Diary of a widower: “Back to school. I’m looking forward to getting back into a routine but I’m expecting a fight.

After Kate passed away in January, the school year provided much-needed structure for the next six months. I probably needed it more than the kids. A few hours of silence each day allowed me to work, sort through the admin of life, and try to define what normalcy would look like for all of us. The school also provided the boys with a necessary routine.

As days turned into weeks, Easter and semester breaks came and went, I began to see summer vacation as a kind of promised land. Everything would be fine if we arrived in July. Every morning during the final weeks of school, the boys asked how many days were left until summer vacation. Seven, six, five, four… The countdown was enjoyed. Soon the tyranny of the school would be over for her. And the drudgery of preparing school lunches every morning would be over for me.
