    Things We Did Today

    We worked on (finally)building Emerson’s loft bed. We have talked about it since we built Ethan’s years ago. We made a few changes and aren’t quite finished but she can sleep in it tonight and we can finish the rest over this week or weekend.

Shit! I hit the unlock button and pulled again, hard enough that the door handle came off in my hand and I stumbled backwards. Shit, shit, shit! At gymnastics between classes a teacher is assigned to the door to greet…
