I'm sure I'm biased. And it's common to lionize one's own mother after she's passed away, particularly as it happened at an early age (and in my culture the concept of one's own mother is one of tremendous reverence as it is), before teenage angst and rebellion could take a toll on that relationship.
Still, I really think that she was wise.

There may be great news on that very soon. I called in a favor with a real estate agent that has gotten a lot of both commission and referrals from me over the years. I explained as little as I could of the situation. She was on vacation but pulled through and yanked not one, but two junior agents out of their vacations to show me places and rush paperwork. Slim pickings but we found one.
So I very well may spend New Years assembling Ikea furniture in my new place. :)
And I need to make sure I get a Starbucks gift card or something for them. They really came through in a true time of need.

Could've written that myself, minus the daughter part. Peace and strength to you today and always. It gets better. I actually like my extended stay place. Been there since November 16th. It's home now
