I’m not prepared to write an entire blog post right now, but I have the day off, and I’m not ready to take a shower and get the ball rolling yet, so here I sit, procrastinating for a moment. I just read Anna Laura’s newest entry, and it warmed my heart so much. We’re so, so, so alike. I crave sister-time like I never thought I would crave anything. It’s an ache that feels like I’m being punished. Punished for leaving. Nobody here is like my sister. This town is full of old wise-crackers with lots of money, and young whipper-snappers full of drugs and alcohol. Not a whole lot inbetween– except, of course, the middle-aged assholes (pardon) with chips on every shoulder. I’m not necessarily getting bitter about the place– I’m still enjoying my time pretty well. I just miss having friends.
And I should probably start doing things. Damn, I have a lot to do. Let me just make a list before logging off here:
- Take a shower
- Clean up the kitchen, dining room, and living room
- Water the tree
- Shovel the sidewalks
- Work on Adam’s present
- Work on our Christmas card
- Finish sewing stockings for my staff
- Walk to the store for milk
- Hem and mend two of my dresses
- Do the schedule for Christmas & New Years
I should probably get milk first though, so that I can drink coffee up until 1:00. Yeah, that’s a good idea..
