I’ve been feeling a little down in the dumps all day today. It started this morning when I read the news story about the school shooting in Colorado where that 16 year old girl, Emily Keyes, was killed. I think it really hit me because she was a twin. Imagining my brother having to go through life after me being killed at 16 is a very sobering thought.

The only problem is he didn’t play at all. :-( That almost made me cry to hear. I guess we’ll see how he took it when I get home and talk to him. Poor kid. He is so into football and seems to really love it, so it’s a shame he didn’t get any playing time in.

I’m glad it’s Friday. This week was just a whirlwind and the days practically blurred into each other. I’m looking forward to some downtime this weekend. Well, tomorrow only, I guess – since Sunday is Aric’s birthday and party.
