Dear J-

We get on more of these roller coasters of emotion and terror every day. Did I tell you we found a Mandarin immersion program for figgy with TWO spots open in the first grade? Oh, scratch that — they’re now down to ONE spot. Panic and scrambling ensue: I need to get some boxes in the house so that we can start getting rid of stuff: books, clothes, make runs to the thrifts more effectively. And so we scramble to establish residency to snag up the last spot, but do we need to turn in the rental applications in person? And how fast? Meanwhile, there’s severance questions to ask.

No one said this would be easy. But at the moment it’s being absurdly difficult, almost as though we’re not taking this seriously enough (okay, the lackadasical packing is not helping).
