Girding my Loins
Yep. With Karla out of town for the next three days it will be me versus the terrible twosome. I will be outnumbered by two opponents who are younger, faster, and every bit as committed to their cause as I am to mine. It will be my job to get them up, breakfasted, off to school, picked up from school, taken to therapists, fed yet again, and put back to bed...and that's at a bare minimum. Some unreasonable types out there might expect me to bathe them as well.
And I've got to do all this without the house sinking into a mess the likes of which tends to collapse into black holes and destroy planets. Having the fate of humanity on my hands is a solemn responsibility, and I'll do my best. Just know, I'm behind enemy lines and not expecting rescue. It's a far, far better thing I do...and all that.
Anyways, here's wishing the best to Karla and her family in Ohio as they face this crisis. My thoughts and love are with them all.
