I am so happy to say that I have nothing to report this week. Everything is fine, everyone is fine, normalcy has resumed.
This week was like having a car accident. You're driving along, everything going just fine, and all the sudden you find yourself out of control, skidding and slowly slowly watching yourself crash into trees at the side of the road. You sit there in your crushed vehicle, radio still playing, and wonder what to do. The only option is to pick yourself up, take stock of your body, and move on. Call the necessary people. Rent a car. Wait for the insurance decision. Repair, buy a new car. Each day you get a little stronger and drive past the spot where the trees show the raw scars of what happened. You stop having flashbacks every single time. You stop wondering what you did wrong. Months later, the trees have grown new bark. You have healed. Life is normal again. This is where I am with my family, mentally trying to drive past the accident spot. We are getting stronger. The scars are disappearing. Everything will be alright.
