~I don't have much to say today, but thought I should go ahead and post "something" just to move the previous post down. It's soooo unbelievably sad & depressing. It is consuming me today. I didn't even know these people. My mom had been at their house for a progressive dinner last year and spoke with the wife for some time. I guess that's why I cannot seem to get it out of my mind. They weren't TOTAL strangers, I know someone who 'knew' them and that makes it sting just a little bit more.

~I don't typically read and re-read the news, but honestly, I've been spending ALOT of time on the local TV news websites as well as our local paper today. to the point of reading the random comments from citizens. i never do that.

~I was in a meeting today. totally did not paying attention. drifted off countless times thinking about these poor children, witnessing their mother being killed. WTF? How do you deal with that? Sure I'm going to be a school counselor but I can't even imagine working with someone on an issue like this. The children were 6 and 3. There is an older girl who was away @ cheerleading camp. Not sure of her age though.

~I have a 30 minute meeting to go to shortly. probably won't get much out of it though, considering i'm having difficulty focusing.

~hope your day is better. i'm so glad tomorrow is thursday. just a day for me and E. We have playgroup @ 12pm. looking forward to doing nothing else but lovin' on him.

It's startling when something horrible happens and it has personal ties to you.

I have goosebumps thinking about the kids.

Enjoy your E time tomorrow.

If you weren't pre-occupied with the tragedy in your community, I'd think you might not be right in the head. It's going to be a while until you all recover... and that's ok.

Hope you have a good time tomorrow and can let your mind get away from it for a little while.

It is a horrible tragedy, made even worse by the children's presence. Take your time, don't feel like you have to blog, we'll be here when you are ready.

I think something like that touches everyone whether you knew them or not. It's so incredibley sad to have something like that happen at all, let alone in front of innocent children.

Try to look forward to your day with E tomorrow.

I really can't even fathom what those kids have had to go through. My heart goes out to them.

I did many of the same things when they had that stabbing at my apartment complex a couple of years ago. I didn't know the people involved (it was domestic, not random, thank God--random acts of violence scare the hell out of me) but to have it so close, to see where *I* live on the news, drive by the police tape... It *does* make the things we see on the news seem far more real. I hope you went home & hugged E & felt a little better.
