Anyway, I raced home, went to the couzo's birthday party and then drove my little cousins home. It kind of sucks. I feel pretty bad for the youngest, the older one is okay, he's in HS so he's old enough to know what the situation is. But the youngest...it killed me dropping them off tonight to an empty home because mom has to work and dad doesn't live with them. I know it happens to lots of people all over but it's not fair. She deserves a mommy and daddy.
I wish there was more I could do. For them, for the kids at work, for my friends, for you. I'm just as resigned to my fate as the rest of the world I guess. Maybe I'll go to bed tonight, and tomorrow I'll awake to find everything is okay.
It could happen.
