One of my best friends, with whom I’d lost touch when she moved back east, had a baby today. I didn’t even know she was pregnant. She called me, not about the baby, but because she wants a divorce.
My little sister, my BABY sister, told me at lunch today that she was diagnosed with breast cancer on Tuesday. She’d never even mentioned finding a lump.
My son got suspended from school on Monday because he and a friend “table topped” another kid in the lunchroom.
The police sent an email to the neighborhood that two children report being approached by a “suspicious” man in a blue sedan this week.
And, my little brother got laid off on Friday.
All combined, this is just more of everybody else’s shit than I can take. I am so much more adept at being the center of my own chaos.
