Why Did You Go?

I had hoped to spend today writing about the mischief that Aiden and I got up to on Friday night. Or perhaps about the date with Kade I was supposed to have last night. Unfortunately, instead we are scrambling to prepare for a long drive out to Alberta. We received word yesterday that Jack’s aunt, to whom we were all very close, passed away unexpectedly. Neither of us were prepared for the news, and suddenly the trip we had planned for later in August has been pushed up to immediately. Travel insurance had to be purchased, laundry done, arrangements made for the smaller animals that we are laving behind. The emotional toll has left us both despondent and sluggish. It feels as though I’m moving in slow motion, or trying to run through deep water.
Posting will be light for at least a week I would think. Jack and I have replayed this song at least half a dozen times since yesterday afternoon. It fits so perfectly with what has happened.
