16 More Days

Damn does life ever slow down? I swear sometimes I feel like life is running past me and I'm too busy to notice. Just 16 more days until vacation. I can't wait. I will be spending 10 days and 9 nights with my beautiful girlfriend. Not only do I need the break from single parenthood, 2 jobs, 7 days a week work weeks, packing, moving, unpacking, 50 loads of laundry, taxi service, problem solver, Quincinerra (sp?) this and that, and cook... but I just really need to be in the arms of the one I love. I'll be meeting her son as this is my first trip to where she lives. I'm really looking forward to meeting him, especially after talking to him on the phone for months. Even if he does think I have a funny accent, lol. I told him by the end of my trip I will have him saying "y'all". Of course he doesn't think so but I'm afraid he just doesn't know how determined I can be. Muahahahaha. He wants to take me fishing (makes me feel special) but his mom says it will be too cold.

My sister is out of the "treatment community" now and has moved into supportive housing. She is going through some very intensive outpatient probation which entails four 3-hour probation classes a week. She also meets with her judge and probation officer weekly. The stress of figuring out how to fulfill all those obligations along with working at her new job to make the money to pay her probation fees and fines is taking a toll on her. Yet, on the other side of things I hope it's doing good things for her spirit to be able to call and talk to us whenever, to be able to come see us, to spend time with her daughter, and even to spend the night once a week.

So I leave you with some pictures from the Quincinerra (sp?) that my daughter participated it. (BTW, these were taken on a camerphone so they're not the greatest.)

Thank you Sassy, I'm kind of partial to her myself.

Just 15 more days and I will have the vacation I need and deserve. :)
