Talked to my sister Kristi Tuesday. Her husband being laid off was one of the things way back at the beginning of the Bad Stuff of 2009. But it appears that he will have a job as of mid-August. The tough part is that it's driving oversized loads from here to Los Angeles every week. But the good part is that Kristi is going back to Montana for the rest of the year and at least part of next year to help take care of her grandkids while her daughter finishing her pharmacy program at the University. The reason her daughter needs help with the kids is that her husband is shipping out to Afghanistan - he's National Guard.
So, good that John's working, that Kris gets to spend time with her kids, that neither of them will be stuck here lonely without the other. Bad that I will miss my sister, and that her son-in-law has to go to Afghanistan. And I worry a bit about Kristi's health and her being back around the doctors who damned hear killed her before, but at least this time she knows what's wrong with her and won't have to blindly take whatever they give her.
Hoping maybe this and a couple things going on in the lives of other friends are signs that 2009 is finally turning itself around.
