Handsocks Mama Blog: Interruption to Normal
When your day-to-day is reasonably predictable and things usually go the way you expect them to, even a small thing out of the ordinary can catch you off-guard.

It could be stressful, inconvenient, uncomfortable, and a complete interruption to our norm for several weeks. I have to make an intentional choice to not worry about things that "could" be.
