We survived the week. Men are back tonight, and the routine will be back next week. I made it by a thread.
But overall, I was grateful for the depth of connection I was able to have with my mom – more than I’ve had in recent years. That connection was painful at times, joyful at times, nourishing in both directions, and hopefully indicates the start of a healthier adult relationship between the two of us.
Now, I’m headed downstairs to hear stories of Switzerland before the men crash – us women not far behind.
