This week I did something that I seldom do: I went underground. Since last I blogged, it has been a shitty week and I have “opted” to (and by “opted” I mean unable to do otherwise) shut down. Phone calls were unanswered and text messages, if responded to at all, were done so with as much brevity as possible. It was just that kind of heartbreaking week.
Without getting into much (read: any) detail, camp was not the success we had all hoped for. While Jessie did spend a few days experiencing all that they had to offer, it was simply not the right fit for her. Not surprisingly, this was a blow to her, the family and the camp administrators who (in contrast to the camp earlier in the season) did everything in their power to make things work. It just didn’t. And that is okay…but hard to take.
In keeping with my being shutdown I am going to leave it at that. I appreciate all the well wishes and I know that you were all right there with my in crossing your fingers and toes for a great experience. I feel like I owe it all to you who have been so lovingly following our story, to let you in on my unexplained silence all week.
With love and appreciation for all the support,
