Today is a little better and I'm not a puddle of snot. By lunch the swelling had gone down enough that I could actually see. The headache (always get one when I cry) is subsiding.
There will be more to come, I'm sure. Grief always rears it's ugly head at the most unexpected time.
This afternoon I decided to take J to the Big City to get some sushi, in an attempt to make it up to her for being such a lame parent yesterday. Ummmm, made it almost inside the perimeter and discovered it was sleeting mixed with freezing rain. Guessing I was a pretty lame mom today too since it never occurred to me to check the weather. I made a u turn and tried to beat it back home.
I forgot to tell you how much your comments meant to J. It boosted her self-esteem in ways that are still showing themselves. Honestly I think her self-esteem grew three sizes on Saturday. Her face beamed and her giggle box turned over. Thank you so much for giving her such a tremendous gift. And....she loves it when she thinks she's helping other kids. She had some things she wanted to say to you and I was going to let her post today but I completely forgot and she's gone to bed. We'll try to do that tomorrow.
