Not the greatest week. The usual springtime depression hit me a few weeks ago and is letting up only very, very gradually.
On the up side, Richard gave me a fabulous anniversary present - a Brompton folding bike. I haven't had a bike in years. It's nice. I haven't got the hang of folding and unfolding it quickly yet; given how klutzy I am, that'll take a lot of practice.
On the down side, my grandpa went in for surgery Monday morning. His cancer spread. Extremely stressful for my grandma. The prospect of losing him is unbearable for her; she spent 17 years of her life unmarried, and more than 60 of them married. They're more or less inseparable. At times like this it's difficult living 1500+ miles away.
I've developed a bad habit: Grinding my teeth. I've never done it in my life, so I don't know why it's starting now. It's awful; gives me headaches, and most of the time I don't even realize I've been doing it until the headaches and jaw-aches set in.
