We tried having a good weekend with the kids and for the most part I think we succeeded. We retreated to my parents’ house which is always good for getting away (Mia calls it our “country house”). Sometimes you just need your mom – even if you don’t really talk about anything, sometimes you just need to be around her. Mark slept for nearly 10 hours each night over the weekend. I caught up with work that I was distracted from last week. We celebrated my dad’s birthday at an Italian restaurant (a first! And it was *his* choice!) and went to an Asian American Festival on a beachfront near their house.
It was all good distraction, but I’m not going to lie. I’m still on edge, but every day is getting a tiny bit better. Thanks to those sweet readers who emailed me. I probably won’t have time to write everyone back but I do so appreciate your emails. A few comments also got deleted accidentally – I’m so sorry if yours did not get published! We’re in the middle of moving our shop to another server, something I was in the process of doing last week. I’m not sure when we will reopen but we have all our other shops open on Etsy and Foodzie.
I know sometimes things just happen, but I don’t believe that what happened last week was without meaning. I learned something and it was very important.
