Posts for the Days to Come

We are really, truly moving. Politica is on the road; Curious Girl and I will be setting off in a week, taking the slow road to Germany. I'm running down the list of things to do before we go, and blogging all kinds of things in my head. As most of you probably can't read my mind, here's a glimpse at the mental blogging chez Granola:
  • Jesus and the Jonas Brothers: a post about all the things CG is learning out there in the world with little help from me
  • The Long Goodbye: what it's like to leave a place you've lived a while, with links back to a post by Elswhere in which she links to this amazing moving video of someone saying goodbye to his New York neighborhood.
  • My Vulcan Resonator: a post about children, anger, and parental feelings. Musings and questions about how to be angry with a kid, how to help kids deal with anger, and what's the next best thing to the cone of silence when your kid is itching for a fight.
  • Marriage Matters, and Lambda Legal is a wonderful organization. In June, Lambda filed suit on behalf of a woman whose partner collapsed on a cruise ship in Miami; at the hospital, she and their children were kept from their partner/mother for more than 8 hours, and after she died, both the county and state refused to release the death certificate to the family (despite the immediate faxing of the health care proxy).

Moving at long last...I wish you smooth transitions, and I am feeling extra happy about having met you on the internet, so I don't need to feel threatened by your move at all.

I do an awful lot of mental blogging myself. I'd have lots and lots more posts up if only I didn't have to actually, you know, write them.

Happy moving!

I too do mental blogging. Luckily, I am usually half asleep, walking to the train, or otherwise unable to carry through.

Have a safe and smooth move.

Ah, best of luck with the last preparations and for the impending slow drive.
