The boys are sitting on the floor enjoying some pizza and watching a movie, while I perch on the edge of the couch keeping an eye on them and enjoy the lull, the quieter time before bedtime.
I’m gotten some leave time from work, a blessed relief during what’s been an incredibly difficult time. There will be a lot of rest in my future and dealing with some of the things in my head.
It’s kind of a mess in there, a tangled mass of threads that need sorting out. I’m a little scared about what tugging on some of those threads will yield, but leaving the mess alone isn’t really an option. It’s gotten too messy and it’s time for a bit of a yuletide/new year cleaning.
