I wondered if there was more to it than mere baby-momma separation anxiety. I'm also back in the States, commuting the 880 super ghetto highway to my former career, impermanently. Kind of like going back to a life you once ran away from. Maybe it was just first-day jitters. Or a big fat all of the above.
Thank you so much for your sympathetic, loving comments yesterday. Boy, are you ever a helpful dose to the day!
