The summer of 2010 was rather tough, but I'm not complaining. It's been quiet and uneventful in my own personal life. So much so that I'm looking for ways to fill the void left by friends who moved to Australia, friends who disappeared or went bankrupt, and friends who don't know how to be happy. My brother and his girlfriend had a son, Sean, who's been the source of amazement among my tired family. MS exacerbations, manipulative family and another failed apartment for my mom is finally getting her into assisted living and out of seclusion once and for all.
