Round the Corner

It appears Corey's dad has rounded a corner. This is a relief, to say the least. There came a day that I lost my optimism and felt the dark weight of fear just squishing down on my shoulders. But then it was like that washed away, slid right down my back in fact, when I heard the good news.

We finally came back to Pittsburgh for a few days to do some work and take care of the house. And a good thing! Because some sort of creature appears to have knocked out the light fixtures in the bathroom (perhaps a gnargle? a blast-ended skroot?) and they are smashed on the floor upstairs. Also? The kitchen is filled with ants. Lemonade remnants hastily wiped up, you know...

It's amazing to me how quickly I can return my focus to the mundane after my head has been so utterly distracted and consumed by fear for so many days. It feels so normal to worry about clients and revisions and whether Corey will wake up in time for work.

I'm glad to hear that Corey's dad is improving! I've been hoping that I'd hear that from you soon!

Yay Herb! Here's to more mundane things to worry about in the future, and not too much craziness.
