I’ve been sitting in front of my computer for the past I don’t know how long trying to come with something remotely interesting and happy to write about and damn if the only thing I can think to write about is the unrelenting grind of life.
As in, Jake is just back from Afghanistan. He’s adapting back to “normal” life amazingly well, but these things — even for exceptionally strong and resilient individuals like Jake — take time to process. All I can give him is space and time and love. And Super Nachos. Lots of Super Nachos.
June is experiencing her own period of adjustment. She’s used to ruling over a kingdom of one. She’s used to being the sole star in mommy’s Milky Way (to use the most tortured, hackneyed analogy I could come up with). She’s not used to sharing mommy. She’s not used to sharing her stuffed animals with a new doggie who rips them to shreds for sport.
As for me, I just wrote a book that basically lays bare every insecurity, hope, fear, regret I’ve ever had and I’m kinda feeling a bit….oh, I don’t know, what is the word….DOH!!!!! YOU IDIOT!!!! I’LL NEVER BE ABLE TO SHOW MY FACE IN THE KROGER AGAIN!!!! right about now.
AAAAAAAAnd the flusher on our toilet is broken….the biggest mind flux of them all.
