A Ridiculous Day!

So today has been a ridiculous day, truly unproductive and wasted...all of my own design...I woke up to a blue sky and instead of making a tea and going to sit in the sun on my balcony, I grabbed the newspaper and headed for the couch. And that is where I was until 1/2 an hour ago when I decided that in the interest of hygiene I really should shower and get dressed.
Why so unengaged you might ask?
Well, I work with young people in some difficult circumstances. I am a youth counselor and two of the young men in the area that I work in have been shot in the past month, one fatally, the other is completely paralyzed. There is fall out from this all over the community, and I think I just hit emotional overload this weekend. On top of this is my 81 year old father who lives alone, and my 27year old son who is in treatment for liver disease and quite ill.
Anyhow, sorry this is not my normal upbeat kind of blog...hopefully tomorrow will bring renewal!!
