When asked how often I'll update the blog, I genuinely reply that I'll update whenever I have the emotional capacity to do so. I'm breaking that rule right now.
There is so much rattling around in my head right now, but I can't string them together internally, let alone name them aloud. But this week truly put us through the ringer.
And just when I think things in this system couldn't get any more bizarre or backwards, I'm completely knocked off my feet in unexpected ways. This week, for instance, I discovered that I am being mischaracterized by a judge. So... that's new.
I'll leave it at that, because I have no sophisticated insight to offer. I'm actually okay right now; there's nothing we can do about it and it doesn't affect our day-to-day.
BUT, your take away from this post should be that I just used 'affect' correctly.
