A difficult day for the Teen translates into a difficult day for me.
I'm better these days about compartmentalizing, and I'm glad to have the mental and physical outlets of homeschooling and karate and childbirth class to keep me from dwelling on things over which I have no control.
But even the compartmentalizing takes extra effort, and now I'm drained.
Ready for a warm bath and about 10 hours of sleep in a cozy bed with Savageman and My Cat.
Grateful tonight for caring family and friends and for the long stretches of normalcy we have come to enjoy between the crises.
