Big night last night for us. Michelle was the hit of the night and her speech will go down in speech history, right beside Barack’s. Bernie hardcore supports weren’t happy. They even booed Bernie earlier in the day but Michelle turned the crowd around. She must have been channeling you.
More stars are on their way tonight, tomorrow and Thursday: Joe, Mike Bloomberg,Bill, O, Chelsea and finally HRC, and then we’re off to bring the Clintons back to the White House. Trump frightens us more and more each day but hey, he’s the new head of the Republican Party and my heart goes out to the moderates who have big decisions to make in the voting booth.
For me, as we come to the end of July, it seems like every week of the summer has had its own unique shape and focus. This week my focus is getting a report finished for Andrea as she prepares a case for continuing with HVWP professional development at her school. As you know, I have trouble throwing things away and emails fall into that category as well. I have my correspondence with Andrea and her teachers since we began and that did bog me down. So after clicking and moving pieces I left them and started working from my memories. I began at the beginning, took a break and began at the end-.back and forth with lots of breaks for MSNBC. I can’t stay away.
Oh, as I sat here texting Leora, I did officially join Jdate and later, Match.com. Don’t get too excited. I’m just dipping my toe into the dating waters: flirts, winks, matches… Honestly, I’m just playing. As Kristen says, the man who steps in after you will need to wow me. I don’t know that I will want to share my life with someone else.
Remember, I am still riding in my car and seeing you fight to stay with us. I see you exploding in front of me. I hear you heaving… I reach for your hand and it slumps to your side.
Grieving is like birthing. You read books, you prepare a will, you set up the baby’s bedroom, you get the stuff, you have the deep conversations and then it happens. New life arrives, you leave and we are still here to figure it out. Life with new, enormous challenges.
How do we continue? How did I get here?
Miss you T,
