I cannot die. Ever.

It’s 4 a.m. and I haven’t been able to sleep at all. I haven’t gotten this anxious in a while. I purposely have fought from drowning in the thoughts of my son’s future. When I feel these fears come up, I’ve learned to push them to the back of my mind and forget them. And…

Grateful.

We are staring our 5th week in quarantine. My daughter is trying to take her classes online while my husband tries to teach class in the garage to avoid distractions as much as possible.

The results.

The verdict? He won third place! He did amazing! My sister went to check up on him for a bit in the morning and she said he was doing great. His teacher kept sending us updates and pictures during the day. She did say he became very excited and had an accident. My husband had…
