I feel much better today. Yesterday was my first day back after the mess at school, and I had a hard time. Everyone wanted to talk about it, everyone has theories, everyone is upset. I lost it at lunch and started crying and begging them to talk about something different. They were more than willing to, so that was ok. I almost didn't go to lunch because I knew this would happen but I'm glad I did. My "funk" is starting to lift.
Kimber went to talk to the counsellor the school made available and they called to tell me how it went. She said she was doing good, but she was worried about Mom. They explained to her that Moms do worry about kids but they will be ok in a few days. She said on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being they feel their best, she said she is an 8. I guess that's pretty good considering!
They had an assembly at school with the entire school present. I think it was good for them to see all the other kids are doing ok too. They could ask questions, or just small talk. I think that was a great idea.
The "bad guy" as Kimber calls him is in jail. He was indicted yesterday and is being held on $1,000,000.00 bail. He looks so smug in all his pics and his mug shot. He refused to stop smiling for his mug shot even though they told him to. He said something along the effect of "I want them to see me like this." Gawd!
I still haven't gotten my stitching mojo back yet, but food tastes like food again so hopefully that will be my next baby step!
