"Do you suppose there is such a place Toto? A place where there isn't any trouble?"
I wanted to have a perfect vacation like they were, but the other shoe totally just dropped and due to a super virus they are the last ship of healthy people. Smh.
They get SO morbid when I go on trips…. Lord knows I haven’t taken a family vacation in- well since my Aunt died, so all my vacations now are alone or with friends. Not that I object to it at all, I like both family and non family vacations, but for different reasons.
I’m diverging. My family gets morbid when I leave them. “Have a safe flight.” “I love you.” “Don’t drown.” They play it off in jokes, but it’s morbid. I end up feeling sad that I’m leaving them, when in all actuality I REALLY NEED the vacation from THEM! Smh. Them and work.
It’s almost like they’re making me feel guilty for leaving them… Maybe if they showed their love more on a daily basis… Maybe if I showed mine more on a daily basis…
Maybe I am emotionally stunted when it comes to showing physical and verbal affection… Maybe it is becoming the earmark of our generation that we communicate better through technology than in person?
Am I forgetting anything….?
Along with Laurell K Hamilton & Sherrilyn Kenyon…
And I. Am. Not.
Yesterday ended on such awesome notes, how can today possibly compare?! That and all this cleaning and packing that needs to be done. :(
