It's been a while since I've posted -- okay, a long while. Picture a kaliedescope of images swirling past -- fast forward though holidays, work, milestones, illness, just life in general -- a blur of realities bringing us to this moment. And here we are. Back in the present. (That was my movie fast forward through everything that happened since my last post.)
Today was a nice day. I got to have some "me" time. I was going to see a movie, but nothing sounded appealing, so instead I went to the bookstore and read a book while I ate my lunch. Then I went shopping. It is so much easier to shop without my son. He's actually a pretty good shopper most of the time, but without him there, I don't have to worry about hurrying, or what he needs, or where the bathroom might be. (Okay, I still need the bathroom for me, but you know what I mean.) Of course, I also had some mother inspired guilt and bought him a present, especially after my sister called and said he wasn't feeling well.
