I am tired, but less stressed than I’ve been lately, so that’s good. I’m looking forward to the week of Thanksgiving, not only because work is closed the entire week but because I am actually looking forward to the holiday. It won’t be so lonely this year, though it will have some undercurrent of sadness. Life keeps going on without Mom being here, which is both strange and comforting. My life hasn’t been stagnant by any means and I have so much to look forward to in the coming months.
