Day 23

Dear everyone,

Sorry I haven’t done a very good job of replying to the thoughtful notes, texts, emails, and blog comments you’ve been sending me. I discovered I have something in common with angsty-Book-5 Harry Potter:

He was finding it hard at the moment to decide whether he wanted to be with people or not. Whenever he was in company he wanted to get away, and whenever he was alone he wanted company.

(From page 850 of my copy of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.)

Most of the time I just want Jarom around and not anyone else. I think I’ve been showing up at his office too much . . . with friends taking the kids off my hands lately, I don’t want to be home alone and I don’t want to go do anything.

So I’m sorry if it seems like I’m ignoring you. I really appreciate what you’re doing – and I hope you don’t mind if I keep to myself a little longer.
