One way of coping with difficult and complicated days (like today; Ru-Jun semi-sick, possibly feverish, visit to doctor after she was “under the weather” at school; and generally being high maintenance), is just to relax, take things slow, one at a time, and try to marvel at how ridiculously complicated things are. It’s just amazing. But also realize that we are lucky that things aren’t worse, and plenty of people have it worse than us.
Driveway got resurfaced today. Expensive but it looks good. It was a needed job.
