I feel like my "stages of grief" are out of sync. I know there's a certain order in which they say it happens, but today I feel more numbness than before. I'm also angry, but the only way the anger is coming out is by yelling at my kids. I know they did nothing wrong but everything they're doing annoys me.
They're only 4 and 2 1/2, and I wish I could take this as easy as they seem to. 'A' understands it more than 'O' does. I wish I could take it like "George died, he's in kitty heaven, life goes on."
