In the "Well, that's peculiar." vein, some of her old photoIDs from work are missing. They were in a small, wooden jewelry box when my aunt gave me what little keepsakes my mom had left, back in November. I remember commenting to Q about Mom looking so unhappy in the early photos. (that, and how the quality/security features from State Prison employee IDs in the mid 80s was... lacking. It was mostly a person with a Instamatic Polaroid camera, scissors, some glue, and a photocopied card, as needed.)
I've been trying to not break down, but the past few days have been difficult, not gonna lie. Mailing off a package Wednesday, I also picked up some Star Trek stamps, and it was all I could do to not start crying there, in the USPS office. I had sent mom a sheet of the Planet stamps last year when she needed some, and here were new ones, "Live long and Prosper". Yeah, sounds lame typing it out. I know.
So few photos of her. I can't find one that I've been looking for. Perhaps I can find it on one of the backup disks (assuming THEY don't vanish, as well...)
Miss you, Mom. I keep knitting, and still don't know WTF i'm doing...
