Hot Week

It's been hot over these last few days. The weather outside has been nasty. But you know what? The emotions in my house have also been heated.

Ever since I found out where my mother was, and ever since my grandmother took a downturn with her health, it's been a frustrating week en la Casa de Andrés. My dad and I had been quite close to just making each other explode. I had been on a wild emotional roller coaster, shifting rapidly from despair to fury to depression to frustration to near total insanity. Last week was a rough week, and I'm glad to see it over.

Yesterday, I finally had a chance to be me again. I was smiling again. I even had a little "happy fun time" again. I was with a friend, and it was such a relief that as I was looking at this friend, I remembered that my life isn't all that bad.

I guess the heat still rages on outside. But at least now, the emotional heat has abated inside this house. My dad and I are OK again. He got answers to his prescription queries, and I'll get my laptop fixed soon. My grandmother is lying quietly on the living room sofa. My mother is at the assisted living home, hopefully getting some type of help. Life goes on, and a cool calm has finally settled down upon my house.

Finally, the heat is gone.
