There’s a special Hell… one Dante didn’t seem to find when he was cataloging Hells. It is the digging out of someone’s life and the red tape / paperwork involved in trying to pull together all of the loose threads they’ve left behind.
I’ve been trying to avoid the grief. Which is stupid because let’s face it, it’s water. Emotional water.
I do miss Jenn. I hate going through what she left behind. I’m sure everyone who is pitching in has to handle grief over and over again… and while we laugh, there is a bit of pain with each step.
So, here we are. I am glad I have the Five and everyone else around me. It’s just so fucking surreal and I keep waiting for someone to tell me they were wrong.
And I know that while she’s never coming home, she’s actually GONE home. To the stars and beyond.
I am sorry to tell all of you that my sister Jenn Moffatt passed away early this morning. Thank you all for your love and support. She is very well loved and I have faith knowing she is at peace, having set down her burdens and troubles.
First the Jenn Update. She’s doing well. Still under sedation but the surgery went great and she’s actually in the recovery ICU at the hospital. They are easing off sedation and trying to get her off the ventilator. Hopefully I’ll be able to see her waking up soon and complaining that all of her electronics are not there when I go in. I’ll have to at least bring her the phone. Dunno if they’d let her have a laptop in ICU. Also, when she moves out of ICU, we no longer will be able to visit unless they change the rules. But we’ll be able to zoom. So I have that to look forward to. I’ll have to load it on.
Today’s BORKING REPORT!
I am physically at work today so I did not get a chance to see the Potato off for his Bork today but this morning was chilly and a bit damp so I figured the Blond Potato would have a great walk.
His world’s still a bit upside down but he’s a happy little borker and went off into the world with an opinion and a light step.
From his Aunt Jessica:
Gus had fun on his walk! It wasn’t too hot out so he had lots of energy for barking at everything! He went straight to the water bowl when he got back inside.
So today is… a very busy and emotional day but The Blond Potato will not be taken from his bi-weekly rounds to secure the neighbourhood and give his opinions. Fresh from his bath and brushout, he left the house with his Aunt Jessica full of vim and vigor…and in FULL BORK!
He’s just gotten back, got lots of scritches and is doing his cooldown roll around the house and looking to see if someone won’t toss him a bit of bacon or perhaps even a full steak. Which well, no. But hope springs eternal.
Still… scritches and love were given.
From his Aunt Jessica who loves him dearly:
Gus had fun borking at everyone today! We were able to keep our distance so he was good. I let him roll around in the grass a little because I know he loves it!
His Aunt Jessica was running a bit later today so he didn’t hit the sidewalk until nearly 11. In fact, he came to get back scritches and didn’t even see she’d come in. Trundled off to his dog bed and then when she called him, he got SOOOO excited and rushed over to the door. Then, the Borking Potato was off.
They were gone a good while which is nice because it IS cooler and he does need a bit of a stretch. Came back panting and went to drink water as he always does but took the time out to get love from his Aunt before she left.
Now he’s sprawled out on the floor in my bedroom or perhaps the hallway, sleeping off the excursion.
From his Auntie Jessica:
I got Gus to walk a little farther today! He did try to stop and lay down and turn around where he usually does. But I got him up and walking a bit further! We had a fun walk and he’s tired and happy now!

Even the most dangerous of creatures has a soft spot. These bad, dangerous dads love their kids to death, but they need romance.
Every year, for a few short weeks, these hot men with a little extra in their blood get to be who they truly are. And this year, life has a surprise for them.

All it takes is the right man to bring them to their knees.

But when fae prince Rykoff of Harlow interrupts Hugh feeding, he catches Hugh’s daughter’s scent and vows to avenge the fae youngling he believes Hugh has captured.
Hugh had no idea his daughter’s teacher wasn’t human, and it rocks the foundation of his world. He must convince Rykoff that the fae youngling in question is safe with her vampire dad and can prosper in the mortal realm—or risk losing her forever.

Thomas has met her handsome magic-sensitive teacher before, but now would be perfect timing for them to get to know one another better…
If something wicked didn’t want to sink its claws into KJ too….
