heal as well, instead of concentrating completely on Rafiq. That day will come, I'm sure. I just hope that it's sooner rather than later.

I suppose I should cut this off now and go see what Penny's up to in the kitchen. It smells very good, and I'm getting hungrier every second. Hopefully dinner isn't too far off.

I'm sitting up here in the house in Washington, finally getting a chance to relax. I flew in last night, and will be here for at least a week, and hopefully longer. I keep tensing every time the fucking phone rings, which it thankfully hasn't done too much. The last thing I want right now is to get a call telling me I have to go back because of some fuck up or another.

Things, for the moment, are in order at work. But I don't remember the last time I had a case that was so fucking difficult to resolve. If Tony's father had lived, that case might well have turned into a bigger nightmare, but who's to know? I just know that this entire thing is so fucked up that I'm amazed it only took as long as it did to get things to this point.

But no more work talk for the moment. I just wanted to get this done so one obligation was out of the way and I don't have to have it hanging over my head until the next two week period. I'm just glad to be here with my family, and soon I'll be indulging in another one of Isaac's lovely back rubs. He gave me a nice prolonged one last night, but I still feel far too tense and tight. He would have done it for me all night but for the fact that I made him stop when his hands started shaking too much. It just means I have an excuse to get another one today, anyway.

I do want to go over and see Mikel soon. While he seems to be doing better, he's still not doing great, and I want to see him myself and have a talk with him if he'll do that. I doubt it, but it's worth a shot. I'll drop by Charlie's place after that and see how he's doing as well. At least my daughters are doing all right. Now I just need to get my sons headed in that direction. And seeing Kendra will certainly help lighten my mood as well. She's very good at that.

Now that I've thrilled you all with my update, I'm going to sit back and relax some more for a little while. Penny's making a very nice dinner tonight, and the smells coming from the kitchen make me realize just how much I've missed home cooked meals. Especially hers. Life is good right now.

Time is flying by far too quickly with all that's going on. It's already approaching the middle of July. I've somehow lost a month or so.

I actually managed to get home earlier tonight than most nights lately, so I'm going to take advantage of that and go to bed soon. Who knows when I'll get this kind of time again? Work has just been a huge clusterfuck, and this case is driving me crazy. Before I know it, the entire summer will be gone and I'll have seen my family hardly at all. Such is the nature of this job sometimes, unfortunately.

Isaac's going to try and visit for a couple of days again soon, and I'm sure that will lessen my stress again. He's good at that. And Rolin will be here for a couple of days himself soon, so that's another family with whom I can touch base. A little is better than none, I suppose.

I'm going to cut this short, as seems to be getting a habit lately, so I can call Isaac and talk to him for a little, as well as Penny. Then I'm going to bed. I wish I could turn off the phone for the night, but I have to keep it on, just in case. Let's hope for no interruptions.
