The past few days since our dog died have been an unpleasant blur. Half the family came down with a nasty stomach bug, and the other half nibbled cautiously on crackers and waited. I had planned to spend these last few days of school stocking up and organizing, but the best I've done is trips to the local quick stop to clear them out of ginger ale and chicken soup. By this afternoon most everyone was feeling better, and we made a last ditch Target run for teacher gifts in which I crossed my fingers the whole time that no one would throw up. I remembered the 10 on 10 at the last minute, and it gave me a nice distraction from the piles of laundry and dishes...and a chance to focus on those little things even in the difficult times.
