Trying to spend as much time as I can with my family and even more time with my 2 year old son that does not live with my.
Love spending time with him as everything is such a big surprise and everything is happening :) 2 years ago
I have had several ups and downs in this arena.
Since my last post my Great Grandmother has passed away. I can honestly say that I think of her daily. I’m truly regretful that I could not have found a better way to be closer to her. I do my best to not dwell on it as I cannot change the past.
This past July/August I made a trip to California and saw my Dad for the first time in six (almost seven) years. We did not get along very well, which I guess I expected. Luckily, I only spent about a day and a half there.
At that point, my brother and I took a road trip together from San Diego to Tallahasee. We stood like too tiny ants on the side of the Grand Canyon and looked down. We oohed and awed at the site of the Petrified National Forest. We ate food laiden with chilis in New Mexico. We enjoyed the company of my Grandparents, Aunt and cousins in Texas. We chowed down on some local favorites in New Orleans. We brushed the edges of the Gulf Coast. And we got him unpacked and in his new settings at graduate school.
It was a fanastic time.
Currently, I am gearing up for winter which does not yield many traveling opportunities for me. My Grandparents are wanting me to swing down to Houston around Christmas. However, due to vacation availability at work, I am unsure of how easy this may be. I would really like for my boyfriend to be there with me if I can swing it. He went down there the first Thanksgiving we spent together and I’ve wanted it to happen again ever since. It is one of two times I’ve gotten to be in a house full of people I truly care about.
Next warm season I am hoping to ride my bike across Arkansas, Alabama, Mississippi and George to my brother’s place in Florida. These are states I really want to see more of. And now I have a good excuse for getting down there. Hopefully I can make this work with money and my employer. 2 years ago
I quit my job to spend more time with my family. Family is worth more to me than money. As long as I have enough money to live. 2 years ago
MA says..."I Reject Your Reality & Subsitute My Own!"Well, it's been four years since I've written...
a lot has happen, changed and I wonder what is going to happen next.
I can say, I am spending more time with my family. My mom passed away 3 years this week and since then I’ve have moved in with my dad. It’s going on a year and a 1/2. I never thought I’d do this, always said I won’t, but it just evolved over time and here I am. 2 years ago
There could not be a more urgent topic on any list than this one. This item will NEVER be finished as the people that are around you are a big part of making you!
The once you love and care for should be in the No.1 place on every list. 2 years ago
