I wanted to tell you about a great new TV show that I watched last night but I can't. I have to re-watch Nashville for a few reasons. 1.) iKeith wasn't home to watch it with me. He was working late on a deadline. IT'S APP SEASON, BABY! 2.) I cried through most of it.
There's been a lot of sadness in Colorado this week. Friday morning, a 10 year old girl left for school and disappeared. I've been watching twitter and facebook and the news like a hawk each time there is a press conference. I've held my kids tighter and watched them closer.
Last night, they found a body.
I considered sleeping in my kids' room last night. Unwilling to let them out of my sight. Tears in my eyes and a heavy heart. I tossed and turned until Keith finally came home. I was uneasy until my family was all under one roof.
And now I sit here, coffee in hand....awaiting the 6:30am press conference. My heart hurts for Jessica's parents and family. I'm sure they didn't sleep at all and won't for awhile.
Please, if you can...say a prayer for Jessica Ridgeway's family today. Keep them in your thoughts.
And hold your kids a little tighter.
If you need me, I'll be sitting in the lobby of my kids' school.
Helicopter parents UNITE!
Update: Westminster PD will not confirm that the body they found last night is the body of Jessica. They are still searching. I'm feeling very uneasy.
