Didn't call the most awesome woman ever today. And it is her birthday. So totally bummed and sad since I woke up and said to myself "self, charge your phone so that you can call mommy today".
That worked out great.
She's awesome and then some. I wish we were not half passed broke and that I could go and see her (and my baby brother) later this month. And that I could make it out to my HS BFF's wedding in NY. All that stuff is so contingent on so much that is out of our control - ie, Senate passing unemployment extension...job offer coming through...
Alas. All to say the only piece of the master plan that makes me sad that has not happened was having completed the plot to move my mother up north by about now. Or have her well on her way up here with some solid plans. Would have loved to celebrate her birthday in person this year.
Things will get better. It will happen. Not the memory thing because that is long shot. but the whole getting back on track to world domination piece.
Love you mom. Love you Dee. Wish I could do so much more to make both of your lives better.
Much longer delayed happy Bday to Q who I miss like my favorite shoe (because...well...that rhymes, I'm delirious from sniffing on the glue project I've been working on and I really really REALLY should just go to bed now. Says the puppy.
