I was planning to spend most of the day working, while Baby went to a wedding with some friends. But the bridal entourage had a car accident, and among other casualties, the bride’s sister and niece died on the spot.
As you can imagine, the family is shell-shocked; the situation made even more difficult by the fact that they have to repeatedly explain to arriving wedding guests.
My friend dropped off Baby, her two kids and a mutual acquaintance’s kid at my house around mid-morning, so she could help the family deal with the new situation. They are watching Toy Story 2 as I write this post.
