Life is slowly coming back into balance. Today was neither stagnant nor exhausting. I don’t think I cried once.
It was a day for rubbing little feet (she loves it), kissing that sweet neck (please note, double chin emerging!), Boxcar Children and Little House, roasted tomatoes and pattypan squash from a friend’s garden, and children who are finally remembering how to play happily by themselves.
We are getting used to the temporary ban on kissing and touching Kiri’s face (Mommy excepted, but I try to only do it when no one is looking), and we are almost out of antibacterial soap. But everyone seems to be feeling much better, and I am hoping hoping hoping that we are finding a return to health and vitality.
