I've been avoiding the blog. There are many reasons for my absence but the real reason is that I've just simply been avoiding it. 

Things are hectic as usual during fall. Courses are starting and taking up a lot of my energy and time not to mention private students. This fall has been dotted with difficulties though. My grandmother passed away. It was unexpected and harsh as I'd just seen her when I was back home visiting. She was in excellent health when I saw her and it came as a complete shock. Both my sister and I live disconnected from our extended family so people couldn't get in touch to let us know. We were devastated. Admittedly though she was very old and perhaps it's better that she went fast and painless at the age of 94. 

Bf is in the process of setting up his apartment. He has even freed up closet space in our place for me, but he isn't moving out yet. He spends a lot of time over there installing furniture and getting things set up. I went to pick him up the other day and used the washroom. It was a bit disconcerting to see a toothbrush and razor in there when he hasn't been sleeping there. It makes me nervous, but I try to ignore that feeling. 

He set up a whole display of photographs glued to the back of his front door from our various travels many of which are shots of me and him or just me. It's just something I found very sweet. 
He was also good when my grandma passed on and kept close. 

I will try to keep up with the blog more I promise.

Don't worry about us, we'll be fine. Real life takes over and, as a friend of mine said, when a blog becomes homework, you need to take a break.

My grandfather-in-law passed away at 94 without a day of being 'sick.' He was just old but flirted with his caregiver until the end. That's the way I want to go, flirting with a who doesn't speak english while still trying to win the Lottery.

The BF situation is going to feel strange for a while. At least you only saw one toothbrush. :-) [Too soon?]
