My husband came and helped me over his lunch hour on Friday. He works from home as a systems engineer. I have worked everyday in my classroom and there is still so much to get done. This week I am back officially and most of the time will be spent in meetings, so the push is on to get as much done as possible before the meetings start.
I’m frequently thinking of Robbie as I start the school year. I take a few steps forward and a few steps back. Grief is an emotional roller coaster. One moment feeling fine and okay to be out in the world and then something hits me and I am ready to retreat. It is going to take all my strength as this new school year kicks off.
