Why I haven't been answering the phone. Part 2

This is how the week has gone:

Tuesday morning: "May we have 20 - 30 photos representing your husband's life? and may we have them by Thursday?"
Tuesday evening: "Where are your family statements about what the loss of your husband has meant to you and your children?" Ah yes, those - the ones that are to be one-page, practical-not-emotional and, therefore, supposedly 'easier' to write. The ones the other lawyer said we didn't need until the morning of the hearing.

All I can say is it's a damgood thing I got laid off because this dealing with the last-minute is a full-time job.

Thanks be for friends with computer skills and my unwillingness to put away the photos The Juniors chose to represent The Sr Boy on the posterboards for the post-funeral BBQ and bike gathering wingding almost 3 years ago.

Thanks be for amazing English teachers for both The Juniors.

Thanks be for The Juniors who are dealing with this with suspiciously adult grace.

If this new stage were a child, it wouldn't even be in pre-school yet....

Only 3 more sleeps....

Off to dig in the dirt

Still breathing
