A Slower Day

Man day one of back to school and sports and we go in swinging. All the kids had full days of school either Caylee heading straight after to cheer for her longest practice of the week. Logan got straight off the bus and headed straight to soccer in the far rain. Here I am the morning after still in my robe when yesterday I was light years ahead at 6:30 am, but it’s okay. Tonight we have no sports and I am not sad about it. 

I have been working hard to stay off social media.  Well I don’t know if working hard is accurate, but it makes sense. It’s too distracting for me. I get absorbed into the world and their news. Mentally distracted by frivolous posts and memes. 

I did hear of an 11 year old boy who was hit in a crosswalk yesterday across from the school parking lot. It ended up being a younger impaired driver who stayed at the scene. He’s now in jail and a family’s life is ruined with the loss of their young son. You never know how fast life can end. I woke in the middle of the night after having a nightmare. A dream where I found Ian in the street after being hit by a car. A policeman was there helping him, but seemed overwhelmed and sad himself. For a moment I was in that scene. I could feel a touch of the pain and it was too much to bear. I am grateful for life and for my kids. I am grateful for my husband and my family.
