Recovery Day


Thanks so much for all the supportive comments.  I get by with a little help from my friends. :)

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.

If I lived in your neck of the woods I probably wouldn't think to check the weather for freezing rain either :).

Glad today is a little better...

hugs

We are in a place where we always check the weather before leaving. Lucky you.

Oh yes, please tell J to fire up her blog again. I would love to hear from her a bit!

Glad you're feeling better, sushi is always a great thing.
