I tend to not let myself get too excited. It helps to mitigate the disappointment when shit goes sideways.
Only days until the finish line. I let myself get excited. Summer was finally here. We were supposed to leave for New Orleans today for the quiz bowl tournament. Not only was I excited, but I spread that excitement to my friends, and they were excited too. They’ve been asking me about our plans, and letting them know I wasn’t going was splitting myself open again every time.
I let myself get excited. Summer had so much in store for us. For the first time in such a long time, I was looking forward to the future. We were going to take a trip to Wisconsin to pick up the girls after their stay with her sister. It was going to be such a fun trip. I was so looking forward to it.
The support structure is here in full force. Hardy and true. Built to withstand so much worse.
But even a clean break leaves things broken.
So, are you coming to the game?
