emotions ran high yesterday. frustration. anxiety. sadness. tears. joy. soon after i put my bag down at work, i had to address an issue and an unrelated conflict from the previous day. thankfully, i still had one more day to exercise my 5pm departure time. scooped up the kids and scooped up the husband to have the family reunited in the midst of learning about the death of my husband’s first cousin and his godfather. i fell asleep early.
