Woke the girls this cloudy, damp morning and started the normal preparation for school routine. I hugged them both as they got out of bed. Breakfast eaten, teeth brushed lunch packed, school bags readied.
I hugged them both in the kitchen. We looked for Ernie our shelf Elf, he left a note last night. The girls loved it. I hugged them.
We walked Megan to the bus stop, I hugged her as she got on the bus. I stood with the other Mom’s..starring at the bus, I waved goodbye.
A few minutes later stood at the bus stop with Madison. I hugged her tightly. The bus arrived, I kissed her head as she stepped on, I stood and watched her get into her seat then waved.
I came in side feeling empty. Pulled up FB to pictures of babies from CT. Closed the computer. Turned on the TV to a press conference from CT. I grabbed the remote and flipped on Netflix. Now watching “Weeds”..somehow seems appropriate.
There is nothing normal about today.
