Out of the blue this week, (during my morning back-porch swing time) I was reminded of a day like that a few years ago. I don’t even remember what pushed me over the edge then, but I came home from work that day to an empty house and knew it was probably a good thing. To save my family from being my emotional punching bag when they got home, I headed to our neighbors to fire up their tractor (with previous permission) and mow the thigh-high grass on our back two acres. They weren’t home either so I was relieved I didn’t have to face anyone in my ugly state of mind.
