So, I hope you all have a happy and healthy new year. Karen's mother stayed over last night to make sure that Julian got to school. My mom should have already picked him up from school; hopefully I'll leave work on time and not cause additional confusion. Karen's mom will be back to watch Julian so I can go to shul, and she and I will hopefully figure out the next few days so that everyone gets food & sleep & shul, not necessarily in that order. I'll post again on Saturday with an update of some kind, even if it's just "AAAIGH I HATE SINGLE PARENTING GACK GACK GACK".
Wish me luck.
