Well, the last few weeks have provided a long winding road of emotions.....I'm glad to say that I think the majority of the chaos is over.
Most of you know that my step-mother, Roberta, passed away a few weeks ago. Her illness had been a huge struggle for me because of our lack of contact over the last few years. Her battle is over now, and I pray she is at peace.
Of course, our precious Ian was finally brought into the world only about ten days ago, and boy what a scare that was!! I'm very happy to say that he and Mom are back at home and from what I hear, all is well. That little Ian gave us all a good scare....I think he'll do everything to the extreme if he follows his ways of his first few days on this earth.
One of my best friends, Mandy, got married last weekend. After seeing the struggles she's been through, I am so excited to see things working out for her. I am puppy-sitting for her right now, so I have five...yes...five wienie dogs at the house right now.
The wedding was beautiful and flawless. Nobody fell or messed up their lines. No one knocked over any candles or caught their hair on fire, so it was perfect. Now, I'm not normally an emotional person, but for some reason, Mandy really got me when she was dancing with her dad at the reception. I sat with her younger sister and teared up while they danced to Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton. It was good to see her and her father so close that day. They get along well, but aren't as close as I was with my father. Of course, I compared a lot that went on that day to how I would've been with my dad, so I was abnormally emotional that day.
Ryan and I also had our good friends Jeff and Karen, from St. Louis, over for the weekend. What a hectic weekend to have company, but we still managed to cram in a lot of partying....it's always so good to see them. We only see them a couple times a year, so it's always hard to say goodbye.
I picked up the phone shortly after Jeff and Karen left, only to hear my mom on the other line crying her eyes out. Her cat had been hit by a car. The really bad part of it is the fact that the nieghbors saw it happen and said the driver swerved to hit the cat.....ooohhhhh that pisses me off!!! That's just like hitting a little girl's kitty.....my mom takes things like that very hard. Although she doesn't mean to, she often exresses her emotions in a very childish manner, so I've been trying to console her the past few days.
However, I have felt extremely happy about the beautiful weather we've had recently. I've been able to get out and do some yard work, which always makes me feel good. I always say I'm solar powered....I feel much better when I have the sun to fuel me.
So, after the roller coaster of dealing with death in a couple different situations, new life being brought into the world, good company, beautiful weather, and sharing the joy of marraige of my friends, I'm ready for a slow steady predictable ride for awhile............
........anyone have a Harley they could take me for a nice long road trip on??????
Ready when you are!!!!!
