The running has been sporadic lately. I could tell you that it’s still scorching here in Texas, that I’m so tired from 5 a.m. wakeup calls and from taking care of a 3-month old, but those are just small roadblocks. Those are just things I could work around or push through.
In early June I gave birth to a beautiful and healthy baby boy. After a few days at the hospital with nurses and family and friends helping, we were left alone in our little house with a newborn. Then my husband went back to work, and it was me, standing in a dark nursery, rocking a wailing baby.
