So if you’ve been checking back to my blog fairly often you’ll notice that I’ve changed the theme. A lot. I can’t help it! I’m just too picky, and I can’t stay with anything for too long without getting annoyed. I’m just a self-confessed organizational freak! there, I said it.
And I spent the day doing just that, organizing. Between being on mold patrol and working on my research paper. My apartment seems to have developed numerous green rashes. I really dislike heat so the walls have been acting out in displeasure towards that. Moisture is the enemy. I cleaned it all up, washed out a ton of clothes, and now I’m resting.
I actually just got off the phone with family from home. Sunday nights are reserved for such things. It usually starts with Aunt Lucy, then goes to Dad. Mom and I have chats throughout the whole week, she’s become a strong lifeline to me since I left home in 2006, she keeps me in check.
I also got a special treat tonight, I got to say hello to my grandmother who I haven’t talked to in months. She’s very ill and tonight she was feeling good enough to speak to me, even though it was very brief, it made every tiny problem I had in my life dissolve. I can’t wait to visit her this Christmas.
There’s nothing like family. There will never be anything like family. You’re stuck with who you have so you might as well get used to that fact and do the best you can to get along. I have a great relationship with my family, but it didn’t come easy sometimes. But when you grow up and look at the big picture, you’ll see family is exactly what you need to get by.
Well, all those words of wisdom have made me thirsty. Going to go finish off this bottle of coke and get back to my homework. So glad to finally be feeling better.
