Today, briefly


Today, my eldest becomes a teenager. I will try to stop reminiscing about the day of his birth, for his sake. Okay, I won't try that hard.


Today, he gets to stay home from school and do whatever his heart desires. Apparently that is to stay in pajamas and play video games.


Today, my dad and stepmother are at the hospital waiting to find out what the protocol for her treatment will be.


Today, I am dressed up and awaiting a morning photo shoot for a magazine. Therefore, I am worrying about my hair. And have applied lipstick.


Today, the sun is shining, but there is the risk of a thunderstorm; also, we have two soccer games in two different cities this evening.


Today is underway. Thirteen years.
