Mama Deb

Yeah, I'm bored. Also, I'm in trouble.

I just got a major plot bunny.

I wanted a simple pwp - Vimes/Vetinari. But then there's Lady Sybil to worry about because I like her. And I came up with a solution (a *bad* one, because I really do like her) but one that calls for major back story.

The only way to make this work is to make the story *long*. So. In my head, I'm now writing a long Discworld story that will probably make a lot of people mad at me. Except for those who won't read it because they have no idea what Discworld is.

I'm in trouble.

Mazel tov!

Pretty much exactly a year ago (less two days), my cousin Rachel lost her husband of many years to ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease.) He was a gentle, sunny man who managed to survive long enough to see several children married - he even got to attend a son's wedding a week before he died.

Today, we found out that Rachel is getting married again. Tomorrow. He's a neighbor, they've known each other for years. If I go to her house at 10AM tomorrow, I can go to the wedding in Lawrence, NY. For which she's currently cooking because they were going to have a barbecue, but the weather isn't cooperating. They chosen to have a small second wedding (since their custom says that children don't attend parent's remarriages, it would be small.)

I don't think I'm going, and there won't be sheva brochos, but I'm very happy she's found someone else.
