So I am at the library … I had wanted to find a feature that ran on the ‘Today Show’ last week, but I have gotten sidetracked by my ‘YouTubing’.
I feel like I feel …
Talked to my Army sister today … I kinda sorta think she didn’t really understand what she was getting into when she joined. I wonder who she had to talk to when she was making her decision … <cue the organ for the guilt dirge>
She sounds strong right now. I like what I hear from her and things are building momentum in her favor. Same with her twin, though I haven’t heard from her recently. A phone card is a priority for next month, because I want to talk to EVERYBODY! Nothing special, just a generic, ‘I am thinking about you’ thing.
When I go down to Detroit, I will coordinate a visit with the eldest girl. It is hard for me to explain how I feel about my family. Though we are an affection bunch, I won’t pretend like I was close with everyone. Other than my soeur in Chicago, I felt alienated from my family during my teenage, and that extended into my adulthood.
The cumulative effect of envy is being felt. I have never begrudged partners and friends their family or friends, but I’ve often wondered what someone would make of me reaching out to my scattered family, since I have made a point to inform of my apathy towards them. I aim to find out, because that is on my ‘to do list’ for ’08. All trespasses, real and imagined, are forgiven. I want to make sure to spend time and see my sisters and my Aunt. My Father, if he would have me, I would like to go to Arkansas with him. That HIS Mother asks about me blows me away! I hope to get down there by March, with or without Pops.
… just gonna keep it movin’ …
