I say, "I'm fine."
It's not true. My grandmother has died. But she's on the far side of the globe and my kids don't know her. The kids' know a bit about death thanks to the beginning of Finding Nemo, but I really don't have the wherewithall to explain to them. In fact, I haven't told anyone out loud yet. A good friend got a text, as did my husband. And now, this - put off a day because family and friends should really hear by some other means than this.
