Managed to get E to and from school ok. Mom came and sat with the big kids and it was a huge help. Credit where credit is due.
She also brought some pastry and a scone, so all I’ve had today is carbs.

They stayed up later than they have been lately though and I need a nap. Someone posted a Swahili-language video in a local refugee aid group I’m in and I watched it. After my second watch I sort of felt my understanding return. Then I realized it was some Christian going on about the benefits of forgiveness in a marriage. And that is how I came to spend the afternoon talking myself out of getting into an argument in Swahili about the nature of forgiveness.
