I was there when the kids got home from school every day. I cooked dinner every night. I packed their lunches in the morning and helped them with their homework. Idrove them around. I willingly – no, gladly – sat through karate classes and baseball practice.

I didn’t have headaches, stress or conflicting priorities. I didn’t accomplish everything that I’d hoped.

I spent my last night with Frida, firelight, wine and my paint brushes.

Best week ever.
