Mainly because with the issues with the car, I didn't want to take a chance breaking down away from home. The car made an awful sound earlier as I turned, for example. That might have been the ball joint, which along with the rear brakes, needs replacing. My car is also running rough if the defroster or heat is on. Apparently everything's breaking down at once.
I did call my mom at the hospital, but no one answered. I'll try again tomorrow morning.
We're not playing the game for a few weeks. Brenda's mom is having issues, too, and she's going to go visit her for a few weeks out of state. She'll try to get back in time to take me to my procedure in early December.
I finished Tehanu today, and I checked The Other Wind out from the library on my Kindle, and I also put Tales from Earthsea on hold, since the library only has the collection of short stories in print form.
Okay, I'm headed to bed. Have a good night.
