Thank you so much for all the supportive calls, e-mails, and comments yesterday. I felt better immediately after I posted, and the rest of the day turned out to be not-so-shabby. It comforts me to know that other moms (moms I respect and admire) have felt the same way. We all got through it, and everyone's still breathing. Some of us are occasionally reminding ourselves to breathe deeply, but we're breathing.
I'm at work early today because BJ is in a big meeting and someone had to bring the snacks. I'm hoping to do something interesting with the kids this afternoon. Maybe we'll visit Grandpa Bob's pool.
So if I'm quiet, don't worry. I don't have my head in the oven. (It's electric, anyway...) I'm just trying to remind myself what we're doing all this for. This morning, we're doing all this for the Air Force, and this afternoon, we're doing all this for our kids. If I owe you an e-mail or a call, I'll try to get to it this evening.
Love and gratitude to you all,
