On Being a Grownup


Three days ago I took Anna and my son to the hospital because he breathed heavily and didn’t drink anymore. He’s doing fine now but the doctors wanted her and my son to stay at the hospital for monitoring, and I’ve been alone at home since then.
Since then, I have not showered, I have not done the dishes, I have not had breakfast or lunch, and every night I stayed up too long and had trouble getting up the following day.
Basically, I’m lost when I’m alone and I’m looking forward to having my family back with me at home, so I can be a responsible grownup again.
