There is very little I find more annoying than going to all the trouble to make a complex plan…only to have it cancelled at the last minute due to some unforeseen (or even worse, eminently foreseeable) circumstance outside of my control. When I wrote the last diary column, we were planning to move Jae home on Wednesday…and that plan had to be cancelled. Now once again, we were planning to move her on Wednesday…only to hit another snag. To make it worse, this time I had to actually lay out money for the plan, and if it falls through several people will be put into a bind. As of this writing just a few hours before post time, I still have no idea what’s going to happen; maybe we’ll be taking Jae home tomorrow, and maybe we won’t. And given how badly she wants to go home, I haven’t had the heart to tell her that she might not be going just yet. So keep your eyes on Twitter; I’ll let y’all know as soon as I know. I just hope next Tuesday I don’t have to write another column much like this one.
