Thank you for all your kind comments, emails, mail, and phone calls! The long and short of it is that breaking down (in a small way, I assure you) made me think and talk, and thinking and talking made me feel better.
And so things have been better. I've been working on sewing projects and in the yard, and I started working out again.
Yesterday, we took advantage of the springy weather and used some of the (many, many) rocks I've been digging up in the garden for a craft.
I knew I'd enjoy painting rocks, but I was surprised that Noah lasted as long as he did. As a matter of fact, I totally lost track of time out there and we had dinner a full 45 minutes later than we usually do. It was worth it.
